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 south 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. They can taste local wines and purchase food and drinks around the chapel. Different vendors sell almond products. The entertainment program includes live music. On Saturday the festival starts at 2 p.m. and on Sunday at noon.
