Special supplements

As the most widely distributed daily newspaper in the region, "Die Rheinpfalz" is an important media partner and member of the ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz [FutureRegion West Palatinate]. Since mid-2013, three times a year, there has been an extensive special supplement in the "Rheinpfalz" which, with its edition of 72,500 copies, reaches a large majority of households in the region. In the special edition, current projects are shown and new members of the organisation are introduced.



The cities and regions of the state present themselves at the annual Rheinland-Pfalz-Tag. In recent years, West Palatinate communities were hosts of the state festival twice: the city of Pirmasens in 2013 (21-23 June 2013) and the district administration of Ramstein-Miesenbach in 2015 (26-28 June 2015).


West Palatinate image brochure

The West Palatinate is a region with a high quality of life, open and friendly people, innovative businesses and renowned research institutes – a region with a lot of potential. But that is hardly known in other regions. Even those who live in the West Palatinate aren't aware of it.

With the image brochure, this potential is made clear and people – from the region and those from outside of it – made aware of it. The West Palatinate is shown in a 17-page brochure, including all of its facets, lots of interesting information and fantastic photos.


Expo Real

Every year, cities and regions from all over Europe present themselves at Europe's largest real estate fair, Expo Real in Munich. Our neighbouring region, Rhine-Neckar, has been represented for years with a large stand, as has been the city of Mainz. In 2015, the region of West Palatinate was finally represented for the first time. As a key region, it was a focus of Rhineland Palatinate's presence at the fair, at the invitation of the Wirtschaftsministerium [Ministry of Economics].


Schule 4.0

"Schule 4.0 - Vernetzung ist Zukunft" ["School 4.0 - Networking is the future"] is the name of a project that will establish a new type of teaching in the final years of school at the Hofenfels Gymnasium [Secondary School] in Zweibrücken. With tablets and the use of modern media, the school pupils should be better prepared for the demands in the age of digitalisation. Traditional teaching materials are supplemented and rounded out with iPads. That is how the youth of today will be made fit for tomorrow.


Pro Fachkraft Pirmasens

The project Pro Fachkraft [Pro Skilled Workers] examined the question of what requirements (future) workers had for their employers and how satisfied the employees of six selected businesses were with their employer. On the basis of talks with businesses, schools and universities of applied sciences in the region, management developed a model for an evaluation system for attractive employers. At the end of the project, the Pro Fachkraft seal of approval was granted to the participating businesses.
