Kayser Mansion

Wine. History. Experience.

500 years of wine culture in the underworld

The property opposite our guesthouses holds a very special treasure: the 500-year-old wine cellar of the former Kayser winery.

The house was built in 1762 and is one of the most beautiful rococo houses on the Moselle. The former winery with its baroque residential house has been in our family’s possession since 2015. We renovate gently, heritage-conscious and in awareness of the need to preserve the monument, which is the only Baroque secular building in the district of Trier that has been preserved in its original state. Part of the property is inhabited by us.

Under the barn in front (the quarry stone façade is opposite our guest houses) is the historic cellar. It is part of the „Traben-Trarbacher Underworld”. Access is exclusively reserved for our house guests.

We would be happy to guide you through the old walls on a tour. Immerse yourself in times long past and view quarry stone facades and cellar walls that have been part of the old town unchanged for centuries. Be amazed about the vine-covered arcades of the leafy courtyard with the oldest vine in town and enjoy the unique atmosphere of sitting in the middle of the city in an oasis surrounded by castle walls – while enjoying a good glass of Moselle wine.

Our seniors Margit & Horst Rees have set up a cellar museum worth seeing in the wonderful underground vaults, where you can learn how wine used to get from the barrel to the bottle. Many original barrels, old winemaking machines and equipment and a real bottling plant bring the subject of wine much closer to you.
