Staying at holiday apartments in Mosel gives the perfect opportunity to get away from it all in one of Germany's most beautiful areas. Castles, vineyards and quaint old towns are among the many attractions of this romantic river valley.
The steep banks of the river are covered in vineyards, and tasting the famous Riesling white wines while staying in Mosel accommodation is a must. You can sample many varieties on a visit to the Mosel Wine Museum in Bernkastel-Kues, before exploring the town's medieval marketplace. 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.
