Carlsberg is a very quiet, small forest community with a pleasant climate. A good base for hiking the impressive trail Weinsteig & 3Burgen trails. Also trips to Castle Pool Altleiningen, Waldschwimmbad Hettenleidelheim, the Eiswoog or Donnersberg, but also to the picturesque Wine Road - Bad Durkheim and Gruenstadt are not far away. My recommendation: Wine Road from Bockenheim to Bad Durkheim. Discover the & small wine villages. Pay a visit to the Donnersberg and & to Rockhausen or Meisenheim. Take the 3 Castles footpath. But there is so much more - also seasonal events, such as wine festivals, etc. This is not limited to the sausage market. Hope this is sufficient as a first suggestion. Regards, Helga Hoock

Hello, Carlsberg in the Palatinate is a small place. The houses are very spread out in all directions, into the forest. An ideal place for hiking. There are not really any sites, it's just a quiet tranquil place. It is very close to castles in Altleinigen and Neuleinigen, and it is not far from Hmbacher Castle. So the place is ideal for your vacation. Greetings, Gudrun Ganss

Carlsberg is a small village in the Palatinate Forest. The ruins in the neighboring village Altleiningen are interesting. This is also is a good starting point for hikes in the Palatinate Forest, or for exploring the surrounding areas such as the German Wine Route.

Travel Insider Tips for Carlsberg

Carlsberg Overview

The municipality lies at the north edge of the Palatinate Forest between the Haardt range in the south and the Autobahn A 6 in the north in the Leiningerland at an elevation of 285 m above sea level. Carlsberg belongs to the Verbandsgemeinde of Hettenleidelheim, whose seat is in the like-named municipality.

The outlying centre of Hertlingshausen lies in the northern Palatinate Forest and is crossed by the river Eckbach, which rises in the part of the municipal area known as Kleinfrankreich (“Little France”). Since Carlsberg is a scattered settlement, it is not possible to say where Hertlingshausen ends and the main centre begins.

More about the History of Carlsberg

In 1754, Carlsberg, originally a dispersed settlement, had its first documentary mention. Count Georg II of Leiningen had a new settlement laid out in a clearing in the early 18th century for Huguenots who had fled persecution, and in 1726 he named it after his son Georg Karl I August Ludwig of Leiningen-Westerburg-Neuleiningen.

Older than Carlsberg itself is its outlying centre of Hertlingshausen. As of 1160 there was an Augustinian convent in Hertlingshausen as a branch of the Höningen Monastery. This had its first documentary mention in 1212 as Hertingeshausen. After a great fire in 1460 and a sacking in 1520, the convent was forsaken. The local lore has it that the village of Hertlingshausen was built out of the convent’s stones in 1585.

After the Second World War, both Carlsberg and Hertlingshausen belonged to the now abolished district of Frankenthal (Landkreis Frankenthal). In the course of administrative reform in Rhineland-Palatinate, Hertlingshausen was amalgamated with Carlsberg on 7 June 1969 and the new, merged municipality was at the same time put in the newly formed district of Bad Dürkheim (Landkreis Bad Dürkheim). In 1972, Carlsberg was grouped into the new Verbandsgemeinde of Hettenleidelheim. Hertlingshausen’s old coat of arms also became Carlsberg’s.
