  The Moselle
by MikeAtSea
 
 

Another river that flows through the province is the Moselle or Mosel in German. The source of the Moselle is at the western slope of the Ballon d'Alsace in the Vosges mountains. The Moselle flows through the Lorraine region, west of the Vosges. Further downstream, in Germany, the Moselle valley forms the division between the Eifel and Hunsrück mountain regions. Its total length from source to mouth is approximately 545 km. It serves as an important wine region and also here many castles can be seen on top of the hills. The Moselle ends in the Rhine River at the German Corner in Koblenz.
