The romantic Mosel valley with its lovely vineyards and pretty old towns like Cochem is a familiar name to many. We tried out what there is to experience here for active families on a beautiful autumn weekend and were thrilled. Chair lift, the Klotten/Cochem Wildlife and Leisure Park, the former Bundesbank bunker, a boat tour on the Mosel and of course the Reichsburg Cochem - the Mosel region has a lot to offer for young and old.

How about watching animals and birds of prey up close at Greifvogelpark Saarburg? Or at the Wild- & Freizeitpark Klotten (family & leisure park) with its top attractions? The summer toboggan runs in Saarburg and Riol also guarantee rapid descents. Somewhat quieter, but high up, are the chairlifts in Saarburg and Cochem. Or would you rather be active and high up in the Mosel Adventure Forest Traben-Trarbach and the Leiwenforest climbing park?

Tip for a day trip: the Triolago swimming and leisure lake in Riol with summer toboggan run, putting course, football golf, water ski and wakeboard facilities and much more.

The swimming pools on the Mosel and Saar ensure some cooling refreshment. And if the weather gets too warm, too cold or too wet? Then that’s when some super indoor excursion destinations come into play. And what would a family holiday be without a game of mini golf?.

City tours on the Mosel are so much fun!

Adventurous city tours, puzzling scavenger hunts, Roman and medieval buildings. The towns on the Mosel offer inspiration for explorers of all ages. And excursions into the surrounding region are just as exciting.

    Ancient sites from Roman times are the main attractions of this 2,000-year-old Mosel metropolis. And of course Trier also has a lot to offer its younger fans of legionaries and gladiators. There's more that families learn to love about the city.

    Far away from the cities: the nature experience around the Ruwer river! Cycling, exploring nature, water sports, picnicking ... The area around the small mountain river Ruwer, which flows into the Mosel not far from Trier, has a lot to offer for kids who are hungry for exercise.

    Schweich & The Roman Wine Route

    Nature and adventure meet around the town of Schweich on the Roman Wine Route. Here you’ll find everything that’s fun to do on and around the water. You can also go down into the depths or do the opposite and climb to lofty heights. The area around Schweich inspired Celtic tribes and Romans in former times. In short: There’s always something happening here!

    Zell (Mosel)

    Wine lovers are well-acquainted with Zell’s most famous site, the “Zeller Schwarze Katz”. But there are also ways for children to follow the animal’s scent and experience plenty of action in general – on the via ferrata, for example or the nearby castle Arras.
