The German Wine Route is one of the oldest touristic roads in Germany and runs through the Palatinate wine-growing region that is located in the eponymous region in the southeast of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The road is about 85 kilometres long and approximately aligned from south to north. It extends from the German Wine Gate in Schweigen-Rechtenbach on the French border to the House of the German Wine Route in Bockenheim on the periphery of the Rheinhessen region.
