The Moselle river valley is well known for its wines and the beauty of its scenery. For a river which is a tributary to the Rhine there is a wide and varied programme of discovery.
Cruise itineries tend to combine stretches of the Moselle with the Saar, Rhine and Neckar rivers.
No trip to this area would be complete without a visit to Marksburg castle in Koblenz, which has been inhabited for over 700 years and has changed little in that time.
Koblenz itself is a fascinating town which is over 2,000 years old having grown at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. To mark the spot, German Corner host it famous monument to Emperor William II. The "must-do" excursion is now to ride the new aerial tram across from Koblenz city centre, across the water to the Ehrenbreitstein fortress, Europe's oldest on the opposite side of the river, dating back to 1,000BC.
The town lies in the middle of the wine producing area of Moselle and is famous for the wines it produces.
Today a city of 87,000 inhabitants, its orgins stem from the desire of Duke Eberhard Ludwig von Wittenberg to establish an absolutist power base in the early 18th century, from which the largest baroque castle in Germany was built. Ludwigsburg Palace incorporates also a castle on the lake and celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2004.
An historic spa town with a well preserved medieval historic centre.
Its Staufer Palace which dates from 1182 is one of the beautiful examples of Renaissance architecture and was once the largest imperial Palace of its kind north of the Alps. Cruise from here to Heidelberg.
