Experience the Moselle valley barrier-free
The Moselle River makes countless turns as it winds its way through the stunning wine country of the Moselle valley. Follow its path, perhaps by boat, and discover charming vineyards alongside numerous cultural monuments and attractions, in Germany's oldest city, Trier, for example.
Experience a cultural landscape that dates back to over 2,000 years ago when the Romans left traces that are still visible today.
On the trail of the Romans
Walk along the trail of the Romans in Trier, the oldest city in Germany. It's always worth paying a visit to Trier. At almost every turn you'll find traces of the impressive Roman architecture that is now part of world cultural heritage. The Roman city gate, the Porta Nigra, is plainly visible from far away. Unfortunately, because of its many stairs, climbing the Porta Nigra is a challenge for those with limited mobility. Many other Roman ruins dot the ancient city centre.
The baths at Viehmarkt, the amphitheatre, as well as the Imperial Baths are all handicapped-accessible and open to the public. In the Rhineland Museum (Rheinisches Landesmuseum) in Trier, you can admire the largest collection of Roman gold treasures alongside ornate Roman mosaics.
Wine and Fine Dining:
On a Riesling wine tour
The Moselle valley wine region covers nearly 9,000 hectares. Over half of the vineyards are stocked with Riesling, the 'Queen of Grapes'. Along the Moselle River, you'll find countless scenic wineries to spend a relaxing afternoon enjoying the local vintage. Taste sparkling Riesling varieties at quaint wine taverns, renowned wine bars or paired with regional delicacies at excellent restaurants. If you're curious about the history of winemaking, then a visit to the Wine and Regional Museum (Wein- und Heimatsmuseum) in Zell is highly recommended.
Here you can view artefacts dating back to the Celtic and Ancient Roman times.
Keeping active in the breathtaking river landscape
The Moselle cycling route follows the Moselle River along all her curves and bends across a variety of landscapes, usually right beside the riverbank. On nearly incline-free paths, about 50 percent of which are paved, you can keep in shape while on holiday with a handbike or wheelchair tour. Experience the river in all its natural beauty.
