"DURLACH: Walk with a View in the Vineyards" Top 5 Page for this destination Durlach Tip by Kathrin_E

Durlach, Karlsruhe: 22 reviews and 79 photos

The Southern slope of Turmberg is planted with vineyards. Merely by coincidence I discovered today that there are two paths that lead through these vineyards, one along its upper edge between vines and forest, and another about halfway up. The vineyards themselves are fenced off but these paths can be walked. It was a golden October day and the colours of the leaves and the sunshine were glorious.

From the vineyards you have a view over Durlach and the city centre of Karlsruhe in the distance, and, depending on weather conditions (it was a bit hazy today) over the Rhine plain to the Palatinate Forest and Vosges.

To find these paths, all it takes is walking from Turmberg tower down one of the forest trails and keeping left at the end of the forest, or walking uphill from the residential quarter at the foor of Turmberg in the small side valley.

By the way - the grapes of Turmberg are processed by the State Winery Karlsruhe-Durlach in Posseltstraße, right at the foot of the vineyard.
