I am using moderncv classic and I want to achieve something similar to this, where the address is part of a section. However, I want it to have at the left side like it is default in moderncv classic style. I tried several ways, but none were quite good:
Linebreaks inside moderncv did not work and creating an empty item with only the address info (e.g. street) as description was not properly aligned.

So, how do I get the address as a cventry field?

CV with address

  • After I cleaned the temporary created files, it seems to work now with an cvitem{}{Loong Name} Jan 21, 2016 at 22:54

Apparently, after deleting the tempoary files, it works now with the following

 \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}        %
 \section{Personal Data}
 \cvitem{Address}{Looong Name}
 \cvitem{}{Long Street}
 \cvitem{}{Postal Code + City}
