Vinothek Kühner-Adams, Mehring

At the upper end of the Middle Mosel, in Lörsch to be precise, you will find the beautiful "Vinothek am Flusskilometer 174". It is run by the Kühner-Adams winery from Mehring and combines modern and traditional architecture in a very special way! A few years ago, winemaker Hans-Josef transformed an old farmhouse into this fantastic vinotheque. But it's not just the architecture that is worth a visit. The family presents refreshing wines and selected dishes such as tarte flambée or cheese platters, which make an excellent pairing.

A little tip: The vinotheque is regularly open from May to October, but you can also take part in great events here in the off-season.

"This vinotheque is a perfect example of the hospitality and warmth of the Mosel people. Enjoy the Mosel valley and its wine in an idyllic and relaxed setting. Thanks to the Adams family, this is possible in Lörsch and absolutely recommendable!"

Beilstein

Beilstein on the Terrassenmosel has long ceased to be an insider tip. The small village invites you to explore the many alleyways that lead up toSt Joseph's Church. Metternich Castle towers above the village, where you can even climb up to the highest tower and enjoy the view over the village. A visit to one of the many wine taverns or cafés rounds off the day perfectly.

A tip for the perfect excursion: take the opportunity to take a boat trip from Cochem to Beilstein! From here you have the best view of Beilstein and the surrounding countryside.

Collis steep path, Zell (Mosel)

Fancy an adventure? The Collis steep path has an alpine character with via ferrata, 160 metres in altitude and a length of 1.2 kilometres and is perfectly secured with step bars, ladders and wire ropes thanks to the Alpenverein Koblenz and the Heimat- und Verkehrsverein Zell. If you don't want to climb, you can bypass the via ferrata on the steep path along old vineyard walls.
At the end, a well-earned refreshment awaits all hikers at the Collis Tower.
