Klüsserath Things to Do

  • Burg Kluesserath

    The only real "sight" in Kluesserath is the fortress tower of the old "Wasserburg" I guess. It's privately owned though so you can't really tour this building. Outside you will find the old village well as well as an old tree which was used as a pillory in the good old days ;)

    The best thing here was that when we arrived after a walk through the vineyards we were brought into the wine cellar immediately - welcomed with a glass of wine of course ;-) It was nice because on a hot day it was great to know and to experience that the cellar has a 'natural' constant temperature of 10 degrees, in winter or summer :-)

    This village is small but quite long, hence there's a saying 'as long as Kluesserath'. Actually the village only seems to consist of the main street and a few side streets, a church and lots of wineries. Not much is happening here, I actually didn't even see a supermarket or a shop. But it's very relaxing and apparently the tourists come along with...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were invited to a posh summer festival at a countryside hotel (Landhaus St. Urban) where top chefs cooked and exclusive wines were served along with the food.

    Music, wine, sunshine, new German cuisine, fun ...

    Favorite Dish: The desert and the Michelin * potato salad were to die for!

Klüsserath Transportation

    By boat on the river. You get to see many locks, lovely scenery with nothing but vineyards and all this comes with wonderful German 'Schlager' Musik.... great fun ;-) Almost all small towns have little 'ports' where the boat stops!
    We left Klüsserath early in the morning on a sunday ... after a night with too much wine and little sleep it was perfect for waking up. As you can see little Max was the most excited of all of us though ;-)

    Excitement!

    If you are a beer drinker or if you don't drink at all you shouldn't visit a real wine family ... you can't really avoid drinking wine like water - but it's delicious ;-)))

Klüsserath Warnings and Dangers

  • Be careful in the vineyard!

    Be careful when you get the chance to climb into the vineyard. It's steep. Really steep! There are roads through the vineyards though so that you can walk through it even though you don't want to risk a broken ankle ;)Of course the picture here doesn't give justice - the typical problem, 'things don't look as steep as they are on pictures'.

  • Don't complain! It's a lot of work!

    Seeing how steep the vineyards are made me promise that I will never complain about wine prices again. It must be really hard work harvesting all the grapes!!! We only watched for a day and were impressed by how fast the people were with it actually but still... I wouldn't want to do it!

Klüsserath Tourist Traps

  • by sabsi Updated Apr 2, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way to Klüsserath we drove through Berncastel Cues. It looked like a big tourist trap to me, a town full of coaches and souvenir shops. I think I'd avoid this place and go to a more 'original' town at the river....

    Another tourist trap is cars stopping in the middle of a bridge to take a picture like this one ;-)

Klüsserath Favorites

  • A walk through the vineyard

    We walked trough the vineyard and the owners explained everything to us. It was a nice walk in the sun and it was very interesting to hear about all the wine making process ... of course samples were included as soon as we took a break ;-)

  • A lap around the Nürburgring

    On our way to the Mosel we drove through a region called 'Eifel'. It's beautiful, with hills and forests. As soon as left the Autobahn there was a sign saying Nürburgring 19 Kilometres. The Nürburgring is one of Germany's two Formula One tracks. We drove for a while, not going to Nürburgring. After 20 mts we saw the next sign: 'Nürburgring 19...
