Moselle

Moselle, The River, rises in the Vosges mountains, and flows north-westerly till reaching Toul, after which it takes an easterly turn and traversing Luxemburg and Rhenish Prussia enters the Rhine at Coblenz. It has a total course of 315 miles, in about a third of which it is navigable. The Meurthe is the chief tributary on the right, and the Orne on the left. Metz, Thionville, and Trier (Treves), are situated on its banks. The country through which it flows is celebrated for its wines.
