Nearly every year, the Moselle overflows its banks, and there are many indications that these events will be repeated much more often in the course of climate change.
The residents live with recurring water in their cellars. Whether they get used to it can be doubted.
Many riverside roads along the Moselle are underwater for days and are impassable. We take the opportunity and cross the Moselle on the recently opened High Moselle Crossing and approach the town of Traben-Trarbach from the eastern side.
The banks are all flooded, and the cellars of the adjacent houses filled with water. Sometimes, you can only guess the course of the road. Many roads had to close.
On the way back, we have a beautiful view of the Moselle valley and the High Moselle Bridge. Here too, the floods in the bank area are well to be recognized.
Five days later, on the bank in Bernkastel-Kues, you can see that the water level has dropped again, and the water level of the Moselle goes back to normal. But instead, the storm Sabine races across the country and paralyzes air and rail traffic.
Pin it for later
