The Moselle is a river flowing through France, Luxembourg and Germany. It is a left tributary of the Rhine, joining it at Koblenz. In the upper right quadrant of this orthorectified image, the two rivers can be seen at their convergence by Koblenz, with the Moselle to the left and the Rhine to the right. A small part of Belgium is also drained by the Mosel through the Our.

In Germany, downstream of its source in the Vosges Mountains of France, the Moselle Valley forms the division between the Eifel and Hunsrück mountain regions. Its total length from source to mouth is approximately 545 km.
