West side of Germany

I know it's a fairly broad question but has anyone got any recommendations for nice towns/places of interest reasonably close to the west border of Germany?
Say, west of a rough line between Bremen, Frankfurt and Stuttgart. I'm thinking countryside / smaller towns rather than Citys. Probably not as far south as The Black Forrest
TIA Chris

Your area includes the Mosel so plenty of choice there. There is also a very good stelplatz at Saarburg with its waterfall in the middle of the town.

I can't blow up your map (campsite internet through a straw) but I like Cochem on the Moselle and Bacharach on the Rhine, both traditional 'tourist traps' but which interesting places aren't?

Looks like a tour along the Mosel looks like a good plan

Try our favourite stelplatz at Losnich. Great river side location with EHU if you want it. Our favourite weinmeister Jurgen Roth lives there, if you get a chance go to his wein keller.

Stepping just over your line to Hannover and Celle would be worthwhile

If you like cycling try the Stellplatz at Gangelt. Water park next door, restaurant next door. Its right on the border between Germany, Holland and Belgium so easy trips to say The Eifel and over to the Ardennes in Belgium. It's run as a type of enterprise to help disadvantaged people, some with learning difficulties. Great idea and great little spot.

Don't be an idiot all your life, take the odd day off.

Munster is nice and worth a visit.

I like to use big words which I don't really understand so it makes me look more photosynthesis!
