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.

Moving history

Richard the Lionheart’s captivity in the German Empire is one of the best known events of the European Middle Ages: an emperor holds a king captive, imprisoned in Trifels Castle, and demands that he pay a huge ransom – a scenario that has provided the backdrop to many a novel and legend. Trifels Castle commemorates  this significant event with a special presentation between 20 May 2017 and 18 April 2018. In addition, the major exhibition ‘Richard the Lionheart’ will open at the Historical Museum of the Palatinate in Speyer on 17 September 2017, which may be visited until 15 April 2018.
