Trip to Palatinate with a friend and his Mercedes S-Class - true first-class service

The Palatinate region offers charming landscapes, hospitality and many sights. The right tour for people who want to be off the beaten track and who love the individual experience. Palatinate is also famous for its white "Riesling" wine and therefore a wine tasting in one of the many wineries is almost a must.<br>The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice.<br>The stops mentioned under "Itinerary" are possible destinations of our tour. I am more than happy to compose an individual tour, which is based entirely on your preferences and wishes.<br>I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time.<br>You will be chauffeured in a Mercedes S-Class, virtually a private jet for the road, equipped with all state-of-the-art features.

We took a very brief sidetrip thru Speyer and I had read about this on the way but did not put on our short itinerary. We were headed back to our car and quite literally just came upon the entrance and decided to go in. So glad we did! This is a comprehensive, albeit brief, exhibit with a lot of information about the site and also the tumultuous (and sad) history of the Jews in Speyer. The ancient sites - especially the bathhouse - were very interesting.

With the oldest mikvah north of the Alps it is a must. The women's and men's walls and walking down into the mikvah from ground level is impressive.

We were staying in Mannheim for a few days and intentionally put Speyer on our list as a day trip. We wanted to see this medieval find- a synagogue and steps down to a ritual bath that was used by the women as early as the 13th century. The museum is small and interesting but its really the ruins outside you want to see. Its also here where displays tell you about the Jewish history in this area, how the synagogue was used. It was interesting to see the holes that were built into the walls so that women could hear the prayers by standing near these holes. Best of all though is taking the stairs down to the mikvah - ritual bath- where cold water is still there. Very interesting and worth the dash from the rain.

Judenhof is one of the most important Jewish medieval sites in Germany. Highlights of this site include a 13th century women's section, a Mikvah (ritual bath at ground level), and a small museum. This Jewish Community, population estimated between 300-400 people, existed in Speyer until the 16th century, but it is unknown why the community disbanded. If you are planning to visit Speyer, I highly recommend visiting Judenhof. It is a very important historical site.

This is a fascinating view of Jews in this town since 1104 (yes, almost 1,000 years). There are remains of a synagogue wall, a well preserved mikva (ritual bath) and many displays, along with video in German, English and as I recall, French. Very strongly recommended to help visitors understand experiences of Jewish people in this small town. It is located 1 block from the main street on a street that is parallel to the main street). Very modest cost (3 Euros per person). If this is useful, please indicate so below.
