Why Visit Moselle?

Usually combined with a Rhine cruise

One of the longest tributaries of the River Rhine

The Moselle becomes navigable for cruise boats at Trier, where you can walk in the footsteps of Roman Emperors, who founded Germany’s oldest city here. Among the Roman remains to be seen are an amphitheatre, thermal baths and the magnificent Porta Nigra – the best-preserved Roman gateway in northern Europe.  

Trips often start at Trier cruising to Koblenz, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine. It is an attractive journey, as the river meanders its way through some of Germany’s best-known wine-growing regions. Visits to vineyards and wine-tasting cellars are a common feature on the itineraries of most cruises on this river.  

There will also be plenty of opportunities for sightseeing. At Cochem, you can take a cable car up to Reichsburg Castle, parts of which date back to the year 1000, although most of what you see today reflects the neo-gothic splendour of the 19th century. From here, you can enjoy spectacular views over the Moselle and beyond.  

Another attractive stop is Zell, where you can choose to relax in one of the town’s bars to sample the local wine, known as Zeller Schwartzer Katz (The Black Cat of Zell). However, if you are feeling energetic, then take advantage of the hiking trails around the town to see more of the countryside.  

Koblenz is the walled city where the Moselle meets the Rhine. It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany with a medieval old town and buildings dating back over a thousand years. A cable car ride up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress offers dramatic views over the Rhine Valley.  

Across the river is Bernkastel-Kues, which claims to be Moselle’s wine capital. With wines from over 5000 vineyards available in the town, there are plenty of choices, and if you haven’t already bought a souvenir of your Moselle cruise, then this is the ideal place to do so.
