I'll be visiting Germany next month and I'm looking for more information on best ways to reach the middle Mosel from Frankfurt. It seems that a train goes between Frankfurt and Koblenz, and then from Koblenz to Bernkastel it looks like the only option is bussing it...is this true? If we rent a car, is it likely the places we stay will have a place to park it? We were interested in using trains as much as possible, and biking between the small villages to tasting appointments. Is this feasible? I definitely don't want to find myself having to take 4 busses and spend 4 hours to go somewhere that would otherwise take an hour. Any advice from other travelers who have been would be much appreciated! Thanks!
We stayed in Cochem and were able to take trains to many wine tasting appointments and vineyards. We also hiked through the vineyards for several days which I thought was very, very, valuable and it enabled us to understand the unique geology of all of the unique villages and single vineyard sites!
