Surreal Hiking Trails


Lined with sun-drenched vineyard terraces and steep slopes, the Moselle meanders through ancient landscapes. Here, the traditional Riesling grows, allowing those who walk past to indulge in a drink and some food in one of the many small winery pubs and "Strauss" restaurants. Numerous sluices generate busy ship traffic, which captures the attention of those nearby, picturesque chapels and proud castles tell the tales of times long gone. An especially appealing stop for hikes along the Moselle is the wildly-romantic Ehrenburg castle, surrounded by thick woods, transporting visitors back to the deepest Middle Ages. The following are the inviting hiking trails along the Moselle:
