The Rhineland/Rhine Valley region

The Mosel Valley has been associated with wine manufacturing from before the days of the Roman Empire. The wine village of Ellenz lies on the Moselweinstrasse roughly midway between Koblenz and Trier, which is Germany's oldest town.

The beautiful and historic town Cochem is about 9 Kilometres away and offers all the charm and amenities that the Mosel has to offer.

The valley enjoys the reputation of being one of the warmest destinations in Germany or indeed central Europe.

Throughout the year there are many events the most important and in our opinion and the most fun are the winefests in July/August/September that take place in all the villages along the Mosel, With the wine harvesting taking place usually end September /early October

There are many activities to do in the area why not take a leisurely boat trip and even have lunch on board.

For those who prefer the more active pursuits why not hire a canoe, Walk the Bremmer Calmont (Europe's steepest vineyard) and many other trails

or perhaps just hire a bicycle and cycle along the Mosel.

Within easy reach you will find the world famous Nürburgring, home to the German Formula1Grand Prix 2013 and scheduled again for 2015 which has all the excitement of the racing world

For the historians amongst us why not explore the many castle and ruins along the Mosel and the Rhine Valley

Zur Alten Weinkelter is only a short journey away from Reichsburg Castle (Cochem) & Burg Eltz

why not look at visiting the mosel during the quieter winter months, The Mosel Valley has a serenity, which offers outstanding beauty and peace and is an ideal location for walking holidays During late November / December there are some fabulous traditional German Christmas markets that are not to be missed more details are available on request


Ellenz is a traditional wine village a place to enjoy wonderful scenery, fantastic wine direct from the wine makers

a superb central location for a relaxing holiday

To Experience the German traditional wine making industry and traditional village life

"A great place to stay with excellent hospitality"

We've just spent a terrific week in this apartment. We were met by Maria as soon as we arrived and shown round the apartment, which is just stunning - the photos don't do it justice. I could… More

"Excellent value for money"

Beautiful location very quiet at this time of year. Be aware that everything shuts on Sunday no trading except for restaurants and cafe'
If you don't speak German useful to have translator app on phone or German dictionary.
Cochem very pretty easily accessible by bus if you want to have a drink out of the village
Train travel also very reasonable we took a train to Kobenz for 20 euros return for 4 people
Property had quite a few stairs not suitable for people with disabilities or very young children
Apartment very clean and well equipped , warm with wood burning stove

"What a beautiful place to stay"

We stayed here for the last week in august. From the very first contact Mike and Maria couldn't have been more helpful. From dealing with my endless enquiries about dates to putting two extra beds into the apartment to speaking to their vet for me the owners have been brilliant.
When we arrived the apartment was clean and really lovely. The building is very old and has such character. Maria was there to welcome us and gave us good local advice. The area is beautiful. From our window we could see over the village and the valleys. Ellenz is so quant and pretty. We loved walking along the river and watching the boats. It's very quiet but we loved that. Many of the houses produce their own wine and have cellars they open up in the evenings. We had a lovely meal at one of the restaurants. The meal was lovely and even the dog was welcome!
Nearby Cochem was great to visit and the castle is lovely to explore. The area has stunning scenery and great places to eat out or just have a drink. There are great places to walk and the whole area is very child and dog friendly. There is plenty to do and we found the food both in shops and restaurants really good value. We found all the local people friendly, helpful and approachable. We really couldn't have asked for more.
Ellenz is about an hour from Nurburgring and that was a brilliant day out with a museum and rides and of course the circuit itself.
I would recommend this area and without doubt 'Zur alten weinkelter' as a place to stay. We got lots of help and advice during our stay. Didn't matter what our request, Mike and Maria were always there to help us and point us in the right direction. They found us a dentist on a Sunday morning and even booked our dog into the vets!
We are planning to stay again and its so lovely to find a place that we can recommend and also to look forward to many lovely stays there. We are looking forward to visiting the Christmas markets there also.
We all wanted to say a big thank you to Mike and Maria for making us so welcome, for letting us stay in your beautiful home and for all support. We all loved it and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Love Erica and rob, children and of course Bella the dog! X x

We had the most fantastic time. Mike and Maria were brilliant hosts. They were so helpful and knowlegeable about the area and were only too keen to share it with us. Nothing was too much trouble for them and as a result we had one of the best if not the best family holidays. The accomodation is immaculate and the location suberb. It is easy to travel around by bus and train and the Mosel River is on your doorstep. We hired bikes and canoes and visited a "Wine fest" at Mike and Maria's suggestion. We got an excellent flavout of German village life. Mike arranged a wine tasting which was one of th highlights of our trip. For children, the village swimming pool is fantastic and the walks through the vineyards and woods around the village are beautiful. This is a real "gem" which I cannot recommend highly enough. We travelled by Eurostar and German Railways from the UK which was amazingly efficient and relaxing.

At the end of our week the wines we liked the best Mike new the grower and got our cases of wine at trade price for us. We are looking forward to our next trip to the Riesling apartment.

Mike and Maria were fantastic hosts. Little did we know when we booked that they used to live just a few miles away from us! Lol. The House was wonderful with a slight view of the River mosel, and the… More

"A truly charming property in a beautiful area run by people who really want you to enjoy your stay."

The location of this magnificent house in the streets of Ellenz really make you feel part of the place. It was quiet and peaceful, the property fascinating and the owners (who are English so very easy communicatio) made every effort to make us feel at home and give every help they could have done. The attic room we rented for a week was delightful with the ancient beams and artefacts surrounding you. We understand it is being refurbished later in the year which will add further to it. There are endless places to visit in the area and Mike & Maria can advise on the 'must see' ones. Our week seemed so brief, so we only scratched the surface but this was an excellent base, run by great people who really care about what they do. The private wine cellar for evening drinks is atmospheric and interesting and again there are plans to futher improve it. Highly recommended.
