Cycling the Mosel river with our dog.

Dec 7, 2010
Dog friendly site, the first time we have taken a dog abroad, 2yr old Lurcher and still enjoyed our cycling.

We can highly recommend Campingplatz Erden; Erden, Germany in the Mosel Valley, nice views over the river looking at the hillside vineyards. Very clean, well run site, free wi-fi and for dog owners a dog station (free bags) and bins. It is a ACSI site 19 euro, we were on a larger riverside pitch so paid a 3 euro supplement, so 22 euro a night, booked and ‘saved’ for us by our German friends, but well worth it, my spare hook up lead was needed, was 10mtr short, 16amp, blue plugs. At the end of the site is a good sized grass area for dogs to run and another dog station, easy to get to the river with the dog for his paddle, we drank the Mosel wine he drank the Mosel river! Lidl, Aldi and another large supermarket are 6 miles down the road towards Bernkastel – Kues on the Kues side of the river.

The small wine village is just a short walk with some nice walks through the vineyards. In the village is a greengrocer, post office and lots of wine suppliers and a very nice bar with meals, the site shop has just a few basic items, milk, bread and local wine; the site bar is also very good with nice meals

The Mosel cycle path runs past the site, so take your bikes. A round trip of 18 miles to Traben-Trabach enjoying the views and town. About 15 miles the other way to Bernkastel and back which is another very nice old town on the river side.

Kloster Machern, an old abbey then convent, now a brewery, bar/café, museum, is 4 miles towards Rachtig, nice meals and their own brewed Weiss Beer.

So, if you are thinking of the Mosel Valley for a holiday a very good site to stay at and not far off the A60 and just over 290 miles from the Euro Tunnel terminal.
