Spring is a beautiful time for walking and discovering Germany’s romantic wine villages and wineries.  And, for those who would like to combine a weekend of walking and wine-tasting in Germany, the Wine Walking Weekend is ideal.

Wine and Walking Weekend – April 2012

Germany‘s fourth Wine and Walking Weekend (WeinWanderWochenende) is scheduled for the weekend of April 28 and 29 and offers visitors more than 100 themed activities – including wine tasting with llamas?

During the Wine Walking Weekend, keen walkers (and drinkers) throughout the country will set off across meadows and fields, stopping only to sample the wine.

Many of the walks are accompanied by expert guides and lead to Roman forts and through herb gardens along the famous German wine routes. Along the way, walkers can also sample some culinary delights – the choice ranges from hearty regional fare to five-course gourmet meals.

A number of the trails also take walkers through wine-growing villages and wineries to traditional wine festivals. Not to be missed: along the narrow River Ahr in Rhineland-Palatinate, groups can even be led along by llamas!

The good news is that on the Wine Walking Weekend, there is no problem with drink-driving!

    I love all of Germany’s wine and walking self guided tours, but I wasn’t aware that there was a weekend for it. Too bad I’m on crutches at the moment, as this sounds like a lot of fun.
