The Moselle Wine Train

The Moselle Wine Train, officially known as the Pünderich - Traben-Trarbach Railway, takes its passengers on a journey of six-and-a-half miles through the idyllic scenery of the Moselle Valley and the countryside surrounding it.

Journeys on the modern diesel trains begin at Bullay, at its junction with the line to Koblenz. From here the route commences southwards, passing through the curved Prinzenkopf tunnel to overcome the steepest hillside along the river. The train then emerges on the Pünderich Slope Viaduct, a long bridge that hugs the contours of the valley, following the path of the river. The wonderful views along this stretch of the line include the tidy terraces and rows of lush vineyards, the sparkling river below and the verdant woodland crowning the hillsides.

Before long the line reaches a flatter section of the valley, and from here the train begins to ascend up the branch line to the intermediate station at Reil. Keeping in close view of the river, the railway runs on through the town of Burg and the resort of Kövenig, before finally arriving in Traben-Trarbach, situated in a protective bend in the river.
