Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Rheineland-Pfalz, Germany your home away from home

The lovely region of Rheineland-Pfalz is located on the western border of Germany, adjoining Luxembourg. It is a popular area with Americans who enjoy the many festivals held here. The area is rich in castles, with one at almost every town; picturesque towns with mural-painted houses and Roman ruins. This area is Germany's leading producer of wine and the wine routes in the south west are lovely. They are particularly busy in late summer, when the wine festivals are celebrated. The largest festival is the Durkheimer Wurstfest, or sausage festival, but the wine far outweighs the amount of sausages consumed!

Things to Do in Rheineland-Pfalz Visit the Wineries

The Mosel Valley is one of the prettiest valleys in the world and runs from Trier in the southwest of the region, to the famous Deutsches Eck in Koblenz. The winding river valley which stretches for about 50 miles (80km) is lined with beautiful vineyards. The better known German Wine Road also runs through the area further south, towards the French border. In the early autumn there is a continuous circuit of wine festivals in these areas offering wine tasting, parades and cultural events.

Enjoy the Cuisine

This region's specialities are sausages served with heaps of potatoes and sauerkraut. The Pflaz region serves Saumagen, a bologna made with pork and potatoes which is sliced and grilled. In this region beer takes a backseat to wine, especially as most of Germany's white wine is produced in this region.

The capital ofRheineland-Pfalz is the city of Mainz at the southern end of the Rheinland, Germany's premier wine region. It is home to some of Germany's most scenic castles and, although a modern city, it has some great museums.

Speyer Cathedral is beautiful both inside and outside and has a massive crypt.

The town also has some lovely churches such as the tiny Heiliggeistkirche or Holy Ghost Church. On a more modern note, Speyer has a Technik Museum with military aircraft and hardware on display.

Further north is Koblenz where the Rhein and the Mosel River meet. The Ehrenbreitstein Castle is one of the largest in this area with a maze of battlements and there is also the more modest 13th century Koblenz Castle. Take a ferry across the river and enjoy the historic architecture in this lovely city. The nearby towns of Weindorf and Bingen am Rhein are also worth exploring. In the far southwest is the modern metropolis of Kaisersalutern which has some historical treasures.

Es ist viel Platz vorhanden und eine super Ausstattung. Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war sehr nett und unkompliziert. Es gab gute Tipps von ihnen für den Aufenthalt. Von Enkirch aus gibt´s viele nette Wandermöglichkeiten, die auch für Kinder gut geeignet sind. Der Spielplatz an der Mosel ist schön und auch die Schleuse einen Besuch wert. Wir hätten sich auch noch länger dort bleiben können. Eine klare Weiterempfehlung!

It was in a beautiful location nestled right by the river with no road in front which is unusual on the Mosel. The accommodation was immaculate and in a very contemporary designer style to a very high standard. The Gartenhaus was a good size for 2 people, with 2 bathrooms and was very well equipped, being given bathrobes is always a very good sign of customer care. The grounds were superbly landscaped, with fantastic olive, lemon and fig trees as well of course as the grape vine garden. There are lovely places to sit and watch the world and river go by while sipping a nice glass of local wine. Sitting in the jacuzzi looking out over the lovely courtyard and views was a very relaxing experience. Norbert and his wife and their staff were incredibly friendly and even lent us their bikes. We also did one of their recommended walks which took us to the top of the slopes and back down through the middle of the vines which was spectacular (Apolloweg). You will not be disappointed with your visit here. We are definitely are planning a return visit.

                                                                                We were recommended to stay at Senhalser Höfe and our expectations were well exceeded. We made the most of a number of the facilities offered by the property including the outdoor dining and garden overlooking the river, the amazing movie cinema in the cellar and of course the indoor jacuzzi with large opening windows on to the river. Sitting in the jacuzzi with a glass of Moselle wine was a great way to relax and unwind. The accommodation is in a great location - unlike many other places on the Moselle, which are located on the main roads on either side of the river, this property is located directly on the river bank, away from the noise of the road. It is also close to many of the major attractions which we took advantage of, including walks into the vineyards to the nearby Roman Graves as well as the well-known Calmont-Klettersteig. We also used the bikes to ride along the river, as well as the canoe to paddle along the river. There are plenty of wineries and restaurants within walking distance and the people in the area are friendly and welcoming. The property is well appointed with modern features and old-style charm. The kitchen had everything we need to be able to comfortably self cater. It was great for a group like ours (5 adults) but would also be fine for a larger group or for a couple on a weekend getaway. The owners were very accommodating and helpful in recommending ways to make the most of our weekend on the Moselle. I would most definitely recommend Senhalser Höfe and look forward to returning there myself when I travel to Europe again.
