ROSA

Dear colleagues,

with the first days of March, winter is finally leaving and a great number of outdoor activities are waiting to be discovered. Enjoy the sun, warmer weather and welcome springtime in Germany!
 

Our region to discover in March is the Rhineland-Palatinate - while nature everywhere is still dressed in brown and grey, the landscape here is already transformed into an enchanting flower dress of pink and white. The arrival of the almond blossoms at the German Wine Route is a sure sign of spring – that is why we have chosen ROSÉ for our newsletter.
 

Nature awakens from its winter sleep and this is also the time for Easter, one of the oldest and most important festivals in Germany.
 

And of course when we hear “ROSÉ” we immediately think of a very fruity and light kind of wine produced in the Palatinate and in nearly every wine area in Germany – did you know that Rosé wine is made of red grapes which have a nearly colorless flesh like the white ones?
 

Enjoy spring with a nice glass of Rosé!
 

Cheers …

Welcome spring!

WELCOME TO THE LOVELY LANDSCAPE OF THE PALATINATE

Before we enter it, we start our journey in Mainz, the city of joie de vivre, famous for its cathedral and old town. The location on the Rhine and the proximity to the vineyards offer countless incentive possibilities on the water or in nature. There is also no shortage of a great number of conference and event facilities, just to name with the newly renovated “Rheingoldhalle”, the Kurfürstliches Schloss and many hotels in different categories.

LET’S START OUR WAY ALONG THE RHINE RIVER

Just a few steps away is the small town of Bingen, the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the southern end of the Rhine Gorge Valley – home of the Mouse Tower, good wine and St. Hildegard of Bingen.

From the banks of the Rhine, William Turner gazes into the "Bingen Loch" late in the afternoon of 25 August 1817. Follow in his footsteps on the "Turner" tour through the Middle Rhine Valley and let yourself be enchanted by the breathtaking nature

Located directly on the Rhine and with the edgy charm of Bingen's Winterhafen, the casual PAPA RHEINHotel & Spa is a combination of vintage design, good cuisine, a special spa, chic rooms and many excursion possibilities  in the surrounding area are just as much a part of it. Guest could enjoy the mix of soothing hours in the harbour spa and stiff breezes on the sometimes rough and sometimes sunny-hot cultural banks of the Rhine! 108 rooms + suites and modern meeting rooms are at the guest’s disposal.

When everything is still in grey colors elsewhere, the first signs of spring are starting to appear along the German Wine Route, spreading clouds of soft pink almond blossoms throughout the whole region.

The Palatinate wine region offers countless opportunities for interesting incentives – discovering romantic small villages and cities like Deidesheim, Freimsheim and Bad Dürkheim just to name a few – world famous historical sights like Hambach Castle towers over Neustadt, which has been considered the cradle of the German democracy movement.

For active incentives dragon boat races on the Rhine, Moselle, Nahe or Saar could be organized as well as winegrowers' Olympics and cycling rallies in the vineyards.

 

The stylish wine bars and casual vinotheques mix up the wine and culinary scene in the Palatinate. They offer wine tastings and guest could enjoy culinary delights in restaurants that are known far beyond their borders.

Tip – Seezeitlodge Hotel & Spa

RELAX AT THE BOSTALSEE

For those who will combine action with wellness and business our recommendation a few steps to the south in the middle of the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park is the Seezeitlodge -  a wellness resort with 98 rooms and suites and 2.700 m2 spa in the midst of less rough more gentle nature - located directly at the Bostalsee - a natural place of power, integrated into the surrounding low mountain landscape and closely linked to the regional cultural history.

German Easter traditions

Who hides the nests with the Easter eggs at Easter Sunday? Of course: the Easter bunny ;) Where does this custom come from?

 

We all loved blowing out and painting eggs as children. Traditionally, the eggs are then hidden in the garden and searched for. These traditions and customs are quite old. The Easter bunny was invented to explain how the eggs got into the nests: rabbits hop so nimbly that you can't see them well.

 

Most of all is the Easter Weekend family-time – so we wish you a happy Easter time - enjoy it with your loved ones.
