The Moselle

This year we drove our camper along the Moselle to continue to Austria. And this has become by far our favorite region from Germany. It’s beautiful! Camping in this region for a longer period of time should be great. Don’t forget to take a day trip to the various castles near this region. You will find real fairy-tale castles such as Burg Eltz. Besides visiting castles, it is up to nature, and of course the delicious wine, in the Moselle. A romantic weekend away? Check!

The Eifel

The Eifel is our second most favourite place in Rhineland-Palatinate. And this is because of the breathtaking nature and panoramas. Hikers are sure to get their money’s worth here. Just think of the beautiful Eifel National Park. But there are also several museums and picturesque villages to walk around quietly. So why not take a weekend off or spend a vacation? It is the ideal place for peace and quiet in nature.
