Valley (German: Moseltal) is a region in north-eastern
France, south-western Germany, and eastern Luxembourg, centred on the
river valley formed by the Moselle. The Moselle runs through, and
along the borders of, the three countries, and drains a fourth,
The Moselle has been promoted as a quality white wine-producing region
since the nineteenth century and "Moselle wine" is produced in three
countries; it is the heart of the
Luxembourg wine industry, and is
also of the German Mosel region, and there are some vineyards in
France. The Moselle has developed a strong tourism industry around its
reputation as a rural idyll. The tourism sector is most prominent in
the Luxembourgian and German parts of the Moselle.
Luxembourg's part of the valley roughly corresponds with the central
and eastern parts of the cantons of
Grevenmacher and Remich. Almost
all of the lowest-lying communes in
Luxembourg lie along the Moselle.
There are no large towns in Luxembourg's part of the Moselle valley,
but the main settlements are Grevenmacher, Mondorf-les-Bains, Remich,
and Wasserbillig, all of which have populations in excess of 2,000
