Zell / Germany
The town of Zell, since time immemorial the main town in Zell Hamm, lies at the eastern apex of this particularly evenly shaped Moselle bend on the narrow edge of the river. Behind it, the vineyard-covered slopes rise quickly, as far as the forests with which the Hunsrück plateau begins. The former independent districts of Kaimt and Merl belong to Zell.
Nature lovers will enjoy the magnificent panorama view of the unique river landscape, the steep vineyard slopes and the condel forest, and discover the natural features of the Moselle landscape during extended hikes.
The Zell city center with its small, charming boutiques and numerous restaurants, cafés and ostrich farms invites you to a leisurely stroll.
Wine connoisseurs not only have in Zell the opportunity to sample delicious wines (for example Zeller Schwarze Katz), but can also inform themselves about the Zell land as the center of the Moselle wine culture and the production of the wine (for example, in case of ruistic wine tasting or interesting wine teaching paths).
Visitors who are interested in art history also have a lot to discover: the late-Gothic residential palace in Zell, the 1000-year-old knight's castle "Arras", the "Marienburg" and much more. Narrow streets, historic half-timbered houses with steep gables and interesting churches are witnesses of the Moselle history. The various museums also provide insights into past worlds. The following are available to choose from: the Wine und Town Mmuseum Zell, the castle museum of Arras Castle or the town museum Mittelstrimmig.
As the diverse traditions and customs are still cultivated today, visitors will be able to experience the region's many wine-tasting, street and home festivals of the region.
