After having seen the beautiful green banks of the Mösel river in 2018, we decided to drive back to this German wine region for a 2-day road trip. Koblenz is the oldest city of Germany and was, besides the capital of Prussia, also in Roman times already an important and strategic location. Walking into the Altstadt you are surrounded by history.
But the most impressive thing to see in Koblenz is actually the view from the river banks of Rhine and Mösel, as these 2 rivers confluent here at the famous Deutsches Eck. In all seasons, but maybe mostly in autumn, you will be surrounded by wonderful tree colours and many boats and cruise ships.
Make a relaxing stroll along the Rhine and find everywhere benches to sit or just stare at the buildings on the other side of the river.
From Koblenz you can easily drive out to see other towns and castles along the Rhine, like Rheinfels (St- Goar) and Stolzenfels castle.
Everywhere in this region you will find historical places with authentic architecture, like for example in Boppard, where the river makes its biggest bend. Try to see this magnificent view from the top of the hills with the Boppard chair-lift.
Also in Roman times Boppard was already inhabited and you will find some ruins of the old city wall and a fortress. Certainly take also a walk along the river at the Rheinallee (Rhine promenade).
And don’t forget to taste the local wines! This the home of the famous Riesling wines, which you will easily find in of the many wine shops, bars or restaurants.
