Stunning
Sep 2020
This area is romantic, scenic, historic, relaxed and has a few of the cutest towns and splendid panoramas. Highlights for us were Traben-Trarbach, Bernkastel, Burg Eltz and Cochem.

Paradise for white wine lovers - and everyone else
Aug 2020
Mosel is a river and a district in Germany - and a must-see if you love high quality white wines.

Moseltal or Mosel Valley is a beautiful area with fine old cities. You should at least visit Bernkastel-Kues, Cochem, Zell and Traben-Trarbach.

There are many ways to do Mosel Valley: By car, by bike (also electrified), by foot (many, many fine trekking paths) and by boat (eat, drink, sleep on board).

Most important is tasting the fine wines of Mosel. Most famous grape is Riesling, but also try Weisser Burgunder and Grauer Burgunder. If you fancy the elegant sweet dessert wine, try auslese and beerenauslese.

In every little city you’ll find signs on houses saying: Weingut (vineyard). Here you can often try wine for free. ‘Probe’ or ‘probieren’ means try. ‘Verkauf’ means for sale. Of course the nice people of Mosel hope that you buy a bottle or two when you have tried their wines for free - but you don’t have to buy.

Foodies will love Mosel Valley, too. Best restaurant in the area is Restaurant Schantz (2 Michelin stars). Book at least one month in advance to be sure. Prices are reasonable considering that the chef is a genious.

Best wines - in Restaurant Schantz and in the Mosel Valley as such - comes from Weingut Peter Lauer. World class!

Well worth a leisurely drive

Enjoy the views of this beautiful river, flanked by rolling hills covered in vineyards. The road follows the river for miles and there are plenty of places to stop and just watch the world pass by.

So beautiful.
Jul 2020
I visited the Moselle and Bernkastel – Kues almost 40 years ago.
Not much has changed - it's still a great experience to drive along the river while the vineyards fill the mountainside - sometimes on both sides of the river.
Next time I will do it by bike.

A new area and delightful.
Dec 2019
Mosel valley for Christmas was a new experience and we certainly enjoyed the experience from architecture to vinyards to towns and the city of Trier. If you go by coach, train, boat or car then you will find lots of excuses to stop and even more excuse to move on to discover somewhere interesting and another gem.
Delightful area with a daily surprise. Well worth the trip.

Visit by car
Dec 2019
We have visited towns along the Mosel before by train, this year we rented a car and it was so much nicer. We would drive along the river stopping often for photos and then in small towns for a coffee or a glass of wonderful wine. I think our next visit here will be a fall trip.

The little town of Cochem is a gem
Sep 2019
We had the pleasure of visiting the little town of Cochem was a beautiful place along both sides of the river. There are many little shops and restaurants to visit. I get the impression they cater to the cruise boats that travel the Mosel. We saw at least one of the river cruise boats. We selected a restaurant with a view; the food was fine but not outstanding. The service was ok, but not great. We didn't have time that day to walk up to the castle, but that looks like a beautiful view.

Lovely holiday area
Sep 2019 • Couples
The Mosel valley is a lovely holiday destination. There is so much to see and do. The landscape is stunning with the vineyards, mountains and forests dotted with beautiful quaint towns & villages.
The oldest city in Germany, Trier is on your door step too.

Beautiful Green Valley
Sep 2019 • Friends
We enjoyed a river cruise that went down and back up the Mosel visiting three towns. The Mosel is beautiful with vineyards all along the steep slopes. The little towns you pass are charming. The river is very calm and there are paths along the river that are flat and great for riding bikes

Stunning Mosel
Jun 2019 • Friends
Bernkastel kues is a beautiful place to visit in the heart of the Mosel valley. A tourist hot-spot, in the evening the town settlers down and it is delightful to have a meal / drink in the friendly restaurants and bars. There is a small supermarket in bernkastel. We rented a house freinhause alina perfect accommodation with a garage for our motorcycles. Across the the bridge into Kues there is an Alidi and lidl. The days we decided not to ride our motorcycles a trip on a river boat is very enjoyable they are spotless. We must like the Mosel as this was our fourth motorcycle trip to the region. The Mosel has something for young and old alike hire cycles or if you like walking it's perfect. The cycle ways are flat before you know it you have travelled a few miles and then time for lunch or a glass of superb wine in the many eateries along the river.
