Meet the Moselle, the Rhine's peaceful little sister. The Moselle meanders from sleepy village to village, offering views of fairytale castles, ruins of ancient fortresses, and rows of lush vines that produce the region’s famed Riesling; where buildings have colourful flair, houses are half-timbered, and streets are twisted and winding. A trip down the Moselle takes you up close to the quaint countryside towns of France, Germany and Luxembourg, where buildings have colourful flair, houses are half-timbered, and streets are twisted and winding.
In the picturesque town of Cochem you’ll find Reichsburg Castle, sitting pretty, high on a hill offering breathtaking views of the town and river valley below.
The charming wine village of Bernkastel is a must-see along the Moselle, with its medieval marketplace and pretty 17th century gabled timber-framed houses.
At 16,000 years, Trier is Germany’s oldest city with an array of ancient Roman artifacts, as well as eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the impressive Porta Nigra gate.
