Savour the joys of nature

Arguably the best way to describe the Südpfalz is “between Rhine and vine”. Our landscape to the east is dominated by the Rhine and the primeval Rheinaue wetlands, the open meadows of the Bienwald Forest to the south are perfect for long rambles, while the vineyards and Palatinate Forest border the Südpfalz to the west. Around two thirds of the surface area in the district of Germersheim is under nature conservation. This unspoilt landscape is much prized by nature-loving tourists and is perfect for unwinding and for reviving tired spirits. Whether on foot or by bicycle, alone or as part of a group, why not come and discover the unique biodiversity that this region has to offer?

Holiday fun for all ages

Of course, there is more to the Südpfalz than just pure relaxation – in fact, there is a wide range of leisure activities to enjoy and places to visit. For instance, you can discover the exotic world of the ostrich at the Mhou ostrich farm in Rülzheim. Or swing through the trees in the FunForest adventure park in Kandel. You can be spirited away to the Ancient World by boarding a galley in the footsteps of a Roman legionnaire. Or you can take a refreshing dip in one of our swimming lakes or outside pools or water parks.
