Your autumn and winter holiday on the Mosel!

The perfect break during the coldest season!

Every morning, the fog on the Mosel conjures up a mystical mood. When the sun lifts the fog, the landscape above the river shimmers golden. Usually it’s mild, but sometimes a few snowflakes make their way into the valley.

Time... to stroll through cities, to shop, and to discover historical tales at every corner.
Time... for long walks and hikes through the Mosel landscape.
Time... for cosy retreats with coffee and cake, and for wine and regional delicacies.


Discover the Mosel cities and culture, whatever the weather!
