The Cultivation Area at the Kirchenberg - A Tourist Attraction

Since the land division procedure was set up, the area at the Kirchenberg, which comprises about 12 hectares, has become an attraction for tourists.

The project aims to preserve the natural cultivation area by combining agricultural utilization with environmental conservation. Thanks to the project, it was possible to create a lasting habitat for numerous plants and animals, of which some are actually very rare. So far, the project has introduced a large number of improvements. New ramps and paths have been laid out, thickets have been removed, and forest trees, which had spread out over the course of the years, have been partially cut down. Furthermore, vineyard terraces have been uncovered, dry stone walls have been repaired, and vineyards and meadows scattered with fruit trees have been set up.

These improvements have also made the area more appealing to hikers, tourists and nature lovers again. Due to their location, the vineyards can only be used intensively and agricultural machines can only be used in a very restricted way there. Interested tourists, however, are now able to watch the traditional manual work of the winegrowers in the vineyards. That is why the Kirchenberg is also considered as a “branch office” of the Museum of Wine Culture, which illustrates the manifold cultural aspects of winegrowing. Therefore, aside from getting to know the theoretical background in the museum, visitors can gain insight into practical winegrowing and environmental conservation on site. This opportunity is unique in the Rhineland-Palatinate.
