Sip wine and marvel at half-timbered houses in Deidesheim
Deidesheim is a quaint Palatine town filled with cozy alleyways, fairy-tale half-timbered houses and taverns serving delectable wines.
Nestled in the heart of the Palatinate with an excellent view of the Palatine Forest, Deidesheim has a highly regarded reputation among wine connoisseurs. Former Chancellor Helmut Kohl often took Bill Clinton and other state guests to Deidesheimer Hof, located across from the old Town Hall. The proprietor has countless pictures of the distinguished patrons who frequented his establishment. Visit the restaurant "Zum Woibauer", and you can sip wines made from grapes grown in the owner's vineyard.
The Museum for Wine Culture, located in the old Town Hall, highlights the cultural heritage of Deidesheim's much-heralded wine, including Riesling and Müller-Thurgau. Business travelers and guests at the elegant Steigenberger Hotel Deidesheim can see wine-growing traditions in action as they walk down streets lined with palm trees and oleander in front of half-timbered houses.
