Moselle River

Search Visit

The Moselle is one of four main rivers in Luxembourg; the others are the Sure, the Alzette, and the Our. It rises in France, near Epinal, then flows northwards. It forms the Luxembourg-German border for 45 kilometers in the southeast, before heading off northeast into the German interior. Boat trips along the Moselle are popular, and there is a 40 kilometer footpath that parallels the rivers course, beginning at Wasserbillig. Eventually, the Moselle empties into Rhine River at Koblenz, deep inside Germany.

The Moselle River Valley in Luxembourg is a state-subsidized wine-making region. The Grevenmarcher and the Stadtbredimus dams are situated on this Moselle.
