German Village on the Mosell River
After crossing into Germany (Customs was just a check of passport and green card) and crossing the Mosell River at Trier, we entered the vineyard country. On both sides of the Mosell, vineyards stretch from the water's edge to the tops of the hills.
The drive from Schweich to Bernkastel-Kues was the loveliest countryside that we have seen up to now. Dotted along the river are small villages with the characteristic church steeples. The roads were nice and the countryside quiet and inviting.
