|Location of the Oberfell community in the Mayen-Koblenz district|
Oberfell is a community on the Terrassenmosel in the district of Mayen-Koblenz in Rhineland-Palatinate . It belongs to the Rhein-Mosel community , which has its administrative headquarters in Kobern-Gondorf .
The community lies mostly in the slip of a Mosel bend on the Schwemmfläche of the Hunsrück leading-Upper Feller Bach and on ascending to Hunsrück slope.
Like other communities in the Lower Moselle, Oberfell is climatically favored in one of the warmest regions in Germany.
The municipality was already settled in prehistoric times. Archaeological excavations on the Bleidenberg above the village have documented a Celtic post-slit wall and a medieval picture position. It can be assumed that there was more intensive settlement during the Iron Age (approx. From 800 BC). Individual finds suggest the first settlement as early as the Neolithic. Isolated reading finds probably date from the early Paleolithic.

Culture and sights
The Bleidenberg above the village was secured by a Celtic post slot wall, which presumably encompassed the entire plateau of the mountain. A corresponding finding was secured during archaeological excavations in 2001 . The community had part of the wall reconstructed at the site of the find to illustrate the dimensions. On the Bleidenberg above the village there is a pilgrimage church , which the then Archbishop of Trier had built and consecrated in 1248.
The Catholic parish church of St. Nikolaus was built in the 14th century, the Romanesque church tower and its painting have been preserved. The old rectory is one of the oldest preserved buildings in the town. The local history museum of the community is set up on the upper floor.
The annual wine fair takes place on the first weekend in September. On the third weekend in October, the local bachelor association (Bachelor Association 1986 Oberfell eV) organizes its traditional bachelor party in the form of a one-day Oktoberfest. The serenade concert takes place one week before the summer holidays. Since 1248 there has been a procession to the Bleidenberg Church one week after Pentecost. The Oberfell cultural promotion regularly organizes concerts, theater, comics, etc. in the Birnbach wine barn, Mosella-Halle, St. Nikolaus parish church, pilgrimage church on the Bleidenberg, cultural site "Altes Pfarrhaus".

A modern monument in the town center is reminiscent of the Ortsneckname Moosrebber . The inscription explains: In 1917, the year of the war, the government called for leaves to be collected for cattle in need. For a hundredweight 18 marks were paid. The Oberfeller were the hardest working and collected 270 quintals ... and as the irony goes, the Oberfeller were henceforth called "Moos (geld) rebber" in the neighboring towns. The local Möhnen club was also called Fidele Moosrebber .
