It is an area rich in diversity, as attractive and varied as the people who live here. Andernach, Boppard, Koblenz, Mainz (the state’s Capital), Speyer (very beautiful!), Trier (Germany’s oldest city), and Worms are all well-known and count to the oldest German cities.

These cities have many remainder from Roman times, as well as wonderfully well-preserved construction and monuments from later generations. A lot of the chronological buildings are not only visual splendors; they are also brought to life by a diversity of artistic events.

Rhineland-Palatinate is an authentic treasure trove of the past. There are many famous historical stories about imposing castles, famous cathedrals and atmospheric abbeys.

The major axis of the state is the Rhine river, which forms the border to Baden-Württemberg and Hesse (Hessen) in the east before running across the northern part of the state. The Rhine Valley is surrounded by numerous mountain chains. It forms charming scenery containing some of the most historically important locations.

Rhineland-Palatinate offers many free time activities like cycling, walking, hot-air ballooning and golf. It also has an energetic artistic scene, with first-class art and culture as well as conventional local fairs and wine fairs.

The Diocesan Museum situated near Martinsdom in Mainz certainly counts to the state’s major sites. This famous museum has a revolving collection of spiritual art and a delightful courtyard.

And the Palatinate Forest Nature Reserve is considered one of the largest forest regions of Germany. The extraordinary nature and prettiness of this region is mainly due to its great spread of its forest itself, sure, but also to the reality that it is a high ground region.

There are also many delightful Boutique Hotels like Golf, Mansion, Castle, Wellness, Vineyard and 4 Star Hotels.
