      Day 4: Worms – Deidesheim region, approx. 40-60 km

      You leave the cathedral-, Luther- and Nibelungen city of Worms and reach the famous Weinstraße. Apart from wine, exotic fruit such as lemons or figs grow here due to the mild climate. Here the sun shines for approx. 1500 hours per year. Daily destination is Bad Dürkheim with the Dürkheimer Giant Cask, as an alternative Deidesheim or Neustadt.

Stroll through the old city alleys in Neustadt or treat yourself to hearty Pfälzer cuisine in one of the restaurants. A signed cycle path leads through shady forest areas from Neustadt to Speyer. Speyer’s landmark is the Salian Imperial cathedral dating back to 1030, also UNESCO world heritage.
