Summer in the Bergstrasse begins a little earlier than in the rest of the region. The mild climate even allows almonds and peaches to grow here. However, the region is most famous for its wine, which you can sample along the 83-kilometre route between Heidelberg and Darmstadt. You shouldn't miss out on the opportunity to try the historical Red Riesling grape variety. It's also worth visiting the towns and villages that line up along the route like pearls on a chain. They're home to a whole host of cultural and historical attractions. Luggage transfers are available.
