Tourists might think that Wörth am Rhein is only famous for being where all of the Mercedes-Benz trucks are put together, making it the biggest truck assembly line in all of Europe, but there are other things that bring in travelers to this area of Germany.
Right across the Rhine River from Karlsruhe, the first thing you will notice is how many trees there are in the city. That’s because the city itself was cut into the Bien Forest. This forest keeps the air clean and fresh. Plan on visiting the city in the summer months, because that’s when there are cultural programs at the Bien Forest Hall a.k.a. Bienwaldhalle.

There are two museums that many tourists come to when they visit Wörth am Rhein. The first one is the Heinrich von Zügel Museum in the Old Town Hall (Ludwigstraße 1), which is dedicated to the German painter with the same name. Why it is located here is a bit of a mystery, because he wasn’t born here, nor did he die here.
The second museum is the Heimatmuseum Laurentiushof or City Museum in the Büchelberg district (Dorfbrunnenstraße 34). If you are visiting friends or relatives, they will probably bring you here to show off their home town.
Those who want to see the more modern side of Wörth am Rhein should consider a trip to the Sculpture Garden. This garden was constructed in the year 2000 and is located in the Bürger Park.
If you’re here during the spring and summer months make sure to spend a day or two in the Badepark Wörth — an open air swimming pool park located in the Bienwald in the north-west of the town. (More than 10,000 visitors come here per day in the up season!)
Those who have a tickle in their throat should definitely stop in this city during the wine festival. This annual festival is usually held in July, so see if you can arrange to come during this time.
If you can’t come during their wine festival, just plan a trip to Germany’s wine country during this time — the Palatinate — and see the multitude of festivals that are held in countless other towns and villages.
