Art nouveau - On the trail of the Belle Epoque

Discover the architectural treasures and exciting history of a former wine trading metropolis on an wine architectural walk.

Wine architectural walk

Around 1900, the town of Traben-Trarbach was known as one of the most important wine trading towns and was the second largest wine trans-shipment center in Europe, right after the great French city of Bordeaux. The reason for this exceptional position was the great demand for Riesling wines and the exports, especially to Great Britain and overseas, which resulted in the establishment of over 100 wine companies.
Enormous prosperity and wealth thus created the basis for lively building activity in the upper middle-class style. Thus, the Berlin architect Bruno Möhring discovered his love for the Moselle landscape and unique buildings were created, such as the Art Nouveau hotel "Bellevue", the "Villa Huesgen", the "Villa Nollen" (formerly Villa Breucker), the "Brückentor" and the "Kellerei Julius Kayser" (today Buddha Museum) as well as other buildings of the "Belle Epoque". In addition, in the second half of the 19th century, the capacities of the Traben-Trarbach wine cellars were increased and, as in no other Moselle community, large areas of the town center were cellared with vaults, some of which were several stories high and over 100 meters long.

Discover the architectural treasures of a former wine trading metropolis during our "Wine Architectural Walk" and finally dive into one of our underworld cellars.
