Nature

The Mittelmosel-Kondelwald region is distinguished by a diverse natural landscape. On the one hand, it is situated at the edge of the South Eifel Mountains, with their typical forests and peaks, and on the other, its landscape is characterised by winegrowing traditions, with vineyards, slate soil and the winding Moselle River.

The region’s main symbol is the 2.500-ha Kondelwald, which is located in the foreland of the Vulkaneifel, between Bengel in the south and Bad Bertrich in the north, and was once part of the “Cröver Reich”. With its vast flora and fauna, the Kondelwald is the perfect place for long, restful hikes or walks, e.g. to the state health resort of Bad Bertrich or the winegrowing towns along the Moselle, such as Kröv, Reil and Kinheim.

At the base of the Kondelwald is the Alftal Valley, where enchanted forests and the idyllic course of the Alf River make for a romantic ambience. Right on the shores of the Moselle, winegrowing has been the primary focus for generations. The meandering Moselle, the flora and fauna, the romantic villages, and the vineyards scattered all up the hillside create an unparalleled setting, giving the Moselle region its unique atmosphere. 

A region perfect for recreation, leisure activities, and expeditions.
