Join us on this epic wine festival weekend where the locals really know how to enjoy themselves!
We are fortunate indeed to secure rooms in the centre of Bernkastel where the event takes place. A whole street down by the river will be dedicated to the local producers who are very keen that you sample the results of their efforts now that the harvest is in and they can concentrate on having a good time. At night the whole place comes ALIVE.
There will be a funfair, grand firework display, a parade featuring floats from the local vineyards and the crowning ceremony for the lucky pretty girl who will be elected Mosella Wine Princess for the following year. It is a great scenic event where the festivities will all be readily accessible from your town centre hotel. For more details click HERE - you will NOT be disappointed!
Ride with us to Bernkastel a part of Germany that is readily accessible from the UK and has the most extraordinary local architecture. Located on the banks of the Mosel it really is a picture postcard destination. The ride through forests and valleys is a visual feast and the town itself is a real step back in time. During the festival a brass band or oompah band will be playing in the town square so grab a bite to eat and take in the great atmosphere in a land that time forgot.
Our daytime ride out will be cross country to Burg Eltz to see a castle that is still owned and occupied by the same family for the last 500 years - the setting in a remote valley made the castle impregnable so its period features remain intact. If you are into historical artefacts then the Treasure Room and Armoury make an interesting afternoon diversion. On the way back we call in at Cochem - a very popular local biking haunt that often has a vast array of Classic and sports bikes on display especially at weekends. The ride back to the Hotel alongside the river is particularly rewarding, meander along the riverbank with vast vineyards as a backdrop - you can see why the local bikers love it!
Our base for this four day minibreak is a lovely period property right in the centre of Bernkastel situated on the banks of the Mosel River where the vineyards rise up in terraces above the town. Bernkastel exudes a lovely olde-worlde charm - a beautiful old town of typical half-timbered buildings along a main street leading to the Main Square where at the end of the day you may choose to sample the best of the famous local wines.
Savour the gorgeous scenery as you ride on your motorcycle past vineyards and castles on both sides of the river in this truly beautiful part of Germany. It's a great destination that makes a super minibreak!
Lovely place, superb riding, and all of this plus a wine festival weekend...
