Welcome to Moselle Valley

In spring pale-purple wisteria flowers, trailing from stone houses, anticipate the bunches of grapes that will ripen in autumn. Wonderful walking trails allow you to explore the Moselle’s precipitous banks, where you’ll find Europe's (and reputedly the world's) steepest vineyard, the Bremmer Calmont just north of Bremm, with a 65-degree gradient.
