Oppenheim is slightly off the beaten path, making it an ideal destination if you’re looking to avoid the hordes of tourists that often descend on the Wine Road in mid-summer.
The Katharinenkirche is the obvious crown of Oppenheim, but the picturesque Altstadt also hides a mysterious gem: the Oppenheimer Kellerlabyrinth, a 40-km, five-level-deep, underground passageway system. Tours cost €7.50; contact the Oppenheim Tourist Office in advance for tickets.
