To the Moselle with your motorhome

The best places to visit with your motorhome in the Moselle region!

You do not have to travel far for a fun weekend getaway. Along the Moselle, a river that runs through France, Luxembourg, and Germany, you'll find plenty of wineries, picturesque villages, and beautiful motorhome stopovers! What more could you want? In this article, we composed a list with some of the best places to visit along the Moselle in Germany and France!

Koblenz - Germany

The Moselle River actually ends in Koblenz, but that does not mean that this city isn't the perfect starting point to explore this beautiful region! Take a walk through the Altstad - the historical centre of the city - during your visit to Koblenz. This part of the city is characterized by its cosy alleys, stunning buildings, and squares with lots of restaurants and shops! You should definitely have a look at the Jesuitenplatz; this might be the most beautiful square in Koblenz.

As mentioned earlier, the Moselle River flows into Koblenz. In fact, the 544-kilometer-long river merges into the Rhine here. The two giant rivers meet in Koblenz at the Deutsches Eck. This is arguably the most popular place in Koblenz, on the one hand because of the merging of the two rivers here, and on the other hand because of the enormous statue of emperor Wilhelm II that you can find on the junction. Right across the statue, you'll find the Ehrenbreitstein. This is a fort from the 19th century that offers some fantastic views over Koblenz and its surroundings!

You can stay the night with your motorhome at Knaus Reisemobilstellplatz Koblenz. From this motorhome stopover, you'll look out over the Deutsches Eck from your window!

Alken, Brodenbach and Castle Eltz - Germany

If you park your motorhome at Alken, you can easily make lots of different day trips to some of the most beautiful places along the Moselle. Alken itself is a tiny, old wine village with some beautiful historical sights. For example, you could pay a visit to the old city walls!

A couple kilometres south from Alken lies Brodenbach. This romantic village lies in a curve of the Moselle and is surrounded by forests. Because of its green surroundings, this village is a aerial health spa and has lots of amazing hiking trails on offer! For example, you could walk all the way to Ehrenburg! This stunning fortress from the 12th century can be reached through the romantic Ehrbachtal. Do you want to stay close to Brodenbach? Then spend the night at Parkplatz Salzwiese.

Fancy visiting a real fairytale-castle? Have a look at Castle Eltz. This stunning castle, which is almost 900 years old, lies in the beautiful Eltzer forest. This means that you can not only admire some amazing architecture here, but you can also make several beautiful hikes! This might be one of the best places along the Moselle.

Cochem & Bremm - Germany

A lot of people will think of Cochem when they hear 'the Moselle'; and that's not a weird thing! Cochem is probably one of the most well-known and popular destinations along the Moselle. Are you interested in visiting this stunning village? Read our blog ''Visit Cochem with the motorhome!''. You can spend the night close to Cochem at Wohnmobil-Stellplatz an der Nordbrücke.

If you follow the Moselle down south for 20 kilometres, you will end up in Bremm. In this village, you'll find the steepest wine-hill of all Europe! This hill, named the Bremmer Calmont, has a gradient of 65 degrees. If you're a bit adventurous, you can climb the hill via the Klettersteig. This hike takes about 2 hours, but it gives you some amazing views as soon as you reach the top.

You can stay with your motorhome at a winery, namely at Weingut Oster-Franzen. Wine-lovers will feel right at home here, because you can partake in a delicious wine-tasting directly at the motorhome stopover!

Metz - France

Fancy travelling a little further? Then you could visit the French part of the Moselle. We advise you to go to Metz. This city is bursting with beautiful architecture, delicious restaurants, museums, and shops. Also, you should definitely pay a visit to the Saint-Étienne cathedral. This gigantic cathedral has some stunning stained-glass windows.

But, luckily enough, there's also enough to experience for nature lovers since this city is known as one of the greenest cities in France! You could have a look at the Jardin Botanique. In this botanical garden, you'll find lots of exotic plants and flowers, as well as fish, birds and even turtles!
