Cruising down the Mosel

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.

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.

Here is a flavour of what you can expect on a trip down the river:

Holiday Apartments and Italian Restaurant in Zell


Personally I have not stayed in these apartments but they come highly recommended by a good friend, and judging by the website (link on my Useful Addresses page) they look very stylish and comfortable indeed. Sadly the website (which is here) is only in German but the young owners do speak several languages including German, Italian and English.

I have tried their Italian restaurant and the food was extremely good, being cooked by Giovanni, a native Italian, himself. Booking is advised as it can get quite busy.
