Celebrate Labor Day weekend with Moselfest Winningen

Celebrate Labor Day weekend with Moselfest Winningen

For 10 fabulous days, the Moselfest in Winningen (near Koblenz) is a festival of fun for the whole family. Considered the oldest wine festival in Germany, the Moselfest is an impressive event with a jam-packed program of activities to keep the whole family entertained.

The entire town transforms into a festival paradise as romantic alleyways are decorated with flags and flowers and the wine fountain is brought to life.

Enjoy river cruises, theater events, sample a few of the 150 different vintages available at the wine market and parades starting August 25 and running through September 3.

The crowning jewel of Moselfest is a fireworks show on the last day. While the fireworks are stunning to see, the setting of the show in a canyon of the Mosel River makes for a heightened experience as the explosions echo off the mountainside around you.

It’s the perfect way to celebrate Labor Day weekend and transition into fall!
