A special feature among the vineyard cottages, which served as shelters for farmers and winegrowers throughout Rheinhessen, are the trulli. Like white sugar loaves, they shine between the rows of vines. Three of them can be found in the region around Flonheim. The name comes from the roundhouses that are mainly found in Apulia/Italy. In our region they were built in the 18th century as shelters in the vineyards, although there is no historical evidence as to whether the round houses from Puglia served as a model or not. One of the most beautiful trulli stands in Flonheim on the Adelberg. You can reach it on foot via the "Hiwweltour Aulheimer Tal", a beautiful round walk with beautiful views and resting places, one of them - with tables and benches - directly at the trullo. Should bad weather come up, you will still find a safe shelter in the Trullo.
