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 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.

Bullay for the train connection is an easy cycle the other direction. The house is a good base to explore from, we walked and cycled both directions on the Mosel, enjoyed the flat cycling and steeper winery paths.the 3 hour cruise from Cochem to Zell is a nice way to return after cycling there ,go early if you want time in Cochem our boat left at @3pm.Go to the tower above Alf spectacular 360 views over the Mosel meanders. The house is spacious with 3 large bedrooms,over 3 floors well equipped, clean and comfortable.plenty of hot water and a large garage for storing bikes.it was easy to access. For our group a taxi worked out cheaper than the bus from Hahn Airport, they are really well geared for the tourist in the region, bring your translation dictionary alot of the information signs etc are not translated (which is nice in it's own way!) A nice area for a quiet holiday and a nice house to be based in.we enjoyed our 4 days.

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!
