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 city of Luther and the Nibelungs is again an attraction for real culture lovers from the 4–20 August. In its third year under the direction of Nico Hofmann, the winner of the International Emmy in 2014, the Nibelung Festival will again feature a premiere on the spectacular open-air stage in front of the Worms cathedral in 2017. Performances will once more be held on the west side, the first time since 2013. The Nibelungen-Bierradtour (Nibelung beer cycling tour) is just the thing for anyone wishing to experience the Nibelung myth from a somewhat different perspective. The tour travels from Speyer to Worms and is part of the Electoral Palatinate Beer Route established in 2011. The route comprises 23 breweries, from Neustadt an der Weinstraße to the northernmost point of Worms. You should also already note down the 1–3 June 2018, during which Worms will briefly oust Mainz as capital of Rhineland-Palatinate, since it will be hosting Rhineland-Palatinate Day, the major state festival.
