The entire trail, Deutsche Weinstraße actually leads over a distance of about 100 kms from Bockenheim in the North to the Weintor in Schweigen to the South, on the border to Wissembourg in Alsace. Obviously, it is always possible to do this trail in stages, for example, from Neustadt an der Weinstrasse to Deidesheim, Wachenheim or Bad Dürkheim (or vice versa).
Between Neustadt an der Weinstrasse and Bad Durkheim there are regular train connections, every half-hour, with which you can easily return to your starting point. The trail leads along the edge of the Palatinate Forest and offers beautiful views over the vineyards and the Rhine valley. The picturesque wine villages along this trail are Gimmeldingen, Königsbach, Forst, Wachenheim and Bad Durkheim.
