Sundays????

by Riverview

We are two seniors who will be in Traben-Trarbach on Sunday, May 16.
What is open? What can we do with only one day? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Sundays????

Stores will be closed, the open Sunday was in March. But there is a Hundertwasser exhibition, you can walk along the river, and of course the restaurants are open and you can enjoy a glass of Mosel wine.
Something that's very nice: A boat trip on the Mosel.

Thanks for your post. What is the Hundertwasser? We are coming by boat. There will be 100 people, mostly seniors. Some will take an optional tour to Luxenbourg but we have been there several times.

Hundertwasser was an architect,mostly known for his very unusual and very colourful houses. They look like a mixture of oriental castle and playground for children, but are meant to be lived in.

I would certainly go to the exhibition.

Re: Sundays????

by Riverview

Five stars for you. Thanks so much. I love architecture and used to build very large housing projects. Can't wait to see the exhibit. Again, Thanks!!

Re: Sundays????

I'm sure you'll find the exhibition very interesting then. I don't know if you have a car, but if you do, there is a Hundertwasser house in Darmstadt,

a child care centre in Frankfurt

and further north a Ronal MacDonald house for families in Essen.

Re: Sundays????

We don't have a car this time. We are on a river ship with 100 senior citizens. Everyone is over 60. We only stop for one day and it is difficult to find things to do with such a short stop. Thanks for your post. I'll read more on line.

Travel Tips for Traben-Trarbach

The big fires in the 19th century

by ATLC

In 1857 and 1879 there were some big fires in the old centers of Traben and Trarbach, which almost completely destroyed them. At the end of the 19th century, a flurry of rebuilding started. Especially in Traben where in 1900 a new town hall was built, a railstation building in 1904 (where the Tourist Information is now situated) and then the Post Office in 1908.
On the other side of the river in Trarbach, there was a new Gymnasium (1905, unfortunately I didn't see that), and a wellness center Kurhaus Bad Wildstein (1901-1907).

Information from "Jugendstil in Traben-Trarbach" von Ines Wagemann The rebuilding started soon after the fires and resulted in some fine Jugendstil examples around the turn of the 19th/20th century.

Economic importance

by ATLC

Traben began to have great economic importance in the 19th century. The region was mainly agricultural and winegrowers from Trabach began to show interest in winegrowing in Traben. Even the fires of 1857 and 1897 did not stop the economic growth. The Trabachener winegrowers started a large winetrading center in Traben which gave the town a leap into wealth. Even more so than Trarbach itself. The population grew and tax income from the wine production rose as well. It is possible that the Weingesetz (Wine Act/Law) of 1892 caused this. This law said that it was allowed to add sugar to wine (resulting in higher alcohol %. The law was later reverted, it is now forbidden.). At the end of the 19th century a bridge was built between Trarbach and Traben. And thus at some point Traben-Trarbach was the 2nd largest wine trading center of Europe. Because of its wealth, Traben-Trarbach was the first in Germany to install electric street lighting.

Guides tours, also by the night-watchman

by globetrott

During the summer season there is a regular guided walking-tour of the town and it starts at 03.00p.m. every sunday and it will end with a wine-tasting.

Wellness center Hotel Bellevue

by ATLC

Well, here I go again, gushing about the hotel we stayed in. As guest of the hotel you can enjoy free use of swimming pool, steam room, sauna, rain shower, trepidarium, solarium, relaxation room. Open every day from 7 am to 11 pm. Robes and towels are all provided by the hotel (already in the room). You only need swimwear unless you're comfortable naked.

The Jugendstil architectural walk

by ATLC

In these tips I'll describe what I mentioned in my Things to Do Tip: The Jugendstil architectural walk in both Traben and Trarbach. The brochure can be bought for 2,50 Euro at the Tourist Office in Traben.
To save yourself some money, you could just save this tip with the map of the walk and the various points of interest and the following descriptive tips. Although to be honest, the brochure is very nice!
