Moselle and Eifel Trail

Beautiful views, Roman paths & Moselle wines.

An incredible combination of panoramic views, nature and culture are offered on both of these quality footpaths. From the delightful, little wineries in the border triangle, you will discover the charming Moselle and Saar scenery along from the old Roman roads until you get to Trier. This pleasant metropolis by the river Mosel charms its visitors with its lively old town and 9 UNESCO world heritage sites, which you will explore whilst on a circular walk through Trier. A boat ride on the Mosel offering many panoramic views is a must before you continue your week’s walk with a magnificently diverse stage along the Eifel Trail through wild and romantic nature and finally by crossing a suspension bridge into the idyllic Kyll valley.

Details about the hiking holiday on the Moselle and Eifel Trail

What you absolutely must have experienced on the Moselsteig and Eifelsteig Trail? The views over the rivers Moselle and Saar, the old Roman roads and the historic city of Trier. Just like the boat tour on the Moselle or a wine tasting at one of the numerous wineries. But basically, with Eurohike, you determine the pace of your hiking holiday. This leaves enough time for breaks and relaxing hours of leisure.

Highlights of the two hiking paths Moselle and Eifel Trail

  • Trier, the oldest city in Germany: The Moselle metropolis of Trier has a whopping nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Just immerse yourself in the lively old town and let the street life work its magic on you. A Moselle boat ride is included in the vacation.
  • Countless Views: The daily tours run mostly on panoramic paths high above the river Moselle. Extensive views of the Moselle river valley with its wine terraces are guaranteed.
  • German quality hiking trails: Both the Moselsteig Trail and the Eifelsteig Trail have been awarded German quality hiking trail status, which differ from other paths in terms of the quality of the trails and the sophisticated route system.
  • Exquisite Moselle wine: Germany’s fifth-largest wine-growing region offers the best conditions for juicy grapes and thus for exquisite wine. The Elblingwine from the Moselle region is known and loved all over Europe. Find out more about our hiking holidays for wine lovers.

Itinerary

You set off on your week’s walking holiday from the small wine growing district, Perl in the Saarland and you then walk along the river Mosel, which is only separated from the Luxemburg’s border town, Schengen, by the river Mosel itself.

Hotel example: Hammes

The start of your week’s walk gives you a view across the border triangle to Luxembourg and France. Your route takes you from the delightful wine-growing region via quaint forests and extensive fields in the Palatinate wine village, Palzem, which welcomes you with famous wineries and extensive vineyards. There you will meet again the river Moselle and enjoy a glass of the best Elbling wines.

After visiting the double towered Helfant cathedral, you walk along the paths offering great views and short but steep ascents along the flourishing meadows and forests. Enjoy the view of the river Mosel before you reach the next wine district by a crossroads.

Today you will switch from the Moselsteig to the Eifelsteig. It is the final stage on this walking holiday and it would be pretty tricky to offer more highlights than on this tour. Impressive natural monuments like the well-known Genoveva and Klausen caves or the view of the Kyll river meanders and the imposing Burg Ramstein are all waiting for you on today’s walk through the romantic Butzerbach valley.
