The trail covers 6.9 km (shortcuts are possible) through the vineyards with around 70 stops where you can learn interesting facts about wine, grape varieties, geology, climate, history, the local way of life and the flora and fauna of the Bergstrasse.
The Bergsträßer Winzer association organises guided tours with tastings of Bergstrasse wine in the vineyards and offers you a hands-on wine experience. You can also enjoy this type of experience on geodiscovery & pleasure hikes with Geopark rangers.
This joint project turns hiking into a real experience. It is a wine hike that is co-organised by the fruit, gardening and winegrowers’ association Heidelberg-Rohrbach and the Bergstraße-Odenwald UNESCO Global Geopark, with support from the city of Heidelberg. Over 40 information boards in the vineyards present facts worth knowing about wine, grape varieties, geology, climate, history and the local way of life as well as local plants and animals along the roughly 8km trail.
Large annual wine hike, with catering
A large number of guided tours every year: “Wine and geology” or “Wild herbs in the vineyard”
