Ellenz Poltersdorf is a traditional wine village on the Mosel river, in an area known as the Mosel-Krampen (the bend in the Mosel). Surrounded by vineyards, it does not have any tourist/gift shops and is not a common stopover for large coach tours, so if you want to see the real Mosel and experience the wine producing culture, Ellenz is the place for you. If you love to walk, hike or cycle, there are plenty of wonderful routes and paths to explore. Ellenz is not the best location for children, but rather for the 30-70 age group that likes a relaxing vacation sitting in traditional vintner’s yards enjoying a glass or two of fine Riesling or just strolling around to enjoy the wonderful landscape. However, it is centrally located 9kms from Cochem (reached by a bus service) and from Cochem you can board a train to either Trier or Koblenz, so for those who also like to visit tourist towns it is easily doable.

Ellenz-Poltersdorf is a wine-growing village with many vintners, located across the beautiful Beilstein. Nice walks in the vineyards and vintner’s visits would be recommendations.

In 1815 Ellenz-Poltersdorf was assigned to the Kingdom of Prussia at the Congress of Vienna, belonging until 1945 to the Rhine Province. Since 1946, it has been part of the then newly founded state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
