The holiday region Bernkastel-Kues lies in the middle of the meandering river landscape Moselle. The formation of the primeval Moselle began 15 million years ago. The slate mountains rose and the wide, straight riverbed became deeper and more winding. This gave rise to the meandering course of the river and has left a lasting mark on the landscape to this day. The southern slopes offer ideal conditions for viticulture due to the high solar radiation and are habitat for rare plants and animals such as the Apollo butterfly and the green lizard. Flora and fauna make the Moselle vineyards come alive.
