The "On Nature's Trail" themed trail in the wine town of Lösnich or the Lieser adventure trail with its 20 adventure stations are also suitable for families with children.
Moselsteig trail: Through a landscape dotted with highlights
The 365-kilometre Moselsteig trail is one of the most varied long-distance hiking trails in Germany. It covers the whole of the Moselle river in Germany, from Perl at the German-French-Luxembourg border to the Deutsches Eck in Coblenz. The 24 stages of the Moselsteig trail, varying in length between 11 and 24 kilometres, are dotted with breathtaking views. They take you through vineyards and woods, along the Moselle and steep rock faces. People who love adventurous hiking tours will appreciate the varied stages of the Moselsteig trail and its stunning views.
The "Erdener Treppchen/Prälat" climbing trail calls for fitness, surefootedness, a head for heights and suitable footwear. The breathtaking ten-kilometre circular route takes you from the Roman wine-making station on the bank of the Moselle along narrow paths and ladders and to the high cliffs of the Erden rock group. But the exciting climb is worth it…
