Backpacking in the Palatinate – at first, backpacking evokes a notion of adventure, wilderness, and remoteness in distant countries. With its easily accessible hiking trails and cabins, Germany does not readily come to mind, and let alone the Palatinate.
Yet, seven camp sites have been opened along the Southern Wine Route and six in the Donnersberg and Lauter region. These camping sites, which can be used from April through October, officially allow you to spend a night in the Palatinate Forest Nature Park biosphere reserve. Not too far off the main trails, you will feel as if you are alone with deer and foxes in the wild.
