Mosel 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.
