Explore the bounty of the Mosel River from the beautiful scenery to the delicious wine and beer that this region is famous for! This amazing summer day out allows you to harvest the best the Mosel has to offer from a wine tasting to a brewery hall visit with lunch and Mosel river cruise – all included for one great price!
We start our day with a visit to the popular wine town of Bernkastel–Kues. Enjoy the charm and unique atmosphere of this historical city with a stroll along cobblestone streets framed by adorned half-timbered houses. Free time allows ample opportunity to fully enjoy the fairytale ambience before we continue our adventure further into the valley with a short scenic drive along the riverbanks to our next destination. We arrive at the Cistercian abbey of Machern, which looks back on more than 1000 years culinary and architectural history. Today the site functions as a brewery and also offers high quality rustic cuisine and ale. After lunch in the brewery hall (included), we invite you to explore all the abbey has to offer at your own pace. Visit the Toy & Icon museum, the brewery store, the Abbey’s own crypt, perhaps have another glass of wine in courtyard, or take a stroll through the herb and rose garden.
Next, we take a short river cruise down the Moselle, passing by steep vineyards, picturesque villages, hidden away castles and castle ruins to the well-known winegrowing town of Traben Trarbach. In the 19th century, Traben Trarbach became the most important wine town on the Moselle. To support the incredibly high demand for the famous Riesling wine, the largest known underground maze of wine cellars were built right beneath the town’s center. Here we will descend into a mystical labyrinth of cellars that make up the “Traben-Trarbacher underworld” of Mosel wine secrets.
We will discover the magic this ancient cellar bestowed on each barrel of wine that was aged here and the artisan techniques and wine growing secrets that led to the production of some of the finest wines in the world. The grand finale to our amazing day on the Mosel River will be an in-depth wine tasting hosted in the underground cellars.
