The Moselle Trail

  • Walk from inn to inn through the Moselle Valley; Germany’s wine paradise
  • Follow the Moselsteig; voted one of Germany’s ‘Most Beautiful’ walking trails
  • Explore towns sprinkled with half-timbered houses, Roman ruins and castles
  • Hike on peaceful trails through forest and vineyards, high above the river
  • Stay in family-run wineries where you can relax with a glass of local Riesling
Walk through Germany’s oldest wine region, the Moselle Valley, from the Roman city of Trier to Bernkastel-Kues; a pretty Baroque town and an important centre of Moselle wine production. Fall into the relaxing rhythm of following easy to moderate walking trails each day, working up an appetite for an al-fresco picnic, perched high above the river, before continuing on to your next overnight stop. Spend the evenings immersing yourself in the region’s wine culture and cuisine, refuelling on meaty regional dishes, marinated in local white wine. As well as being certified one of Germany’s ‘Quality Walking Trails’, the Moselsteig is also a Leading Quality Trail of the European Ramblers Association, so you can expect well signposted, well-maintained trails with beautiful views along the way. Combine all this with traditional towns and renowned vineyards for an unforgettable walking experience.
