This fall, while crafting my Guide to the enchanting town of Bernkastel-Kues, I stumbled upon a truly one-of-a-kind wine tour experience! The mere mention of a Roman Wine Barge gliding along the stunning Mosel River amidst charming homes and endless vineyards left me eager to secure my spot. It's a journey that speaks for itself – a blend of history, natural beauty, and unforgettable moments.


Trust me; you won't need much convincing to add this to your bucket list! 🪣📝

One is in German, and the other has been translated.



Calling wasn't an option for me, so I sent them an e-mail at touristinfo@neumagen-dhron.de to book my spot. After securing my reservation, the payment was accepted via IBAN transfer. Remember to write both in English AND German! It's courteous to do so and will ensure you receive a response.


Parking:

We weren't sure where to park, so we parked a bit up the street at a random parking lot, but this one is closer, and I believe it was open on the day of.

Transportation:

There is no direct train that takes you into this area. I suggest driving.

Speaking of where to meet, you really can't miss it. We were running a little late, so there was also a very obvious long line of people waiting to indicate we were in the right place!

The boat was decently packed, with only narrow wooden benches. I'd suggest coming in pairs of two, so you don't have to share with a stranger! 🛶


Note: We did not have the option of rowing. I was slightly hoping we would be given oars.

We were blessed with stunning blue skies and perfect weather. 🌤️


With that in mind, wear sunscreen, and if you do decide to wear a hat, make sure it is tight enough to withstand the wind (or has a catch). I'd also strongly suggest bringing sunglasses and, depending on the weather, a jacket (wind). 👒🕶️



It was a peaceful scenic ride upriver with spectacular views.



A little over halfway, we stopped at the ruins of a Roman wine press! 🍇

There, we were given our first glass of wine and a bit of information about the region and Roman history. 🥂



We stopped there for about 30 minutes and then continued on our journey.

Be sure to bring a little cash!  💶


We were offered another glass for around 3/4 euros. 🙌

That about sums up this little excursion!


It was only around 2/3 hours long total, and most of it was spent relaxing and enjoying the scenery. The majority of the tour was held in German, but they did have some English translations for us.


If you're looking for more to fill your day, there's so much to do in the surrounding area: hiking, wineries, restaurants, castles, and historic sites!


German river towns never disappoint. 👌


Trier isn't too far away, either! 🚗💨
