In the picturesque village of Gimmeldingen, the convivial proprietor and wine devotee Bernd Hagedorn rents four spacious apartments with contemporary furnishings, Oriental rugs, and modern baths. Even if you're staying elsewhere, the restaurant ($–$$) is worth a visit. On a garden terrace edged by lemon trees, diners can sample from 30 Pfälzer wines by the glass (and 250 imported wines by the bottle). Rumpsteak (beef steak), served with tasty Bratkartoffeln
(home-fried potatoes), and Pfälzer Gyros (thin slices of beef topped with cheese and onions) are perennial favorites.
