    Jugendstil walk- no.1 Villa Breucker

    Villa Breucker, Traben-Trarbach
    4 more images

    Architect Bruno Moehring built this house for the Breucker family in 1905. It originally had a Pagode roof but this was destroyed in World War II. The villa faces the river Mosel (on the Traben side) and with it's pagode roof it would have been reminiscent of Japanese architecture. Moehring liked to play with Far Eastern themes. Beautiful red, green tiles. Also note the lamp on the side of the house.
    This house is currently privately owned. A pity, because you can't look inside where more Jugendstil details are undoubtedly to be found.

    Address: An der Mosel 7, Traben-Trarbach

  • Take a walk through the forest

    A nice walk in the forest is really great. Start by going to the stairway entrance between "Top Schuh" in Brucken strasse (Bridge Street). Walk up the stair through the vineyards and to the Gravenburg (Kommanderhause) castle up on the hill.

    From there you walk to the Gravenburg car park and up the road. There are a few entrances to the forest and it's really hard to miss these. Once you get to the forest, take in the pine smells and mountain biking routes all the way back down to the mosel.

    It's worth the walk - see photos attached.

    Old instruments for the work in the vineyard

    Old instruments

    I liked seeing these instruments in the street, because some of them were even used when I was a kid. As the vineyards in the Mosel valley are rather steep, it is not always possible to use machines.
    today, lots of these instruments like the funny backbach are used for flowers.

    Take a walk from Traben-Trarbach into the hills to the village of Starkenburg.
    It's like an eagle nest above the river and you have excellent views on the city of Traben-Trarbach
