About this location

The Rhineland-Palatinate 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

"Great place to stay especially with a family"

We stayed for three nights in the Kerner appartment tucked away in a pretty side street but still with great views of the valley. Maria was on hand to give advice for day trips, lots of scope for running, walking, wine tasting and generally relaxing. The studio was just right for us and it was great to be able to use the garden to use up any remaing toddler energy at the end of the day. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome by Maria and Mike and also the other residents of the village. Great value would stay again - the wine from next door is good too!.
