Located in the south west of Germany and blessed with a mild climate thanks to the Rhine and Moselle rivers, the Romantic Cities of Trier, Koblenz, Mainz, Speyer, Worms, Idar-Oberstein and Neustadt/Weinstraße appeal to visitors with their perfect combination of experiencing cities and nature. They are the major tourist cities in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate. Their proximity to major airports like Frankfurt, Cologne/Bonn, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden or Stuttgart make them a perfect short break destination with a good value for money.

Four thematic areas have been defined as our core competence based on our market research and on Rhineland-Palatinate's existing tourism potential.
Rhineland-Palatinate's marketing themes are Discover nature, Culture and events, Wonderful wine and Well-being. These themes are expanded into product lines:
Hiking: Rhineland-Palatinate disposes of numerous and outstanding long-distance walking trails.
Cycling: Rhineland-Palatinate is also an excellent cycling region with a wide variety of well-signposted routes.
Wonderful wine - 70% of German wines are produced in Rhineland-Palatinate's six winegrowing areas. Wine is the lifeblood of Rhineland-Palatinate and its tourism industry
Our product lines are designed around the unique selling propositions that distinguish us from our competitors.
RPT uses the classical three-pronged approach - marketing, sales and press relations - to promote its product lines. This is reflected in its organisational structure.
RPT works closely with its stakeholders, the tourism regions, the Rhineland-Palatinate hotel and restaurant association and the chambers of industry and commerce.
