Moselle River Cruises

The romantic Moselle River winds through an enchanting landscape of steep, emerald vineyards, legendary castles and picture-book villages strung like pearls along the riverbank. Its terraced slate hillsides draping to the water’s edge form one of the most spectacular wine regions in Europe. The rich wine-making traditions of Germany are also ever-present here, as you’re sure to discover during one of our Moselle river cruises below.

Highlights of the Moselle River

The Moselle River meets the Rhine at Koblenz, Germany. On the way, it weaves and twists from France, forms a natural boundary between Luxembourg and Germany and follows a sinewy path past breathtaking vistas of sloping vineyards. The Holy Roman Empire had one of its major capitals here, the magnificent city of Trier, and tidy villages emerged on its fertile shores to produce what would become some of the world’s most loved wines. Here are a few sample highlights of what awaits you on a Viking Moselle cruise:

  • Trier’s fascinating ruins from its days as a Roman capital
  • The fairytale charms of Bernkastel-Kues
  • Luxembourg City’s elegant and stately architecture
  • Wine-making traditions that date back 2,000 years
  • The stunning medieval town of Cochem
  • Millennium-old Reichsburg Castle, perched on a hillside
  • The quaint Old Town of Koblenz, where the Moselle and Rhine meet
  • The refined, sweet flavors of the world’s best Rieslings
