The motto "Mine & Wine" ® is a perfect match!
The name of the wine and slate town Fell derived from the Latin word Tal-Val, Vallis. The charming Fell Valley lies right on the Moselle. In the Middle Ages, the place was for centuries under the powerful Abbey of Trierer St. Maximin. The Benedictines was the major shareholder of today's wine-growing region of the Moselle. Vineyards with sacred names were a feature of special quality. The Maximiner Burgberg wine can be tasted on the Feller Markt. This takes place regularly on the third weekend of September. In 2018, the new panorama trail "Stein und Wein®" was opened with a length of around 5 km. If you are interested in mining, you can hike on the "Lehrpfad Schieferbergbau oder Grubenwanderweg". Passing 20 information boards, the trail runs past twelve historic mines, through the history and technology of slate mining. In the 19th century, slate mining began to flourish, and that left us with the legacy of the exhibition mine. It can be explored underground taking about one hour at 12 degrees Celsius. It´s a welcome change on hot days!
