The Moselsteig has not been around as long as, for example, the Eifelsteig and the Rheinsteig, and not every hiker has heard of it. This makes the Moselsteig perhaps Germany's best-kept hiking secret. 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 6-day hiking holiday, you will take in the most beautiful stages of the Mostelsteig. Each day you will walk between 10 and 25 kilometers and spend 6 to 8 hours hiking. Your accommodation in comfortable Gasthofen and hotels along the way is arranged and your extra luggage will be transported to your next accommodation each time. You only have to concentrate on the route and think about which wines you want to taste again today.



Arrival in Perl

Today you will arrive in Perl. The hike starts tomorrow, so you have time today to get to know Perl. You can go to the Triple-border Point of Luxembourg, Germany, and France. You can also take a look at the reconstructed Roman villa Borg.

The first (or last) stage of the Moselsteig is beautiful because of the nature, open landscape, and exclusive views of Luxembourg and France. You soon pass the Triple-border Point. You continue across the German-French border, where you have beautiful views of France. The landscape constantly changes, offering a contrast to the vine-covered Moselle valley, rustic forests, and the vast fields of the Saargau. With Palzem, an attractive destination awaits you.

Palzem - Nittel

Duration: 04:30 h
Distance: 16.1 km
Ascent: 310 m
Descent: 320 m
The second stage of the Moselsteig surprises for its varied route. It starts in Palzem, the southernmost Moselle municipality in Rhineland-Palatinate, right on the Luxembourg border. The imposing "Helfanter Dom" with its double towers is worth a short visit. The walk continues on short, steep slopes through forests and meadows. There are several opportunities to take short breaks and admire the splendor of the Moselle. The stage eventually leads through vineyards to the wine village of Nittel. Cheers.
