Restaurant Lex also has a charmingly furnished guesthouse comprising apartments as well as a double room. So, needless to say, the most delicious and comfortable stay in Leiwen includes savouring fine food in the restaurant of an evening and using the guesthouse as a base for excursions to the region's vineyards and many unique wine villages during the daytime. It’s also easily possible to cater for yourself in the holiday apartments and to perhaps treat yourself to "just" one or two of the restaurant’s culinary creations.
Leiwen is located on a particularly picturesque loop of the Mosel, where the gentle rolling landscape of the Mosel Valley gradually gives way to more dramatic steep slopes. Trier, Germany's oldest city, with its many ancient sites, and Bernkastel-Kues, the half-timbered medieval gem along the Middle Mosel, are both close by. A daytime hike along the Moselsteig Trail or a tour on the Mosel Cycle Path is certain to whet your appetite ready for a relaxed, delicious finish to a day well spent.
