burgeltzThe advantage of the steep slopes of the Moselle topography is the reason why there are so many castles and castle ruins to be seen. This is an area of Europe with the most castles. Some of the castles have museums giving insight into medieval life and showing cultural exhibits about the history of the region. Others have restaurants or cafes; some have medieval revelries to offer. Combine a walk through the romantic woodlands or the vineyards with a visit to a castle.
