the Mosel (Latin Mosella (the small Maas (=Mosa), French la Moselle) rise at the Col de Bussang above Rupt sur Moselle in the Vogesen on 735 m height and flow after 544 km at the German hit a corner in Koblenz from left into the Rhine. The middle discharge at the delta amounts to 290 m ³ /s, with which after Mosel the Aare, and still before Main and Neckar, which are second largest tributary of the Rhine.
The section of the Mosel up to the inlet of the Saar before Trier is called briefly in Germany Obermosel; it does not concern however geographically any longer the upper run of the river. The range from Trier to Briedel is called Mittelmosel.The section between Briedel and the delta in Koblenz is the so-called Untermosel. Characteristically the Mäander , in particular in the area between Bremm and Cochem , are the “Cochemer staples”. Are typical to the entire Untermosel the vineyard terraces. Therefore callsone this range also “Terrassenmosel”.

the name Mosel leads itself off from the celtic name form Mosea over Latin Mosella, a reduction form of Mosa, which represents designation at the beginning of parallel flowing river of the Maas to latin. ThatRoman poets Ausonius you already set in 4. Century a literary monument.
in particular France was interested in a trafficability of the Mosel with larger ships, in order to be able to tie up the lothringischen industrial areas. Itreached by contract with the Federal Republic the canalization of the Mosel and confessed to Germany in response the so-called loop solution on the upper Rhine too (instead of a building of far of the Rhine side channel). 1967 became the Mosel from Metz to Koblenz as navigation road with 14 air-locksreleased. For the navigation the Moselkommission with seat is responsible in Trier. Apart from goods shipping trip ships between the routistic partly very intensively opened wine villages and small small towns of the central and Untermosel cross.
the barrage weirs are in such a manner built that itself at an end weir a shipping sluice with fish stairs andat the other end a hydro-electric power plant finds. The pilot weirs and hydro-electric power plants in German area are steered in the central control room with Fankel.
the Moseltal orders over a continuous cycle track, from Palzem at the of Luxembourg border to Koblenzthe way on 435 km is continuous passable. Each year on Sunday after Whitsuntide is this possible for daily on 140 km between Schweich and Cochem also auto-free in the context of the “Happy Mosel” -. Connection in other directions offer the Lahn valley cycle track, the Rhine cycle track and the Ruwer timber forest cycle track.
A number of remarkable castles and ruins zieren the heights over the Moseltal, also an inspection route by ship are worthwhile themselves.
The landscape of the Mosel is coined/shaped by the adjacent vineyards. Particularly impressively they show upwithin the range of the Mittelmosel, where at - at the Calmont between Ediger Eller and Bremm up to 65 degrees - steep the slate slopes above all Riesling is cultivated. Here grow singular wines, which are coined/shaped of multilayered mineralty. The viticulture at thatMosel is at present in a phase of paging. With much commitment and high-quality training the recent winegrower generation takes distance from the mass production of old days and concentrates on the production of individual point plants of the Rieslings, to that here inworld-wide einzigartes quality potential possesses.
