Mayschoß Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 36 photos
Mayschoß was first mentioned in 1106 as Meinscozen and is situated in part of the wide Ahr river valley, surrounded by a number of hills that offer great views across the valley such as Schwedenkopf, Akropolis, Ümerich as well as from the oldest castle of the Ahr Valley the Saffenburg.
Mayschoß not only has the oldest castle in the region but also the oldest registered Wine Cooperation in the world, which was registered in 1868. Because of economic problems in the late 19th century the wine coooperration “boom” was started here, that continued to other villages and towns along the Ahr Valley and Germany.
Today the town is a picturesque wine town, with lovely wine estates, restaurants, hiking trails and plenty to do year around. During the autumn time Spetember and October wine festivals coincide with the wine harvest and this is when the region becomes the busiest.
Mayschoß also serves as gateway to the Eifel Region and to the near by Nürburging some 30 kilometers away.
Another beautiful trail follows the course of the Ahr River. Signposted with an "A" it continues along the Ahr Valley... more travel advice
