Vine-clad hills, rich farmland, woods and mountains all make this region an area of satisfying visual appeal, not forgetting the nearby unspoiled Vulkaneifel with its wonderful deep blue volcanic lakes, ideal for bathing. The region also has some of Germany’s greatest cities: historic Cologne with its roman and medieval associations; Düsseldorf, a vital modern city and Bonn, the birthplace of Beethoven.
Holidays to The Rhine, Mosel and Eifel
Two rivers are the lifeblood of this region – the mighty Rhine and the gentler Moselle. Whereas the Rhine may be rich in castles, the Moselle is by no means the lesser attractive of the two, with its serene nature. But wine also flows freely and beneficently in this region – superb vintages are made with dedicated skill by winegrowers along both river valleys.
