Mosel Chalets

Reviewed by Emily McDonnell

Three oh-so-romantic, minimalist cabins with huge glass windows, on the ridge of a valley, overlooking vineyards down to the river

From €120
Three cabins for 2-4
Pommern, 6h 40 from central Berlin


When I shut my eyes and imagine a romantic trip for two, I envision floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a cosy nook to curl up in with a glass of wine, and a view over treetops to the stars from bed. And this is exactly what you get when you stay at Mosel Chalets, three architecturally-beautiful cabins on the longest southern slope of the Mosel River. 

Owner Holger worked closely with an architect and carpenter to develop these ecologic escapes. He wanted to celebrate the simple beauty of the area, and has done this in wonderful ways throughout the chalets. Design is high-end, and the energy of the place allows you to feel completely at home. Perhaps because this is a family-run operation: from Holger’s sister and her husband to his mother and nephew, each plays an important role!

Spend your days biking along the river or hiking through vineyards, happy in the knowledge that you’re returning to these stunning hideouts.


I fell in love because...
  • The huge glass windows frame the stunning Mosel landscape, which starts on your doorstep
  • Mosel Chalets are run by a family, and they have created warm, relaxing houses with strikingly beautiful modern design
You must...
  • Get a bottle of Riesling from a local vineyard, and sip it on your terrace while watching the stars
  • Explore the surrounding rolling hills, lush forests and winding river by foot or by bike
You might dislike...
  • There’s a 5-night minimum booking period during high season
  • If you like sleeping with the window open, you might be bothered by the sound of trains passing (but they’re not frequent)

Introducing Holger and family! 

“We grew up in Pomerania on the Mosel, and wanted to give back to the area by offering stylish and sustainable holiday apartments!”

They love…

“That we’re a true family business! We put this ethos at the heart of everything, and have built ecological wooden holiday homes that provide a warm and cosy atmosphere.”

Holger and family’s insider tips 

  • The Hängebrücke Geierlay is a must! It’s a huge suspension bridge over a forest, and here it’s just you and the trees! 
  • Be sure to visit the city of Cochem with its beautiful timbered houses, old town, hilly landscape and castle. You should also head to the impressive Burg Eltz
  • The famous Moselradweg is - in our opinion - Germany’s best cycling trail! Bring your bike and go cruising 
  • Of course you have to drink a glass or two of award-winning Riesling and visit some of the region’s vineyards

The essentials.

Mosel Chalets is located at the top of a valley, overlooking the Mosel River. 

It's a 7-hour drive from Berlin. 

Pommern (Mosel) train station is a 2-minute walk away, but you need to catch a few regional trains from Frankfurt to reach it.
