With the arrival of springtime all the almond trees at the German Wine Street come into blossom. The quaint village of Gleiszellen-Gleishorbach located in the southern part of the German Wine Street celebrates its annual almond blossom festival. The landscape appears to be colored rose and pink and creates a wonderful atmosphere. From March 1 until end of April many castles and historical buildings in the wine region will be illuminated by pink spotlights at nightfall. The venue of the almond blossom festival is at the Baroque Dionysius Chapel. Visitors can hike along the Palatinate Almond Path. Local wines, food and beverages are offered around the chapel. Different vendors sell almond products. The entertainment program includes live music. The festival starts at 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
