Visit of ‚Villa Ludwigshöhe‘

Villa Ludwigshöhe is a former summer residence of Ludwig I of Bavaria located next to Edenkoben and Rhodt unter Rietburg in Rhineland-Palatinate. This small palace built in 1846 was constructed in Italien style and offers an impressive view over the Upper Rhine Plain. Since 1975 the Max-Slevogt-Gallery of the State Museum Mainz is located in the upper floor. This permanent exhibition presents more than 100 artworks of Max Slevogt (1868 – 1932) one of the leading representatives of Impressionism in Germany. For more information please visit the official Homepage.

A guided tour through the historical rooms of the villa will be offered and the exhibition of Max Slevogt 'Berlin impressionism – works from the Berlin secession' can be visited.


Wine tasting and dinner

A wine tasting of regional Palatinate wines followed by a dinner with regional specialties will be offered in the ‘Landhaus Wilker’. This winery is embedded in a picturesque setting between gentle hills, vinyards and the Palatinate Forest.
