  • Traben-Trarbach

Enter the twilight zone in a labyrinth of historical underground vaults, some over 100 m long and a few extending over several storeys.

At the turn of the twentieth century the town of Traben-Trarbach found itself at the heart of the world wine trade. It is indeed remarkable that, at the time, this Art Nouveau town on the banks of the Mosel was second only to the great French city of Bordeaux when it came to wine distribution.

The reason for its extraordinary status lay in the huge demand for Riesling wine and the export market, especially to Great Britain and overseas. This led to over 100 wineries being founded.

In this context, the capacity of the wine cellars in Traben-Trarbach was increased in the second half of the 19th century. It was the only town in the Moselle municipalities to build underground vaulted cellars in its town center with a length of more than 100 meters.
