Everything we know about this property is just what we wanted. However, due to serious medical issues, we had to cancel our trip. Herr Bauer has been very understanding.
Peaceful and relaxing break
A return visit for us to Haus Margarete, and it didn't disappoint. We enjoyed renewing our acquaintance with Erden, and especially with Ingrid, Olaf and Anastasia at Zur Ratsschenke, who looked after us and fed us so very well. This lovely little house has everything you need for a stress-free holiday.
Couldn't be better
We had a really lovely stay at Haus Margarete. The house is beautiful and beautifully kept - very clean with everything that we needed.
Ingrid and Olaf from Ratsschenke looked after us very well, and we ate there every day except on the day when they were closed.
We had some long walks through the vineyards but otherwise it was a totally relaxing stay. We were blessed with good weather but we would have enjoyed ourselves even if it had rained.
We hope to return next year (if we can wait that long!)
Pictures don't do it justice!
This was the perfect little cottage to explore the mosel valley. It was the cutest place, and it had so much charm.
Magical Margarete Haus
We loved this charming house and its location at the heart of the attractive village of Erden
Highlight of our trip
My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old in October 2013, and we still consider this one of the highlights of our trip. We so often stay in uninteresting hotels, but were SO GLAD we chose to stay in a historic home in a charming, beautiful village. The restaurant down the street was excellent, and we so enjoyed getting our breakfast rolls and milk delivered to the door step! Everyone we worked with was very friendly and helpful. It was a great size - two bedrooms and a nice sized living room. And all of the beams and slanting ceilings? Well, we may ave bumped our heads a time or two, but it was part of the charm. We'd definitely stay here again, and also recommend it to others.
Located just 8km from both Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach and a 30 minute taxi ride from Frankfurt-Hahn (or one hour by car from Luxembourg Airport), it is in the heart of the Middle Mosel region, Germany's premier wine-country, yet away from the noisy crowds. Erden is a quiet village (pop. ca. 400) of vintners who produce the best and most distinctive Rieslings in the heart of the renowned Middle Mosel region, including Erdner Treppchen. Explore this culturally rich and beautiful region from the convenient location of Erden and start and end each day in the peace and charm of our cozy holiday home. Enjoy bicycling along the Mosel on level, dedicated bike trails to neighboring villages. Summer and fall offer the most activities: wine festivals, music festivals and outdoor activities like walking and bicycling. For a special treat, come spend Christmas on the Mosel in Germany and attend the Weihnachtsmarkt at Bernkastel.
Other Activities: Wine-tasting; Mosel river cruises; castle tours; rowing.
