Grevenburg Castle Ruins
The Grevenburg Castle was built around 1350 by Count Johann III, a son of the legendary Countess Loretta, and was the ancestral seat of the counts of Sponheim until 1437. During the turmoil of the wars in the 17th and 18th centuries, the castle changed hands 13 times. In 1734, it was taken and destroyed by the French. You will find a cozy castle tavern and castle garden in the ruins, which provide an excellent view
of the Mosel River.
Middle Mosel Museum
Goethe, the Prussian King Friedrich-Wilhelm IV and the French poet Apollinaire were once guests in the imposing Baroque villa of the Trarbach merchant family Böcking, which now houses one of the museum treasures of the Mosel region. This splendid patrician house, which was spared by the city fire of 1857, was built around 1755 by the wealthy merchant and state cashier Johann Adolf Böcking according to plans drawn up by the ducal senior government building officer of Rhineland-Palatinate-Zweibrücken, Hauth, in the Baroque style of Trier. Today, it provides a good example of the lifestyle of a wealthy patrician family of the 18th and 19th centuries and exhibits a unique collection of furnishings not to be found in other museums in the Rhineland-Palatinate.
The more than 20 exhibition rooms of the Middle Museum, which house the lifework of the collector and homeland artist Dr. Ernst Willen Spies, not only contain precious furniture and works of art from three centuries, but also an extensive collection about the history of the city of Traben-Trarbach. You will also discover archaeological findings from the Roman and Franconian periods, as well as objects of rural domestic culture and displays about the history of the handicrafts and the city trade guilds. The permanent exhibition is supplemented by the architectural plans and archaeological findings made during the excavations of the ruins of the former French Mont Royal fortress conducted during the 1930’s. The exhibition also includes a famous model of the Grevenburg Castle.
Visit the Mont Royal Fortress Ruins
Starting in 1687, the French “Sun King” Louis XIV engaged his brilliant architect and master builder Vauban to build a huge fortress on the peninsular mountain high above Traben. The fortress provided space for 12,000 soldiers and 3,000 horses.
However, only eleven years later, the French destroyed the fortress themselves in 1698 after the Peace of Rijswijck. Only during the last century were archaeological excavations conducted on Mont Royal under the direction of the homeland artist, Dr. Ernst Willen Spies, using original drawings from Parisian archives. Today, only a few remnants of the once mighty walls, casemates and cellar vaults are still preserved. The plans of the fortress and archeological findings it from are on display in the
Middle Mosel Museum. (Just 30 meters from our Apartment)
During the season, guided tours through the fortress ruins are routinely conducted. Special, individual tours are available for groups.
Excursion into the Underground of Traben-Trarbach
As Traben-Trarbach was once considered to be, together with Bordeaux, the largest wine trading city in Europe, extensive sections of the city feature corresponding underground vaults, some of them multistoried and up to 120 meters long, a highlight of these dimensions not to be found in any other Mosel community.
During this “unique city tour,” you will learn about many interesting aspects of wine and the wine making process. The tour costs EUR 5.00 including a glass of wine.
