Zell, Zellerland and the Mosel River
Rhineland's Mosel River Valley is one of Europe's gems.
With its source in the Vosges Mountains of Eastern France, the Mosel runs through Nancy and Metz, becomes the border between Luxembourg and Germany then flows past the ancient Roman city of Trier. From Trier the Mosel cuts a winding course for 200 kms through the uplands of the Eifel and Hunsruck regions to meet the Rhine River at Koblenz, just downstream from the famed Rhine Gorges.
The Mosel is one of Europe's great wine growing regions with vineyards covering much of the steep slopes and river banks, as they have for thousands of years.
Living in a stylish villa on the Mosel was one of the best postings a Roman official could hope for!
