The German great outdoors: Triolago

As spring unfurls its vibrant colors and transitions into the warmer summer months, the country is brimming with outdoor adventures. Situated 30 minutes south of Spangdahlem and an hour north of Kaiserslautern along the old Roman wine route is Triolago. Sandwiched between three small lakes and the Mosel river, this is the perfect place to pitch a tent (or park a small RV) and enjoy all the activities Mother Nature has to offer in this corner of Germany.

Triolago has plenty of pitch sites along the different shorelines. If your camping gear didn’t make it across the pond with you, stop by your local base Outdoor Recreation. Most offer a wide selection of camping gear to rent or to purchase. Alternatively, if sleeping on the ground isn’t your thing, you can also look into renting a small camper van or RV. Or go for gusto and try glamping. It’s like camping, but posh. CampingPark Triolago offers visitors the chance to catch some shut-eye in a “Weinfass” or giant wine barrel.

For water sport enthusiasts, you can paddle around the lakes and enjoy the scenery of rolling green vineyards lining the banks of the Mosel. Need something more challenging? Head to Wakepark-Triolago and give wakeboarding a try. If you’d rather keep to dry land, challenge your friends or family to a few rousing rounds of miniature golf at Spielgolf. Or head up the hill to Erlenbis-Rodelbahn. This adrenaline-inducing alpine coaster winds its way down a tree-lined track and is fantastic fun for kids of all ages. You can also take a short 20-minute drive south and explore the majestic ruins in Germany’s oldest city, Trier.

Wine aficionados will be in heaven with the vast array of wineries in the adjacent village of Riol. Locally sourced and grown, these award-winning vintners produce some of the finest wines in the world. Taste your way (responsibly) through the different varieties and sample the area’s delicious local cuisine. Or simply sit under the shaded patio and enjoy the picturesque beauty surrounding you.

Whether it’s a weekend for camping and glamping or a short day trip, Triolago is the perfect spot to enjoy the spring and summer outside.
