"Edenkoben, a Palatinate Wine Town" Edenkoben by Kathrin_E

Edenkoben Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 148 photos

This is the typical landscape of the wine region: rolling hills covered in vineyards at the foot of the Palatinate Forest. Even the Bavarian King Ludwig I loved this place so much that he built his summer villa here.

The picture on the left shows the ideal local couple in front of their house... Most houses, wineries or not, have those large arched gates that lead into the yard. A vine climbing the wall is also a typical addition. The dress code, at least for the women, is a bit different nowadays. The men still wear jeans and shirts and caps (or, alternatively, the green-khaki variety of work clothes most farmers have) but the women have abandoned the long dresses and white aprons and wear more practical clothing.

Anyway, I found this a cute picture to describe the spirit of Edenkoben even if it is a bit kitschy and folcloristic. This is my favourite among the many painted distributor boxes in the village.

Edenkoben is one of the many pretty wine towns and villages along the German Wine Road at the foot of the Palatinate Forest. The streets of the town have those arches across, overgrown by vines. The town is surrounded by vineyards and there is a vineyard even in the middle of the settlement.
