The Romantic Cities mobilise/move you

Rich culture within easy reach, culinary temptations at almost every corner, quiet but not slumbering: the Romantic Cities in Rhineland-Palatinate are well worth a visit! Centrally located in Germany and therefore ideally connected, these diverse cities are affordable destinations for short trips. They are also the perfect point of departure for journeys to popular neighbouring regions such as the Black Forest, Alsace or Luxembourg. The Almond Blossom Festival in Neustadt-Gimmeldingen, located on the German Wine Route, which traditionally opens the wine-festival season, always attracts many people to the cities between the Rhine and the Moselle. Their close proximity to the birthplace of the bicycle in 1817 makes the Romantic Cities the perfect location for celebrating the 200th anniversary with enjoyable themed trips. So, as Goethe said so well in Götz von Berlichingen, “On to Speyer!” where the Palatinate starts to resemble Italy and where an eventful round trip characterised by Mediterranean charm can begin.


The world-famous Deutsches Eck, the spectacular cable car up to Ehrenbreitstein  Fortress, and home to one of the most popular youth hostels in Germany, Koblenz is not only a popular destination for many river cruise ships, but also a meeting place for many cycling enthusiasts. It is where two of the country’s major cycling routes, the Moselle and the Rhine cycle routes, intersect. Bikes are therefore the ideal way to discover the city. Why not rent an e-bike? There are plenty of rental stations. ‘Weindorf’, an establishment on the idyllic banks of the Rhine erected on the occasion of Rhineland’s  1,000th anniversary, is an ideal place to relax. ‘Tal toTal ’, the cycling event par excellence, will take place on the 25 June. The Middle Rhine Valley will be a car-free zone starting from Stolzenfels in Koblenz. Summer is a time for cultural indulgence, particularly the ‘Horizonte’ world culture festival (14–16 July), the International Juggler and Cabaret Festival (28–30 July) and the great Koblenz summer festival culminating in the Rhein in Flammen (11–13 August).
