The “Bergstraße”

"This is where Germany begins to become Italy," Emperor Joseph II is said to have said. proclaimed in the spring of 1764 during a visit to the Bergstrasse. The climate of the Bergstrasse, which is protected by the Odenwald from the cold east winds, is extremely mild and ensures temperatures above the national average. Visible signs are the many plants like z. B. Almonds, peaches and apricots, which are normally native to southern Europe, and of course the wine, which ripens to the well-known quality through around 1,600 hours of sunshine. While elsewhere snow and cold and wet weather still prevail, spring sometimes turns the mountain road into a colourful bouquet of flowers as early as mid-March.

But it is not only the spring blossom that invites you to linger: numerous sights such as historic market places, half-timbered houses, castles and palaces as well as a rich cultural offer make the Bergstrasse worth experiencing. Theatre, international variety and cabaret stages offer a wide variety of performances.
