Some people would love to go on a big cruise ship to a wonderful destination. However often the idea of a cruise ship in the open oceans and just the thought of motion sickness, makes us shift the idea to one side.
Well this brings me to the Moselle River Valley. This is one of the most picturesque places in Europe with its vineyards flanking the river and pretty buildings lining the river banks.
The Moselle Valley (In French : Moselle / In German: Moseltal) is a region in the North-East of France, South-West Germany, and Eastern Luxembourg. The Moselle runs through, and along the borders of, the three countries.
The Cities you will find along the river are: Cochem / Trier / Bernkastel-Kues / Koblenz / Metz / Toul / Pont – a-Mousson / Thionville / Wasserbillig / Remich / Epinal / Schengen / Grevenmacher
Beautiful bridges along the river (some of which are very impressive) are: Moselle Viaducht / Roman Bridge / Baldwin Bridge / Kurt Schumacher / Pont des Morts / Moselbrücke / Gülser Eisenbahnbrücke / Moselbrücke Ehrang / Moselbrücke Löf-Alken / Viaduc de Vandières (Viaduc de la Moselle) / Moseleisenbahnbrücke in Koblenz (Moseleisenbahnbrücke)
The Moselle region is a famous wine region and whenever you have the opportunity to tour this valley along the river you just have to stop at Beilstein. This tiny cobblestone village with almost no shops are nicknamed the “Sleeping Beauty of the Mosel” and she is beautiful. More and more travelers are discovering this beautiful little town. It is worth a nice stop over for a night or two.
First of all the cruises are tailor made for anyone attending between the age of 1 and 99. Some of the cruises do have an age guideline of 8 or 12 years of age and older, but you can easily check online.
Normally you would also have an option of selecting the group size in which you would feel more comfortable. For Example a group of 20 people max or a group of more than 50 etc. It is totally your choice.
There are options to go on “fully guided” or “partially guided” tours and then there are more options…
