Last month I finally had the pleasure of exploring the famous Mosel wine region of Germany.
I chose to stay in the small town of Kröv in the Bernkastel-Wittlich district, which looked like a great area for riding a bicycle.
Unfortunately the weather was not on my side, so it rained for a third of my stay. Even so, I was able to take out my camera a few times.
The next day I went for a car ride around the area. I wanted to better understand the differences between Germany’s Mosel wine region and Italy’s Tuscany region.
Compared to Tuscany, the Mosel region of Germany is very accommodating to cyclists. Protected bike paths connect most of the towns and villages, so it’s a pleasure to drive around. As long as you stay close to the Moselle river there is almost no elevation.
