The Pfatz Wine Route

The oldest wine route in Germany, the Deutsche Weinstrasse (German Wine Road) through the Pfalz (Palatinate) is considered by some historians to be the world's first route created for wine tourism.

After a record harvest in 1934, the Pfatz Wine Route was designed to connect vintner villages and boost regional wine sales. They even changed the names of existing roads along the route to incorporate this tourism distinction.

Beginning at the French border, it stretches through the middle of the Palatinate and runs northward to the house of the German Wine Route in Bockenheim. Located in the heart of Germany's warmest region, the route is popular in spring for its famous almond blossoms and in the fall for the bounty of produce sold at farm stands along the road.
