Enjoy spending a few carefree hours in one of Germany's state-of-the-art multimedia museums. The history and importance of wine for the people of the local region is explained over an entertaining series of more than 1,000 information displays, with plenty of films and animations.
The area around the Moselle is Germany's oldest winegrowing region and one of the traditional European centres of viticulture. The steep slopes of the river valleys are densely planted with vines, with these sharply inclining vineyards lending a distinct character to the region that makes it quite unlike any other wine-producing landscape in the world.
An impressive banquet hall
A banquet hall for holding wine-related events, decorated with a collection of glasses and bottles from various eras, is located on the upper floor of the museum.
Developed in collaboration with the Research Centre for Viticulture in Geisenheim, this museum demonstrates the impressive way in which the Moselle region combines traditional winegrowing with modern techniques.
Vinotheque with 150 wines
After visiting the museum, you can put your newly acquired knowledge to the test in a wine tasting session, with 150 varieties of wine and sparkling wine to sample, in the Vinotheque (wine library) located in the same building.
16 April – 31 October
Open daily from 10 am to 6 pm
1 November – 15 April
Open daily from 2 pm to 5 pm
Additional visits, arrangements for private functions, guided tours and wine tasting in the banquet hall are possible by prior arrangement.
