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.

Places to Visit in Rheineland-Pfalz

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.

In the southeast of Rheineland-Pfalz are the historic cities of Worms and Speyer which are both dominated by huge old Cathedrals. Speyer Cathedral is beautiful both inside and outside and has a massive crypt. The freshly painted town buildings which line Maximilianstrasse always make a colourful sight, along with the traditional maypole and the Altportal. 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.

The house was very clean, with everything we needed and is as described (although the detailed paperwork that we had to fill out was in German, so took a bit of translating - thank goodness for Google). We used the house as a base to visit the Christmas markets in Cologne, which was easy to reach by car in just over an hour. We also visited Trier, Bitburg and Luxembourg which are all within an hour's journey from Prüm. This would also be a lovely property to visit in the summer, as the house has a large back garden and BBQ and there is a plenty of countryside surrounding the town which would be nice to explore.

It was very clean, warm and extremely well equipped, including kitchen roll and washing-up liquid - the owners had thought of every detail. The WiFi and TV worked as expected. There was even a washing machine and dishwasher, although we didn't use them. The grand piano was a joy to play and the electric piano useful for playing late at night (headphones were provided). The apartment was about 5 minutes walk from both the station and Porta Nigra. Arrival and departure were smooth and friendly and accommodated our earlier than expected arrival and departure times. We loved exploring Trier with all its accessible Roman sites and many good restaurants. We thoroughly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to explore this very attractive town.

Easy access to many lovely places. Highly recommend: Burg Elst, Cochem, and Koblenz. Winningen itself is small but pleasant with good restaurants. If going by car you will need the card clock to park in the town for the time permitted but parking is available nearby. The villa has no private parking for guests. The host is helpful and welcoming.
