Of course, no trip to the Mosel is complete without a river cruise. It is arguably the best way to see the countryside from a different perspective. Unlike trips over land, on the river you get to see both banks at the same time! And I can guarantee there is something to make you “ooh”, “ah” or even gasp on every slow bend of the river, be it a stunning town, dramatic fortress or just another amazing vista.
Tours are available which last from a few hours to several days if you take in the Rhine too. The longer trips take place on board the impressive floating hotel ships. Or why not a romantic evening dinner cruise watching the sunset over the vineyards? And if you are feeling really adventurous, try renting your own holiday boat. Trust me, there are so many options to suit all tastes and budgets.
