A wine festival is held in Bernkastel in the first week of September each year, including fireworks and the crowning of a wine queen.
Another attraction to visit during your stay at Mosel accommodation is the city of Trier, which boasts many Roman antiquities. Among the main sights here are the Porta Nigra gate and Europe's largest Roman baths. Famous castles in the Mosel area include the Reichsburg, towering over the town of Cochem, and Eltz Castle, which can be reached from either Trier or Koblenz, another old city full of history. It's possible to take English-language tours at Eltz, where gold and silver treasures are on display as well as ancient weapons.
During your stay at holiday apartments in Mosel, walking along the river banks will enable you to discover some of the villages of the area. Another good way to explore the region is to take a boat trip, starting from either Trier or Bernkastel. Choose from an hour-long mini-cruise or a longer journey, and relax amid the Mosel scenery.
