Moselle Travel Guide

The Moselle Valley is a region in eastern Luxembourg that has been promoted as a wine-growing region since the 19th century and has developed an important tourist industry around its renown as a rural idyll.

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg shares its important asset with neighbouring Germany - the wide, navigable Moselle River, tributary of the Rhine. Along the Luxembourg riverbanks are vineyards that produce a wine which connoisseurs rate as among the best in the Moselle Valley. A wine tour through the quiet villages and wine cellars of the region is a scenic and relaxing experience.

The principal town of Luxembourg's Moselle wine growing region is linked to the German bank of the river by a bridge. Grevenmacher is an old town with narrow streets, the remains of medieval fortifications, and a 13th-century Belfry. The town's claim to fame is the wine cellars of Caves Bernard-Massard, whose sparkling wines are internationally acclaimed. The cellars are open daily for tastings from April to October from 9.30am to 6pm. There is a small museum in the town, and an exotic butterfly garden. Grevenmacher is also an embarkation point for regular scenic river cruises on the Moselle, which call at other quaint villages in the region.
