Special events along the Moselle

There are plenty of things to do on the banks of the Moselle. Visit wine festivals or cultural events, or enjoy beautiful walks or bike rides through breathtakingly beautiful landscapes. For special events we regularly offer package deals with accommodation on our website. So visit our website regularly and stay informed.


In the period from April to the end of the year there is a wine or street party almost every weekend. Here is a small overview.


During the festive season, the summer stage with free concerts attracts many visitors to Bernkastel-Kues. Every Thursday evening it is showtime for music from mainly regional artists.


Particularly popular is the largest wine festival in the Middle Moselle, which takes place every year in Bernkastel-Kues on the first weekend of September. During this festival, winemakers from the surrounding villages on the Moselle present their wines. With lots of music, food and good wine, life is celebrated here from Thursday to Monday. Highlights are the big fireworks on Saturday evening and the parade of winemakers on Sunday afternoon. During this festival, local clothing is often worn. The women wear the traditional “Moselblümchen”, the men the dark blue winery jacket with a red scarf.


The year ends with the Christmas market in the town of Bernkastel-Kues. Scattered throughout the historic old town you will find small stalls and mulled wine stalls everywhere. Highlights are the torchlight swimming, an impressive fireworks show and the opening of the largest advent calendar in the region. From December 1 to December 24, every evening a door will be opened to reveal a Christmas gift.

Corona Update

Dear guests,

The government imposed a ban on overnight stays for tourist purposes until 19 April 2020.

All bookings that fall within this period can at any time be cancelled or postponed free of charge.

Same regulations apply to our foreign guests that might not be able to visit us due to border closures during this period.

Even if the authorities extend the official closure, these regulations will continue to apply.

We would be pleased if you would take the following quotation to heart:

“Postponed is not cancelled”, so you will not only secure our jobs but also those of our partners and the local region.

For bookings received via our homepage until 30 May 2020, we grant you a 10% discount when placing a 50% deposit.

We ask for your understanding and hope to see you again very soon.


Warmest regards

Katja and Stefan Krebs along with Barbara and Alexandru
