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 Eifelsteig through wild and romantic nature and finally by crossing a suspension bridge into the idyllic Kyll valley.

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, where you can see Schloss Thorn from afar. This is the oldest castle winery on the Mosel. A very special highlight on this stage are the sinkholes made out of limestone.

Hotel (example): zur Moselterrasse

approx. 5 to 6 hours

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.

Hotel (example): Culinarium Nittel

approx. 4.5 hours
16 km

You walk along diverse paths through the species-rich nature protection area “Nitteler Felsen” whilst getting impressive panoramic views of the river Mosel and the unique limestone cliffs by the Mosel and Saar. Today’s destination is the town Konz, which is where the river Saar flows into the river Mosel and, which was already settled in Roman times.

Hotel (example): Albachmühle

approx. 5.5 hours

Today you head towards the Mosel Metropolis, Trier, and you will be tracing the Romans. After crossing the river Mosel, it is worth taking a detour to the Igel Column, which is a richly ornamented roman monument. You then walk through the Busen valley along nature natural paths (despite being close to the town) in the culturally rich town of Trier. Its many attractions are waiting for you.

Hotel (example): Deutscher Hof

approx. 4.5 to 5 hours
18 km
350 m

Make sure that you visit the UNESCO-World heritage site Porta Nigra, the amphitheater and the cathedral in Germany’s oldest town. You walk along the Traumsteig up to the Petrisberg where you will get a breathtaking view of Trier and the Mosel valley. In the afternoon, you will go on a panoramic ship ride on the river Mosel.

Hotel (example): Deutscher Hof

approx. 2 to 3 hours
10 km

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.

Hotel (example): Hotel Neyses

Entspannte Wanderung
Die Reise war super toll organisiert. Das Essen in den gebuchten Hotels war sehr lecker. Das Gepäck war stets vor mir im Quartier. Die Unterlagen waren toll, insbesondere die Extratipps. Die Wegführung war toll. Es hat mich angenehm überrascht, dass die Wegführung an der Mosel durch abwechslungsreiche Natur führte. Ich kann Eurohike nur weiterempfehlen und werde sicherlich wieder buchen.

Ein gelungener Wanderurlaub!
Alles was wir angetroffen haben war Top. Wanderstrecke, Unterkünfte (sehr hundefreundlich), die Routenbeschreibung und vieles mehr. Nicht zu vergessen die Weinprobe. wir werden wieder über Eurohike buchen - hat uns sehr überzeugt.

Rundum zufrieden
Alle Hotels waren ganz prima und wir sind jeweils freundlich begrüßt und versorgt worden. Den Moselsteig im "Goldenen Oktober" zu bewandern kann ich nur empfehlen. Wir sind rundum zufrieden und empfehlen das Arrangement gerne weiter.

Beautiful hike along the Mosel
We really enjoyed the hike along the Mosel. Eurohike booked fit for purpose hotels for us and the route was well indicated by signs. As all hotels were located in cities with a train station, we could easily skip one hiking day due to heavy rainfall.

Sehr schöne Wanderreise
Insgesamt eine runde Sache. Hervorzuheben sind die 2 Nächte in Trier und das dort vorgesehene Programm, welches noch genügend Zeit für eigene Erkundungen der Stadt lässt. Die letzte Etappe nach Kordel zu führen ist auch eine sehr gute Idee.
