You would like to experience the Moselle?
Great idea: The Moselsteig from Trier to Koblenz a majestic classic!
Enjoy the Moselle valley on wonderful hiking days between lovely wine villages, steep mountain slopes of Eifel and Hunsrück, once mighty castles of the Trier, Chur-Main and Cologne archbishoprics. Enjoy the Mosel hospitality at every turn. High-altitude trails with fantastic views of the Moselle river bends, vineyards, wooded mountain ranges, countless castles and the best panoramic spots above the water: your hiking week is full of highlights.
On your way from the former imperial city of the Roman Empire, Trier, to the Deutsches Eck (German Corner) in the heart of Koblenz, you will pass – always following the Mosel loops – charming wine-growing villages under Germany’s steepest vineyard, the Calmont, and the imperial castle of Cochem. On the way, you will have plenty of time to stop at the countless Straußenwirtschaften and wine cellars and get to know the world of winegrowers.
You will discover idyllic little half-timbered villages, hike through unique evergreen boxwood forests, climb rocky high trails and cross the steepest vineyards in Europe. Imposing rest areas and lookout pavilions await you with fantastic distant views and rustic winegrowers’ taverns invite you to enjoy the wonderful Moselle wine.
With Trier, the oldest city in Germany, the popular Eltz Castle, as well as the historic Roman hilltop settlements and temple complexes, cultural enjoyment is not neglected either. Look forward to fantastic hikes between the mountain ranges of the Eifel, the Hunsrück and the Mosel valley!
Please note: This shorter version of the tour omits the loop (5) on the map, the round trip from Cochem to Cochem. In addition, take the train for the last stretch (9) from Kobern-Gondorf to Koblenz. Parts (5) and (9) shown on the map are only included in tour variant 195a.
You will stay in real Moselan, regionally typical, very good middle class hotels of the 3*** category – always with their own wine magic.
Daily breakfast buffet or extended breakfast included
When booking half board incl. 5 x 3-course dinners, not in Trier and Koblenz, possibly in neighboring restaurants.
For the most part, you’ll hike on good trails and paths, graveled wine trails and secluded forest trails. The panoramic trails lead in sections over steep terrain and rocks, here surefootedness is required. The ascents and descents to the heights of the Moselle valley are easily manageable with good basic fitness. A shortening of the stages is possible almost at any time comfortably by train.
