Camping Along Mosel Valley Germany
On the first day of this 3-day itinerary in the Mosel Valley, drive to Germany, arrive on your camping, and unpack. Along the River Mosel, there are many little camping areas where you can stay the night.
Enjoy exploring the camping site and the village where you’re at. After this, it’s time to do some groceries, cook dinner, play games, and watch a wonderful sunset.
When you wake up, you can enjoy the wonderful view over the river, and you can even spot some castles, as this area is known for its many castles. So keep your eyes open! There was even one across from our camping.
Pro Tip ➳ Don’t want to go camping? Check out this lovely hotel along the Mosel.
Visit Burg Eltz
On the second day of this trip to Germany, it’s time to see one of the most impressive castles along the Mosel valley: Burg Eltz. Burg Eltz is a wonderful 850-year-old medieval castle located in a green valley.
With its robust stones, 7 towers, and red details, this incredible castle will make you feel like you are in a Harry Potter movie.
Walk around the wood surrounding the castle, take a guided tour, and feel like a princess, strolling through the different rooms.
Because of this princess feeling, Burg Eltz is my favourite attraction in this Mosel Valley itinerary 🥰.

Cochem, The Cutest Village Along Mosel Valley In Germany
After a morning-visit to Burg Eltz, it’s time for lunch. Therefore, pay a visit to Cochem, a charming village on the Mosel banks, and the perfect spot to enjoy the German kitchen.
Cochem is surrounded by vineyards and hiking trails. But besides the wonderful surroundings, the village of Cochem itself is also very nice.
The villages’ center takes you back to medieval times, with the narrow streets, colorful wooden houses, slate roofs, town gates, and a wonderful town square.
Wander around the town, sit down for a German lunch, and don’t forget to try the famous Riesling wines made in the area.
Along the Mosel, there is a nice walking path decorated with flowers and benches. Meanwhile, walking here, you can see the pristine Rechsburg castle, the main landmark of Cochem. Take a boat trip or a walking tour to get to know this diverse village.
Pro Tip ➳ Go on a 7-Day Road Trip Around Bavaria & Tirol
The Geierlay Bridge is one of the longest suspended walking bridges in Europe. Therefore, it is a must-see attraction in this Mosel Valley itinerary, with over 360 meters in length and 100 m in height. As the last highlight of this 3-day camping trip, the Geierlay bridge is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a nice hike.
Sniff up the clean air, see how far you can look, and enjoy the green natural environment. The thick forests surrounding the bridge make this places even more special, as you would never expect there to be a huge suspended structure!
Since 2015 the Geierlay Bridge connects the villages of Mörsdorf and Sosberg. The bridge is part of a wonderful hiking trail through the German greens. And since it opened, it had over 300.000 visitors.
This might not be your favorite attraction for people with a fear of heights because the bridge is very high and is a bit shaky. But it is definitely a special experience with a spectacular view!
Park your car in Mörsdorf and walk 1,8 km (about 20 minutes) to get to the suspended bridge. The Geierlay bridge is free of cost, so the only thing you need to pay is parking costs. Moreover, there are no shops or bathrooms at the bridge. In other words, make sure to bring some snacks and go to the bathroom before you start walking.

Bonus: Grain Fields
If you visit the Mosel Valley in Germany, I highly advise you to drive through the wonderful countryside. Skip the main highway and drive through the cutest little villages, and most importantly, let yourself be surprised by what you find! Like grain fields as far as the eyes can see.
