Follow in the footsteps of the Romans, discover the most beautiful vineyards and end your hiking days with a delicious glass of wine. You will find the good life on the banks of the Moselle. 
During this 5-day hiking holiday, you will hike the last stages of the Mostelsteig, from Löf to the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz. Walk along the Moselle, drink wine and see the river eventually flow into the Rhine. Your accommodation in comfortable Gasthofen and hotels along the way is arranged, and your remaining luggage is always driven to your next accommodation. All you have to do is concentrate on the route.
Why book through

However, putting together the right route including booking all accommodation can be a complicated affair. has warm contacts with all accommodations on the Moselsteig we will gladly take that burden off your shoulders. Contact our Trekking Experts for free travel advice and arranging your Moselsteig hike will be a piece of cake.


What's the plan?

Day 1, Arrival in Löf

Welcome to Löf an der Mosel. Tomorrow the hike only starts, so you can relax today in this pretty wine village on the Moselle. Visit one of the many Weinstubes or check out the Kattner Mühlental. In this valley, 13 mills were run with the water power of the Mühlbach in past centuries.

Day 2, Stage 1: Löf - Kobern-Gondorf

This first stage is a journey through time. After a steep climb, you pass the entrance to the 12th-century Thurant castle, which you can visit. From here you have a great view over the valley. The path continues uphill, through vineyards until you reach the Bleidenberg plateau. During this climb, don't forget to look back several times to enjoy the beautiful view of the castle. After a variation of mountain paths, open fields, and forest trails, you will reach the Hitzlay - a viewpoint with fantastic views of the Moselle and the dam at Lehmen. Today's last great view is at the Mönch-Felix-Hütte. This is a small wooden lookout tower where you have a fantastic panoramic view of Kobern-Gondorf with its two castles and the Matthias Chapel.

Distance: 14.8 kilometers
Walking time: 4 hours
Ascent: 520 meters
Descend: 520 meters

Day 3, Stage 2: Kobern-Gondorf - Winningen

Today you will follow in the footsteps of the secret of the Tatzelwurm. The trail leads you through the Mühlental, directly to the realm of the Tatzelwurm, a legendary mythical creature said to live here in the forest. Walking through ancient vineyards, you will arrive at the Matthias Chapel. This chapel was built in the 13th century in honor of the apostle Matthias. This chapel is definitely worth a visit. The path descends through the forest until you reach Belltal. From there, a challenging climb awaits over a rocky path. Once at the top, you will be rewarded with a fantastic Moselle panorama. You continue hiking through the forest and vineyards before reaching Winningen.

Distance: 13.4 kilometers
Walking time: 3.5 hours
Ascent: 410 meters
Descend: 410 meters

Day 4, Stage 3: Winningen - Koblenz

The last stage runs mainly through vineyards. You also pass the Hexenhügel, the Witches' Hill, where you will find a memorial stone, commemorating witch burnings in the Middle Ages. Around Winningen you will find the most extensive vineyard terraces in the entire Moselle region, and these provide a habitat for many special and rare animal species, such as the Apollo butterfly. The path takes you further through meadows and fruit orchards. Along the riverbank, you walk to the town's landmark, the Deutsches Eck. Here, the Moselle merges into the Rhine.

Distance: 14.9 kilometers
Walking time: 3.5 hours
Ascent: 150 meters
Descend: 170 meters

The Moselsteig is one of the more popular long-distance hiking trails in Germany. That, combined with the beauty of the Moselle and its many wine villages, means you'll find numerous accommodation options along the Moselsteig. Be it a hotel, a guesthouse, a Bed, and Breakfast or a so-called Zimmer Frei. On the Moselsteig trail, you'll find it all. The nice thing about the hiking trail is that you are never very far from civilization. This makes it easy to combine the Moselsteig with a comfortable long weekend away. The Gasthöfer and Hotels along the Moselsteig are usually family-run businesses, often accompanied by an in-house restaurant(s) and bar, and play a central role in community life in the village or town. The wine villages also offer wine tasting. 
Organizing the stages and booking accommodation should not be taken lightly. Hotels can be fully booked months in advance. We try to book the accommodation below for you based on availability. Should there be no availability, we will try to find you a suitable alternative.

