Picturesque road-trip in between the Hilltop Castles, White wine testing and steep vineyards growing on the flank of the Moselle River
The Moselle “twists and turns its way between Trier and Koblenz along one of Germany’s most beautiful river valleys.”
It flows through a region that has been influenced by mankind since it was first cultivated by the Romans. Today, its hillsides are covered by terraced vineyards where “some of the best Rieslings grow”, and numerous ruined castles dominate the hilltops above wine villages and towns that line the riverbanks.
Traben-Trarbach with its art nouveau architecture and Bernkastel-Kues with its traditional market square are two of the many tourist attractions on the Moselle river.
