Löf doesn't ring a bell. Seems like a very little town. (judging on the website of Krähenest it looks like it is very much loved by older people).

Which is also the case for travel in the region. Guided bus tours through the Mosel valley are very popular with the 60+ crowd here in Germany. I live in a house with lots of old people and I frequently find leaflets advertising trips in my mailbox.

If you are not in that age bracket, I really hope you find yourself with somebody your age. These bus tours aren't designed to be very action-packed or physically demanding in any way. Just watching the scenery glide by from the bus window can the biggest fun for Granny, but whether it you won't get bored is for you to decide.

Day 3 – Moselle Valley (included). The Moselle River is the longest and most well-known tributary river of the Rhine. It presents a unique and more serene picture as the river gently meanders between the hills of the Hunsrucks and the Eifels. We drive to the charming wine town of Cochem, dominated by the ancient and mighty Reichsburg Castle, perched atop its hillside overlooking the town.


Hi, sounds like you are more interested in the leisurely approach, but I wanted to add that this is a lovely region to tour through by bike. You'll often be riding right through the local vineyards that overlook the river. And when we were there, there were several "Fahrradtankstelle" along the way -- literally "bicycle gas stops" -- which were sort of backyard wine bars, where one could stop for a refreshment.

The route along the river is pretty easy, but if you want to go up to any of the castles, a little pedal power (or pushing) will be necessary.

Whether by bike or by bus, I wish you a good trip!

If it is very cheap you can always use these tours, as a way to get there, and to have a hotel. For the rest of the time, find your own things to do. (and in your own pace;))
