Long Description:
Das bekannte Deutsche Weintor (siehe Waymark WMM8CN) markiert den Beginn der Deutschen Weinstraße. Dieser Holzprototyp wurde zur Eröffnung 1935 verwendet, weil das gegenwärtige steinerne Denkmal noch nicht fertig war. Nachdem dessen Fertigstellung 1936 wurde der Holzprototyp nicht mehr benötigt. Seit 1969 ist der Holzprototyp Teil des ersten Weinlehrpfades der Welt in Schweigen-Rechtenbach als eines von vielen historischen Stücken entlang eines 3km langes Weges durch die Weinberge.

The national monument "Deutsches Weintor" (German Wine Gate, see waymark WMM8CN) marked the beginning of the German Wine Route. This wooded prototype was used in 1935 when the route was opened, because there was no time to finish the real monument out of stones. After the stone monument has been finsihed in 1936 the wooden prototyp was removed. Starting 1969 the prototype is part of the first educational trail about vineyards worldwide. The trail is 3 km long and accessible. There are info signs, sculptures and educational vineyards to learn about winegrowing. The trail was opened in 1969.
Type: Triumphal (Monument/Memorial)

Subtype: Municipal/Regional Entrance

Location: Part of the first educational trail across the vineyards worldwide.
