Tiny house or wine barrel? Extraordinary overnight stays on the Moselle

Tiny house or wine barrel - overnight stays in castles

A night in a wine barrel or tiny house

There are many accommodations between Winningen and Burgen an der Mosel. But have you ever slept in a wine barrel? Or would you rather rent a tiny house?

Accommodation along the Moselle - wine barrel and tiny house are just a few of them

Castles, chapels and churches, half-timbered places and vineyards. A holiday on the Lower Moselle has something romantic and steeped in history. The Moselle meanders more than 300 kilometers through its valley. Rocks and flanks accompany them until they in Koblenz in the Rhine flows. Eleven places between Winningen and Burgen as well as three high-altitude villages invite you to accommodation that is exceptional.

On the move like a pilgrim or knight or rather in a tiny house

Sleeping on fur and like on clouds and listening to the call of fox and owl. This is possible in a touring carriage like in the Middle Ages at the Ehrenburg above Brodenbach. There is room for four people here. You take a shower in the Bade-Torturm. Or you can choose one of the 13 bowers of the castle, which lies on a rocky spur above the Moselle. There you get a feeling of how traders, pilgrims and knights traveled in the Middle Ages.



Guests can experience a night in a wine barrel at Campingpark Burgen. In addition to a bed, the camping barrel is equipped with a kettle, coffee cups and wine glasses. "There's room in the smallest hut!". That's the motto of an overnight stay in one of the Tiny Houses on the Historic mill Vogelsang*. Thanks to the windows and the wood in country house style, an ambience is created that spreads cosiness.

Sleep in the village house or in the farmhouse room

You can also escape everyday life on the Lower Moselle in the little village house in Lehmen. The village teacher taught the children in his apartment in the 16th-century building. The terrace offers a view of the Moselle vineyards and the 12th-century bell tower. Farm holidays are also ideal for families. Especially when the holiday apartment is a farmhouse parlor like on the Scheidterhof* high above Kobern-Gondorf. Here you have a distant view of the Eifel, Moselle and Hunsrück. In addition, the apartment is not far from the Koberner Burgpfad, one of the Moselle dream trails.

You shouldn't forget that if you hiking on the Moselle willst

The old mill in Kobern impresses with its flair of antiques, the babbling of the mill stream, the singing of the birds and the forest air. Paths and alleys lead through Thurant Castle. From here you have a view over the Moselle, the vineyards and the town of Alken. The Sporkhorst holiday home can accommodate up to six people.



Overnight in a wine barrel

Many Campsites on the Moselle* offer the opportunity to spend the night in a wine barrel. You can find and reserve these here, for example.

TravelWorldOnline has been online since 2001. Their topics are trips to Savor, wine tourism worldwide and slow travel. During her studies Monika Fuchs spent some time in North America, where she - partly together with Petar Fuchs - traveled to the USA and Canada and spent a research year in British Columbia. This intensified her thirst for knowledge, which she satisfied for 6 years as an adventure guide for Rotel Tours and then for 11 years as a tour guide for Studiosus Reisen around the world. She was constantly expanding her travel regions, but curiosity still gnawed at her: "What's beyond the horizon? What else is there to discover in this city? Which people are interesting here? What do they eat in this region?" As a freelance travel journalist (her articles have appeared in DIE ZEIT, 360° Canada, 360° USA, etc.), she is now looking for answers to these questions as a travel writer and travel blogger in many countries around the world.
