Regions

Four of the regions in Rhineland-Palatinate have started to move towards accessible tourism and more are joining them all the time.

The Ahr Valley

The Ahr Valley is wild and romantic with dramatic cliffs, steep vineyards and forested slopes. It was the Romans who first recognised its quality as a prime wine-growing area and planted the first vines.
