Holidays in the Moselle region

One of Germany's most beautiful river valleys

Like a blue ribbon, the Moselle twists and turns its way between Trier and Koblenz along one of Germany's most beautiful river valleys. The Moselle flows through a region that has been shaped by man for over 2,000 years, ever since it was first cultivated by the Romans. At some places the terraced vineyards seem to rise up almost to the sky. Some of the best Rieslings grow here. A myriad of castles towering over romantic wine villages line the banks of the river. Traben-Trarbach with its impressive art-nouveau architecture and Bernkastel-Kues with its lovely market square are just two of the many unmissable places on the Moselle.

Hiking on the Moselsteig trail

Graded long-distance hiking trail in the Moselle region

In the picturesque river landscape of the Moselle and the nearby Eifel and Hunsrück hills, there are numerous new top-quality hiking trails. Special mention should be made of the Moselsteig trail, which has enriched the Moselle hiking landscape since April 2014. For day walks and short walks through this unique wine-growing and cultural landscape there are the Traumschleifen ("dream walks") along the Lower Moselle and detours on to the Moselsteig trail – many different ways of discovering the Moselle region on foot.

Ancient meets modern on the Moselle

In our second-to-last video, Martin Seidler visits Roman Trier, the oldest city in Germany. The colourful red sandstone has dominated the look of the city since Roman times, although it is now mainly found in the foundations and catacombs underground. The Romans even introduced wine-making to the region, and the combination of slate and sandstone gives the Moselle wines their unique flavour. The Via mosel’ route takes you to wine estates and wine bars with interesting architecture, all set against the wonderful backdrop of the river.
