The cycling and hiking resort of Hochscheid with its 270 inhabitants lies at the foot of the 746 m high Idarkopf in Mosel-Hunsrück. Hochscheid is ideal for a family holiday with children. On the edge of the Idarkopf in the Hunsrück lies the small cycling and hiking village of Hochscheid. Hochscheid is ideal for families who want a relaxing holiday. The village is also a good starting point for excursions to Bernkastel, Trier, Koblenz and much more. In winter, Hochscheid offers a cross-country ski run and groomed slopes due to its location.
