The Moselle passes through France, Luxembourg and Germany past pitoresque medieval towns and vertiginous slopes 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.
The Moselle's source lies on the western slopes of the Vosges Mountains in Alsace. It then flows through Lorraine west of the Vosges. Then it meanders through Luxembourg into Germany, where it separates the Eifel and the Hunsrück. Finally, it flows into the Rhine at the city of Koblenz.
From the source we follow the river as it winds through pretty little towns with friendly people and near Nancy turns northeast toward Metz. Then we continue towards Remich in Luxembourg and through the German Moselle valley past Trier with its famous Porta Nigra, the only preserved city gate from Roman times.
The charming wine village of Bernkastel with its half-timbered houses must not be missed, of course.
We travel on further downstream, where Ehrenburg Castle lies well hidden in a valley from the gaze of passers-by and well fortified against attackers in ancient times. A little further on, Beilstein and Cochem await us featuring its Reichsburg, which towers over the small town on the top of a hill.
The Moselle and Rhine then meet in 2,000-year-old Koblenz, where it flows into the river carrying on to Holland at the Deutsches Eck.
