Traben-Trarbach is a twin town on the Middle Moselle and is located on the one hand at the head of a narrow Moselle loop and on the other at the foot of the Mont Royal mountain. And since there is hardly a larger town on the Moselle without a castle, the ruin of Grevenburg towers over the Trarbach district, which rewards the visitor with a magnificent view.
The city of Traben-Trarbach was once the second largest wine trading center in Europe after Bordeaux. The reason for this exceptional position was the huge demand for Riesling wines and exports, especially to Great Britain and overseas. This led to the establishment of over 100 wine companies and made Traben-Trarbach a very prosperous city. The areas of the Traben-Trarbacher underworld are correspondingly large, which have been expanded into a mystical network of partially two-story vaults over 100 m long. Today, this underworld invites to diverse experiences. A special highlight is certainly the annual Moselle Wine Night Market, which takes place in the vaulted cellars and thus becomes an unforgettable, atmospheric experience.
Absolutely worth seeing!
