After the successful culinary hike in Rodenbach in September that saw about 10,000 visitors, organizers will offer their first spring culinary hike starting at 11 a.m. Saturday in Wolfstein.
The six-kilometer walk will lead through a nice landscape near Wolfstein. Several food and beverage stations will be placed along the panorama-route where hikers can enjoy traditional “pfälzisch” dishes, international specialties and wines from regional and French vintners.
Caterers will serve meat dumplings with sauce, chestnut and potato bratwurst, salmon smoked on a Finnish kota grill, flammkuchen and crepes.
Regional butchers will offer French red wine meat and original “Idar-Obersteiner” steaks.
Local tradesmen will open their shops longer than on regular Saturdays, so participants can combine the culinary hike with a shopping tour through Wolfstein. Children can have their faces painted and have fun on a jumping castle.
A traditional “Palatinate Evening” with musical entertainment will take place after the hike at 7 p.m. at Rathausplatz. The Gospel Friends from Reichenbach-Steegen will perform a gospel concert 7:30 p.m. in the protestant church.
Starting point of the hike is the Rathausplatz in the center of Wolfstein. For the GPS, type in: Im Tauchental 3, 67752 Wolfstein. The town is located on B270, north of Kreimbach-Kaulbach.
