... don't miss the Art Nouveau hotel „Bellevue“ in Traben-Trabach!
ART NOUVEAU WAS FASHIONABLE BEFORE THE FIRST WOLD WAR (1914-1918), and there are many great examples left around the globe (Barcelona, Vienna, Palma de Mallorca, Paris, Lüderitz, Udine). But a hotel, completely preserved in Art Nouveau is very rare and therefore the „Bellevue“ in Traben-Trarbach, situated directly on the shores of the Moselle river, is unique! Wherever you move in this turreted, castle-like building, you encounter the original, more than 110 years old architecture, decorations and even tools – from the painted-glass windows to the upholstery of the chairs in the restaurants, from the frescoes in the bar to to carpets in the lounge, from the lamps in the leisure rooms to the cutlery in the restaurant. The door frames? Wow! The champagne coolers? Another Wow! The hundreds of examples of elaborate woodcarving? Astonishing! The bedrooms? Museum-like and the owners still managed to combine their precious heritage with the utmost modern comfort. Just have a look at the two picture I show here! Room rates: More than US$ 100, less than US$ 200 (it depends on many factors). Conclusion: You have to see it, to believe it! Adress: An der Mosel 11. Phone: (0049) 65 / 41 70 30.
