Other things to note

- Best months to visit are May to December (Christmas market).
- Closest Airport: The "Frankfurt"-Hahn airport is a 20 minute ride by car to our apartment.
- Boat rides run from about 10:30AM to around 4:30PM several companies operate trips to nearby Bernkastel-Kues, which take about 2 hours and typically cost around €13/€19 for a single or return. The ticket offices and boats are hard to miss, as they line the river banks close to the bridge. They all indicate their departure times and prices, allowing you to take a convenient pick.

We will happily supply baby cot and toys for the kids to play with if required.

The apartment is very nice and spacious. It is clean and cosy and located in the very centre of Traben and very close to the bridge over Mosel to Trarbach. There are a plenty of very good restaurants in a short walking distance from the apartment, great vineyards and all the museums. The street itself is closed for traffic for the most of the day. There is no parking at the apartment but a free public parking is just a few minutes walk away. Anette, the host, was really great. She works at a flower shop around the corner and leaves in the same building. She helped us with everything from getting our luggage to the apartment, to suggesting what to do, where to eat and even booked a restaurant for us. We really enjoyed staying at this apartment.

This apartment was immaculate, and light and spacious. Anette, who lives in the building is a gem. A few start-up items, such as paper towels and coffee, were stocked. The beds were very comfortable. The apartment is on the main pedestrian street of Traben-Trabach, but very quiet, and parking is just a few minutes' walk away - free 24-hr parking! This made for an excellent base for exploring the Mosel.

Jean's place is in a great location, and Traben-Trarbach is a beautiful little town. Both Jean and Anette were very helpful and had great communication, I highly recommend this property. We stayed there as 5 adults, which suited us fine but is probably more recommendable for a smaller group or mix of adults/children. Kitchen is equipped to cook own meals, and there are plenty of cafes/restaurants nearby. We also hired bikes down the road, highly recommend this also. We really did have a fantastic weekend here.

Traben-trabech was a wonderful location. Very dramatic setting at the bend in the river. Great cycle paths along the river! The apartment was super clean, fresh decor and v welcoming. We loved the location on a surprisingly quiet shopping street (with car access/parking frim 6pm to 9am). Perhaps because it is opposite the library Daytime parking locally was free and close-by. Annette was a wonderful host - so welcoming and helpful. Altogether wonderful!
