A beacon of the Moselle

Neef lies in the middle of such famous vineyards as "Frauenberg", "Rosenberg", and "Petersberg". Wines of exceptional quality thrive in the sun-drenched steep slopes. The smallest Mosel loop with the Neefer Petersberg on top is one of the river's most scenic sections. Even today, architectural monuments such as the Petersberg Chapel on the only high-altitude cemetery on the Mosel and the Eulenköpfchen (Owl's Head), the Neefer Castle and the Stuben Monastery bear witness to the long history of the village.

Therefore, the initiative "Living Mosel Vineyards" declared the Neefer Petersberg a beacon of the Mosel in 2019. Explore this magnificent Mosel landscape by bike or experience the Neefer Petersberg beacon hike. At the Wine and Local History Festival, which is celebrated every year on the third weekend in August, and at the Street Wine Festival on the fourth weekend in September, you will get to know the people who live where others go on holiday. You, too, can be fascinated by the unique natural and cultural landscape in the Calmont region.

The Calmont region is a real hiker's paradise, especially in the flatter and steeper vineyard sites - almost always with a fantastic view of the Mosel loop. Hike the "Kulturweg Calmont-Region" or the "Calmont-Klettersteig" is both a highlight and an insider tip, leading you with partly alpine challenges between Eller and Bremm on 200 to 300 metres of altitude above the Mosel across the steepest vineyards in Europe. The Calmont region is also connected to the Moselsteig. "Stage 15: Zell - Neef" & "Stage 16: Neef - Ediger-Eller".

The picture was taken in the Bremmer Calmont-the steepest vineyard in Europe. You have a view of what is probably the most famous Moselle loop.
