When I think of Germany and the Rhine River, one of the things that comes to mind is good wine — Riesling, to be more specific. And, during my recent trip along the Rhine, I found that the Wine Village (Weindorf) in Koblenz is one of the most enjoyable places to enjoy a glass of this liquid gold.
The fact that the Wine Village is situated along the Rhine River’s edge is incredibly appropriate because it is a perfect setting. But, even if it weren’t, it still is a wonderful place to sip your Riesling, dine on regional specialties (how does pork steak with mushrooms a la creme, served with a fresh salad and berner rösti (potatoes) sound?), and relax in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
Actually, people have been coming here since 1925 to enjoy themselves, celebrate festive occasions, and celebrate the wine industry that has brought such prosperity and happiness to the region.
And, since Koblenz is at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers, you get to enjoy the best of both cultures, whether that’s food, music, dancing, or wine, at the Wine Village.
