The beautiful rolling hills situated along the Mosel River make for one of Europe's great wine valleys.

We enjoyed an excursion to the Moselle valley to visit a winery. Seeing the vineyards with their neat rows of vines, stretching up and across the mountains was very interesting, and the rheisling was great too.

What could be nicer? Mile after mile of cycle paths on both sides of this meandering river with boats floating past you gently, steep vineyards on all sides and lovely, old and characterful villages to explore every few kilometres or so. Heaven.

Beautiful region with lost of old, small towns, wineries. Underrated and under visited. I hear its quiet in winter but when we visited in summer, it was absolutely lovely to drive around. Great for cyclists.

Plenty of historical and modern locations to visit. Roads are good. You'll find gas station, restaurant and bed around every corner. Restaurants vary from simple currywurst kiosks to three Michelin star palaces. You can easily spend a week just driving around the towns and tasting...More

I was on an Avalon Waterways tour and am SO glad I took the excursion to the Moselle Valley. I'm sure they are the same. The scenery is unbelievable!
