    Hi Doug the best time to go is September/October we went last year stayed at Longuich at first for 2 nights right on the river and cycled into Trier,then moved on every couple of days, but its easy on the bike, if you follow the Mosel to Koblenz there must be a couple of hundred stelplatz along the river. The wine fest are in most towns at some time or another if you contact the tourist information they could give you the dates in what town we never botherd and just came across them.If you google Mosel Weinfeste it might give you some info, the Germans are very friendly if you talk to them i did try to give Jane a tip most germans under 50 speak english but she will keep trying to talk to the old ones seeing her arms waving around. I would not drink the “Federweissen” its the new wine cloudy and still fermenting the germans love it, Jane said it taste like alco pops, I took her word for it, she had 3 ltrs it goes staight through you. You will have a great time when the ump pa pa music starts and they start swaying I never worked out if it was a dance or they drank to much :Rofl1: I liked the Rhine but its noisey with the trains at night, they move all the freight and it can be none stop all night,this might intrest you:


    The Loreley Night - 20.09.2008
    Although there is something sad about the Loreley legend – of a beautiful girl who sat on a rock combing her blonde hair and luring sailors to their deaths – this is one of the most romantic spots in Germany and a suitable setting for a climax to the Rhine in Flames season.

    The fireworks here light up the skies (and castle ruins) in the precipitous Rhine gorge close to the Loreley rock at the deepest and narrowest point of the river.

    The spectacle can be watched from cruise ships on the river itself. Alternatively, visitors can enjoy further firework displays and the wine festival atmosphere of nearby St Goar, St Goarshausen and Oberwesel.

    When you are there the Walnut are falling of the trees so take a bag or 2 ,we are off to the west coast of France on the 3rd Sep for a month unless the weather is not so good, we then be right behind you. We might be in Portugal in January so we may catch up with you then. Have a good trip. Bob.:thumb:

    I'll have some of that

    Thanks Bob, the info is usefull,

    "I would not drink the “Federweissen” its the new wine cloudy and still fermenting the germans love it"

    It sounds like the same thing the is done arround Sevilla, there they call it Mosto and I must admit that I like it and look forward to Chistmass time as it come out about then, it is sold right up to The Feria time at easter but by the most of the fermintation is finished.

    If you do go to the Algave try and give us a call (how do I send you my Portugese number priveatly?) are most common spot is Quatro Aquas in Tavira.

    Doug.

    Hi,
    The Moselvalley from Trier to Koblenz is beautiful and very MH-friendly. Nearly every village or town has something to offer. Most 'Stellplätze" are on the Mosel-banks, wich could flood in winter.
    Have a look at:
