The Moselle Valley: between vineyards and knights' castles

The Moselle Valley is the oldest wine-growing region in Germany and a diverse recreational area that offers something for every taste.

When travelling along the Moselle Wine Route, visitors should definitely stop off at one of the nearby castles, many of which even host banquets and offer accommodation. You can enjoy exquisite wines in the idyllic wine-growing areas – the region's winemakers have been taking the top spots in national and international rankings for years.

Visitors can also experience something extra special in the Moselle Valley on a riverboat cruise – which snakes its way through meandering bends to the Deutsches Eck, where the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet – and enjoy gorgeous views of the forests and castles in the adjacent mountains.

They can also explore the Moselle Valley on foot or by bike and be spoiled for choice with the vast amount of routes, ranging from leisurely to challenging, all full of natural wonders.
