Above ground, visitors can discover façades decorated with grapes and other motifs around the town. The elegantly decorated houses are testimony to the affluence of the town, although one man was largely responsible for the way that Traben-Trarbach looks today.

You can join art nouveau tours to find out more. Some of the buildings are even open for overnight guests. One of them is the hotel ‘Bellevue’ right on the river bank, which was designed by Bruno Möhring, who was also responsible for the art nouveau interior design. The architect also designed an extension to the spa building in Bad Wildstein. The renovated complex is now home to the Hotel Parkschlösschen, a leading centre for ayurvedic spa that attracts visitors from far and wide, just as the Ockerquelle once did.
