Edenkoben

Adventure playground in the vineyards.

Edenkoben is a small town in the Palatinate region that has kept its tradition without being old-fashioned: Vineyards as far as the eye can see and the Palatinate Forest on the doorstep offer a range of options to experience the countryside. Heidelberg, Speyer and Worms are also close by for excursions.
