The vineyards provide the ideal growing environment for this coveted grape. However, there are not only countless cozy wine villages along the Moselle, but also gorgeous views, premium hiking trails, fairytale castles and much more. Discover the most beautiful sights along the Moselle!
Sights along the Moselle
The steep slopes are an unmistakable feature of the Lower Moselle near Winningen. Here you can find steep, terraced vineyards.

For the active, the Moselsteig awaits - an absolute highlight of the Mosel hiking trails.Learn more
The Moselle Bend
A particularly scenic part of the Moselle can be found around the picturesque Weindorf Bremm. In the middle of the steepest vineyard in Europe, the Calmont, an adventurous via ferrata beckons. Here, the dreamlike view of the Mosel loop is guaranteed!Learn more!
Castles Along the Moselle
In Rhineland-Palatinate alone there are around 1,100 castles and the Moselle is no exception. Many castles along the Moselle are still very well preserved and can even be visited. Below are just a couple of the beautiful castles along the Mosel, which are very easy to reach from Koblenz.
One of the oldest castles in the Moselle region can be found in Alken. Partly built on Roman foundation walls, Thurant Castle is visible from afar. Up here you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Moselle valley and its vineyards. During a tour, you can not only experience the double castle, but also learn about the ancient craft of winemaking.Learn more!
If this sight looks somehow familiar to you, you are not mistaken. The pearl of the Mosel idyll, Eltz Castle, adorned the back of the 500-mark bill between 1961 and 1995. And a stamp was also issued at the end of the 1970s. This is hardly surprising, because Eltz Castle is so enchantingly situated in nature that you can't help but be amazed.Learn more!
Cochem Imperial Castle
When you think of the Moselle, you usually think of Riesling, vineyards with steep terraces and Moselle bends. From now on, Moselle castles should definitely be in this list as well, because they have a lot to offer. The Reichsburg in Cochem is a real jewel, high on the rock above Cochem and lovingly restored in the 19th century. Here you can experience all sorts of things from the age of knights. Knights' banquets, medieval customs and a very special atmosphere at Christmas time are worth the visit.Learn more!
Via Train through the Moselle Valley
Trains run several times a day between Koblenz and Trier. Even if you travel from Luxembourg with the RE 11, they do not have to change trains even once. You have never experienced a more beautiful train ride than on the route with the RB 81 through the Moselle valley. Falling asleep on the train is impossible on this connection. But if it does happen, just get off at the next wine village, try a sip of Riesling and return in complete relaxation.
