Mosel & Ahr wine tasting visit for 4 nights

Jump to last reply

Hi guys, I have visited the Mosel a fair few times now and this autumn I want to take 10 friends (nearly all over 60) for a 4 night tour of the region buying Mosel (white) and Ahr (red) wines and tasting as we go. I know the train, ferry and road links pretty well and the majority of our friends will be driving here from the UK.

The advice I'm seeking is where to base ourselves? I want a town/village which offers at least 4 good restaurants, has a few places to walk in the evening and easy access to Ahr as well as the main wine regions of the middle Mosel and the minor wine regions around Trier. We would mainly stay during the week to keep hotel costs down (aiming for E70 a night for doubles) and to ensure access to vinyards etc. My thoughts to date are

Trier; possibly a bit too big and the better hotels are "way" expensive. But they have some fantastic Roman architecture/buildings and some wonderful vinyards

Traben-Trarbach; not such a great walking town (it gets very narrow with large trucks going through it) but the Jeugenstehl movement is great here.

Bernkastel; I've only been here twice on day trips and, of course, the wine library is a major pull here

Klotten; I don't like Cochem with the many tourists, pizza, icecream, silly hats, but I notice that Klotten (next door) is begining to have better facilities as it picks up the over flow of Cochem. Also the main roads from here make Ahr only 40 minutes away (from the other towns it will be 1 hour 15 minutes plus)

Urzig; such a pretty cliff side and it manages to make the 4 restaurants in one tiny village (just)

Assuming I don't want to go to the junction of the Mosel with the Rhine and the likes of Boppard/Rudesheim do not interest me (not for this trip) where would you stay?
