Alf, MoselJuly 25, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C
We've been pacing our journey and savouring the sights the Rhein had to offer, but today we put the air con on and got a good few kilometres under our belts. Upon reaching Koblenz at the confluence of the Rhein and Mosel rivers, we headed South West to follow the Mosel.
We are of the opinion that Rhein valley is to the Mosel valley what Scotland is to Wales. Both with incredibly beautiful scenery but on a different scale. To our joy, the Mosel river is partitioned by several locks so the flow is controlled. The dangers of a strong, fast moving current that stopped us canoeing all but a small section of the Rhein aren't present here.
After Will canoed at Alf, we travelled a short distance away from the Mosel to a free stopover beside closed down outdoor swimming baths and below yet another castle!Read more
