River Moselle.

Bussang

by Bert Schwarz

The Moselle flows through France, Luxembourg and Germany past pitoresque medieval towns and vertiginous hillsides filled with vines. It meanders leisurely from place to place, holding in store sights of fairy-tale castles or fortresses, some destroyed by long-ago battles or lovingly restored and maintained. Around every bend in the river, wine restaurants and small towns glued to the hillsides await, where time seems to stand still.
