The medieval town of Bernkastel-Kues is the centre of this holiday region. The landscape of the Middle Moselle is characterised by the many meanders or loops of the Moselle. The valley of the Moselle, with its sometimes very steep slopes, is famous for its exceptional nature and - not least - for the wine that is grown here. The Middle Moselle has been characterised by viticulture since Roman times. The wine produced here was already transported on the river at that time. The Riesling from the Middle Moselle is particularly famous and has its lovers all over the world. In addition to Bernkastel-Kues, there are a number of well-known wine villages on the Middle Moselle, including Neumagen-Dhron, Piesport, Minheim, Wintrich, Kesten, Brauneberg, Mülheim an der Mosel, Lieser Graach, Wehlen, Zeltingen-Rachtig, Ürzig, Erden and Lösnich.
