"Set high on a woodland plateau above the wine village of Leiwen Landal Sonnenberg commands some of Europe’s most breathtaking views across the stunning Moselle Valley on one side and the rugged Hunsruck Forest hills on the other. Complete the exquisite setting with great facilities this is perfect for a European family holiday to remember."
Together with Sonnenberg’s comprehensive range of amenities, including a indoor swimming complex, this is a fantastic area for outdoor pursuits. The glorious countryside lends itself superbly to parachute jumping, gliding, hot-air ballooning, horse riding and boat trips along the Moselle. Those looking for more sedate pastimes will find the Moselle’s slopes and plains bursting with wonderful walks, castles and friendly, picture-postcard wine villages hosting unique timber-framed architecture, none more magnificent than medieval Bernkastel-Kues. A lovely walk from here leads to Traben-Trarbach, home of healing spring waters and the fine Roman antiquities and traditional local artefacts of the Mittelmosel Museum. No visit to Moselle would be complete, however, without sampling the famous wine - the locals celebrate wine festivals from early spring to late autumn and tastings and tours abound. The regional beer is also delicious - a glass of the renowned Brauerei Kloster Machern is a must! Close by, other unmissable treats include Trier (33km), Germany’s oldest city, and the game and adventure park Eifelpark at Gondorf (49km). The Gemstone Route, picturesque Luxembourg, Fischbach copper mines and Hermeskeil Air Museum - boasting a café in a Concorde - are among numerous attractions within easy reach.
