    At the heart of the most winding section of the Moselle River, surrounded by vine-covered slopes, is the friendly winegrowing village of Kröv. The ancient Romans were already taken with this beautiful little patch of earth, and they brought with them the art of winegrowing, which continues to characterise the locality and landscape to the present day. Evidence of this century-old winegrowing culture, the old wine estates, monastery yards, half-timbered houses and the numerous findings from Roman times are still omnipresent today. Kröv is an important winegrowing community. The locality has made a name for itself well beyond Germany’s borders with the famous Kröver wine Kröver Nacktarsch. Not only does Kröv have excellent wines, it also has a heap of other attractions on offer. For years, the winegrowing village of Kröv has been one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Moselle. One can still experience true Moselle character here, as the village has preserved its authenticity, shaped by winegrowing.

    The Moselle is a river flowing through France, Luxembourg, and here in Germany. It is a left tributary of the Rhine, joining the Rhine at Koblenz. The Moselle is mainly famous for its wines made from the Riesling grape. The Moselle valley is what we hoped: peaceful, sleepy, romantic villages slipped between steep vineyards and the river; fine wine; a sprinkling of castles.

    Midden in het meest kronkelige deel van de loop van de Moezel, omgeven door met wijngaarden begroeide hellingen, ligt het gastvrije wijndorp Kröv, rechts hierboven op de foto. De oude Romeinen wisten dit mooie plekje op aarde al te waarderen. Zij introduceerden de wijnbouw, die tot op de dag van vandaag de plaats en het landschap kenmerkt. De getuigenissen van deze eeuwenoude wijnbouwcultuur, de oude wijnboerderijen, kloosterboerderijen, vakwerkhuizen of ook de talrijke vondsten uit de Romeinse tijd, zijn ook vandaag nog alomtegenwoordig. Kröv is een belangrijke wijnbouwgemeente. Door de beroemde Kröver wijn, de Kröver Nacktarsch, is dit stadje ver buiten de grenzen van Duitsland bekend geworden. Kröv heeft echter niet alleen uitstekende wijnen, maar ook een heleboel andere attracties te bieden. Al jarenlang is het wijndorp Kröv één van de populairste vakantiebestemmingen aan de Moezel. Aangezien het dorp zijn door de wijnbouw getypeerde authenticiteit heeft bewaard, kan men hier nog de echte flair van de Moezelstreek beleven.
