Ruppertsberg

The sea of grapes around Ruppertsberg

Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg lie side by side in front of the slopes of the Palatinate Haardt. If you look down over the communities, you can see a pavilion right on their fringes. A winegrower built this “Teahouse” in 1840, so that he could enjoy the view of the precious vineyards and the village. Today, Ruppertsberg is a highly renowned wine community whose ambitious winegrowers bring out the best in such privileged appellations as Linsenbusch, Hoheburg, Gaisböhl, Nußbien, Spieß and Reiterpfad. The predominant vines grown on the 400 hectares of stony, sandy, loamy and loess soils are Rieslings, Portuguese vines and Gewürztraminer. Walking through the peaceful streets and alleys of the village, you will pass sandstone and half-timbered houses. Their vine-covered fronts and archways and the village’s charming Haardt vineyard surroundings make it a popular destination. However, this well-known tourist resort is also loved for its excellent cuisine. Homely inns, romantic wine taverns and wine cellars full of atmosphere offer Palatinate specialties and more. Ruppertsberg does not just bustle with life during the Fischerfest on the first weekend of May. The wine fair on the last weekend of August and the following grape harvest period attract lots of cheerful visitors too. Apart from its high-class wines, Ruppertsberg is also renowned within Germany for an event attended by thousands of people early each spring. The Ruppertsberg Easter Egg Shoot, during which about 60,000 colorful eggs ‘change owners,’ is the longest-established event of its kind in Germany.
