Bruttig-Fankel - Economy and Infrastructure

Economy and Infrastructure

Winegrowing and tourism characterize the village and belong inseparably together. In the constituent community of Bruttig, on the second weekend in August each year, the great Winemakers’ Festival is held. Well known steep-slope vineyards are Pfarrgarten, Götterlay, Rathausberg, Layenberg and Rosenberg. Raised here mainly is Riesling, although there are also Elbling and various other grape varieties, including some red.

In Fankel is found, besides the Fankel Weir, also the RWE Power AG main control centre, from which all hydroelectric stations at weirs on the German section of the Moselle are controlled.