This is a romantic hotel with remarkable architecture and old half-timbering and is located directly on Kobern-Gondorf's historic market square. The hotel fits perfectly into a picture book.

Do you love nostalgia and know no limits to your imagination? Then you've come to the right place. In 1868, August Horch was born here, one of the great pioneers of automobile construction.

Where is the Moselsteig? 

The Mostelsteig starts at Perl, near the border triangle between Germany, Luxembourg, and France, and ends in Koblenz, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine. Both Perl and Koblenz and most stops in between are easily accessible both by car and public transport. The Moselsteig is 365 kilometers long and is divided into 24 stages. With lengths between 11 and 24 kilometers, levels of difficulty ranging from easy to challenging, and paths through forests, vineyards, or typical wine villages, the Moselsteig is suitable for young and old and has a few suitable stages for everyone.

Best season for the Moselsteig

Although you can hike the Moselsteig all year round, the best seasons are obviously spring, summer, and early autumn. Note that some climbs on the Moselsteig can be muddy and slippery in winter or after heavy rainfall. If you want to combine the Moselsteig with the wine season, stick to July and August. During these months, there are various festivities concerning Riesling and other famous wines in the various regions. Not to worry, you can always find a good glass of wine along the Moselle in the off-season too. 

Moselsteig and wine
Germany is known for beer but on the banks of the Moselle, you will find wine. Lots and lots of wine. The Moselle region is one of 13 German wine regions and the third largest when it comes to production. Production aside, the Moselle is the best known among experts and that has everything to do with its unique climate and the quality of Riesling wines, which you find a lot here. 
With a 65° slope, the steepest registered vineyard in the world is Mosel's Calmont, which belongs to the village of Bremm and is therefore called Bremmer Calmont. On Stage 16 of the Moselsteig, you pass Calmont. But it doesn't really matter where you start and end, all along the Moselsteig, you'll find a good glass of wine. Or two.

Arriving and departing

How do I get to the Moselsteig and back?

The Mosellesteig is well served by public transport. The Moselle Valley Railway connects Trier with Koblenz, so there is always a train station nearby along the Mosellesteig. This ensures that the Mosellesteig can also be easily hiked in individual stages and completed as you wish.

By plane

It is the easiest to fly to Frankfurt. From there you can take the train to Koblenz, and take the Moseltalbahn to Löf. This journey will only take you a little more than 2 hours.

By train

If traveling by train, take the ICE to Cologne/Cologne and then the ICE to Frankfurt. Get off in Koblenz and from here take the direct train (Moseltalbahn) to Löf. The journey takes about 6 hours. From Belgium, it is best to reach Löf by train via Luxembourg City and Trier via the Moseltalbahn.

Back to the starting point

It doesn't matter whether the Moselsteig starts in Perl, Trier, Koblenz, or somewhere along the way. Trier and Koblenz are directly connected by the Moseltalbahn. The Moseltalbahn runs parallel to the Moselsteig and 16 of the 24 stages are served directly by train. There is also an extensive bus network in the Moselle region. Note: Plan your trip before the hike!



The Moselsteig is not as well known as the Eifelsteig and the Rheinsteig but it is nevertheless a well-known hiking trail in Germany. The hiking trail is well-marked in both directions with the recognizable Moselsteig symbol. 
Although the Moselsteig is anything but a Himalayan trek, things can always happen and there are also obstacles on the hiking trails along the way. For an unforgettable and safe memory, at least keep the following in mind:
- Wear appropriate clothing adapted to the weather that protects you from cold and wetness or from heat and sun.
- Do not leave the marked paths.
- Prepare carefully for your stages and use your energy wisely. 
- Always make sure you have enough water with you. 
- During climbs and descents, always use the provided aids such as handrails and ropes. 
- Hiking trails can be treacherous, especially in autumn and winter. 
Important phone numbers
Make sure your loved ones are informed about your hiking program. Bring a charged phone containing at least the following numbers: 
- Immediate family member
- Places of accommodation en route
- General European emergency number: 112
