When we visited several of the small typical wine villages of southern Palatinate in between Neustadt (and der Weinstraße) and Landau, we also did a detour to see how we would like Gleisweiler. It turned out to become my most favourite village in this region.

It is cute, lovely, overgrown with plants and wine without being too pompous, it has a noble hidden elegance.
And... it is home to one of our German political veterans, one who was very muc polarising and aggressive in his political past as member of our right wing party, but one who is now one of our main antagonists of globalisation and very much liberal: Heiner Geissler. I hated him when I was young but since some time I realised what he stands for now and admire him very much for his very witty spirit and political and social engagement.
