Popular destinations in the Palatinate Forest are not only the numerous, impressive ruins of castles – the famous Hambach Castle is only a 25 minute walk away. Thanks to many managed huts, you can also get by on long hikes with light luggage. Equally popular are mountain bike and bicycle tours, either sporty through the Palatinate Forest or rather comfortably along the "Radwanderweg Deutsche Weinstraße".
