Discover the impressive sights of the Moselle and the surrounding area

Move, relax, enjoy

Bernkastel-Kues and the Moselle have many sights to offer and are as varied as you could wish for. Do you want action and exercise? No problem. You decide whether you want to ride over the vineyards on a mountain bike or accompany the Moselle on an e-bike. Rowing or stand-up paddling - that's also possible. And of course you can also relax. Sitting in the sun or spending the day with a good book - it's all marvellous.

Wine Experiences

"Wine Experiences" in Bernkastel-Kues does not only mean enjoying excellent and often internationally recognized top wines, but also exploring and feeling its preconditions, stages of development and components.

One of the most beautiful sights on the Moselle is of course a wine rack and a tasting session

Whether it is a hike through the vine­yards or a visit to a wine press, a visit to the wine mu­seum or the vino­theque in Kues - in the "inter­national city of grape­vines and wine" you can exper­ience in many different ways why the river, land­scape, soil and viti­culture form an ideal symbio­sis on the Mosel river, from which a special "drop" is created.

Visiting many sights on the Moselle can be easily combined with a cycle tour

Bicycle ride

The Mosel valley offers excellent conditions for bicycle tours of all kinds. Those who want to cycle leisurely along the river to discover picturesque little wine villages and perhaps have a glass of wine and something to eat can do so on developed cycle paths for hundreds of kilometers.

Others would like to take side trips to the high altitudes of the Hunsrück and the Eifel and can do so under their own power or with the help of electric bicycles. Public buses provide transportation for all cyclists several times a day to the Mosel towns in the area or even to the Volcanic Eifel. On the Maare-Mosel cycle path you can cycle for hours down to the Mosel on the old railroad line over viaducts and through tunnels - fun for the whole family.

Places of interest

You can reach Trier, the oldest city in Germany founded by the Romans, in just over half an hour by car. Follow the traces of Roman history on the Moselle, visit the famous sights such as the Porta Nigra, the amphitheatre, the Imperial Baths, wine presses and the Trier Cathedral, which was also built on Roman foundations.

The Moselle in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (20 minutes from Trier) offers an interesting contrast to the German part and also many sights. From there, it is also not far to the city of Luxembourg with its French ambience, excellent restaurants and diverse cultural offerings.

For lovers of the Middle Ages, we recommend a visit to the ‘Reichsburg’ castle in Cochem and Eltz Castle near Koblenz, which is certainly one of the most impressive sights in the Moselle region.

An excursion to the Eifel region with its volcanic landscape can be combined - for horsepower enthusiasts - with a visit to the Nürburgring.

The maars in the Eifel are among the most beautiful sights in the Moselle region

Insider tips from the Mosel river

The Mosel offers one of the most beautiful river landscapes in Europe. A region that is worth discovering. It doesn't matter whether you do this by car, by air, by bike, on foot or from the water. The Mosel river is worth seeing from every point of view, from every angle. With the multitude of attractions and sights, which are quite different in size and nature, it is sometimes very difficult to get the real highlight or the right tip for an absolutely interesting destination.
