Jugendstil walk

In the Off the Beaten Path tips I describe all the sights that are laid out in the Jugendstil walk. And also a few more details here and there that didn't make it to the 11 highlights.

Thanks to free internet in my room in the Jugendstil Bellevue hotel, I can make a start writing this page while I'm here.
With 3 nights in a luxury junior suite, this is a great base to explore up and down the river Mosel.
You will find many photo's of this hotel on the page because it is not only superb accommodation, it is also a Must See in its own right (Jugendstil architecture) and has a great restaurant.

The attraction of Traben-Trarbach

When along a river, every village is a tourist attraction, which do you choose for your stay? Traben-Trarbach, the double city (Traben on the north bank and Trarbach on the south bank) is definitely a good choice. It has a history of wealth and was once the 2nd winetrading center in Europe. Disaster (fire) was turned into assett (rebuilding in the Jugendstil style around 1900).
Yet Traben-Trarbach is not as touristy as for instance Cochem or Bernkastel-Kues that have countless people wandering about shops with cheap souvenirs. Maybe not cheap souvenirs, but definitely stalled out with no regard for the wonderful architecture around.
So, choose Traben-Trarbach!

    Lovely, interesting pages. I always enjoy a town when I can follow a walk with a brochure telling me about the sights, I think you get to see the best this way. Thought the Grave of Oskar Haussmann was done lovely.

    When I was in the USAF, I used to live in an apartment in the Huesgen warehouse next door. In one of the rooms of my apartment , I could open a "window" that was actually into the warehouse area where the wines were kept before being shipped out.

    Wow, I didn't know that Traben-Trarbach has that many Jugendstil houses :-) Thanks for the virtual walk :-)) Rheinland-Pfalz is famous for very friendly people, that's why I like the state. Oh, and the Kitt'che sounds like fun :-))

    You showed me a completely new side of Traben-Trarbach. I'm just preparing a Jugendstil walk in Darmstadt, so this was very interesting! Thank you!!

    Seems like Mr. Moehring was quite busy in this little town. In a half-whispering tone I must admit I really enjoyed this architectural tour.
