economics and infrastructure


the economy are strongly coined/shaped of the viticulture and tourism. Thus givesit in Deidesheim some well-known and for their wines famous Weingüter. The wine situations around Deidesheim, like the Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten, the Deidesheimer piece of yard and the adjacent situations of Forster piece of church and Forster Ungeheuger enjoy world-wide a good reputation. The wine places Riesling is the usually cultivated vine. Beside that hotel Deidesheimer yard, there are five stars some further hotels, pensions and restaurants. The most well-known restaurants of Deidesheim are the “hotel to the can” from that 12. Century and the “black cock” in the Deidesheimer yard.

In the last years some private hospitals developedthe cosmetic surgery of the Deidesheimer of physician Dr. Arm and Herberger. A further private hospital of the RHM home for the elderly and group of hospitals, whose seat likewise is in Deidesheim, shows the growth of this industry lately. Also in Deidesheim kandierte fruits of the manufacturer Biffar are manufactured, those among lovers estimatedare. Industrielle plants gives it practically none. Exception formed the basalt work at the shrub way in the last century. Here was shipped the basalt stone diminished in the Forster pitch stone head on the course. Transport between the pitch stone head and the basalt plant was made from 1910 until 1970 by one Wire rope course, which fell in the eye.

By rationalization with the cultivation of the wine, the tourism became the largest employer in the last decades. Although many drive to their jobs into the close convenient Rhine Neckar metropolis, the number of jobs exceeds locally, those that in recent timeAuspendler. With 143.000 overnight accomodation in the year 1992 a past high point was measured. Up-to-date are available over 800 beds. The Weingüter profit like other industries from the tourism and offer by their romantic surrounding field to the guest the reason to come. Thus a successful symbiosis results.



of the Deidesheimer wine landowner Ludwig Andreas's Jordan was with others one floats Kraft with the realization of the railroad line (Pfälzi north course) between new city and bath Dürkheim. As the connection (later after Frankenthal, Worms) in the year 1865 in enterprise went, spoke the director of the plälzischen courses (Albert von Jäger) of a puzzling routing was extended. That was because of the fact that when planning always valuable area (vineyards) was taken consideration.

The goods traffic took an important position in the DeidesheimerStation. Like that 1890 Deidesheim were the largest receiver for fertilizer (stable fertilizer) in the Pfalz. Also coal was delivered in large quantities. At the same time wine and basalt were dispatched from here.

Starting from 1890 a local railway drove the 1911 from Ludwigshafen to THEN city , to Meckenheimone extended. A further extension to the Deidesheimer station would have been meaningful. Since in this time the cultivation of wine was however in a crisis, the wine landowners sträubten themselves against such plans. They had simply fear around the drift of their workers into the industry to Ludwigshafen.Also later efforts, the last around 1938 among mayors Friedrich Eckel Sellmayr did not lead no more to success.

The goods traffic by course continued to decrease in the years by always 1980 and was finally adjusted. A positive development could book in the last years however the passenger traffic.By the introduction of the Rhineland-Palatinate clock and the binding to the rapid-transit railway Rhine Neckar to new city the course is an alternative to the individual traffic.


Deidesheim becomes in north south direction of the B271, which pulled German crying race through. The high traffic increase in the latterFor decades and their process by the places and cities to the Haardt, made a new building inevitably. With in the year 2000 the opened B271neu, which Deidesheim at the eastern outskirts of a town touches, therefore the transit traffic reduced substantially. Further it offers a fast connection to A 65 (Ludwigshafen on the Rhine - Karlsruhe) and in opposite direction after bath Dürkheim.
