Palatia Jazz goes into its 22nd year in 2018. Hard to believe that it’s been this long. And congratulations! The fact that internationally known acts, with a focus on Europe, play in various cities and breathtakingly beautiful locations in the hearty Pfalz region, seems like a hot recipe. If you plan to visit, don’t forget to indulge in the luscious wines – not only the Rieslings are world-famous.
