Many hiking trails start in Zeltingen-Rachtig, such as the "Deutschherrenweg" on the mountain, the Weinlagenweg through the vineyards Himmelreich, Schloßberg and Sonnenuhr, the Kulturweg "From Kurköln to the Deutschherren". The Moselsteig crosses the Moselle near Zeltingen-Rachtig, so that there are two beautiful sections: to Bernkastel-Kues and to Ürzig. Then it goes back with the ship.
Good connection - good choice
Zeltingen is an ideal starting point for cyclists because of the cycle bus stop to Bullay, Trier and Daun. There are plenty of free parking spaces for cars on the Moselle in the direction of the miniature golf course. Here also the ships of the white fleet stop, which do not only bring the cyclists comfortably back to Zeltingen-Rachtig. If you are travelling by e-bike, you can recharge your battery at the old scale (opposite Uferallee 14) in Zeltingen and in front of the "Alter Schulhaus" (Georgstr.) in Rachtig. It's also more leisurely - a walk along the "Von Kurköln zu den Deutschherren" cultural trail, a short hike to the variety garden, an orchard in the middle of the vineyards, a game on the minigolf course on the banks of the Moselle or simply sit along the Moselle and let time and ships pass by. The varied gastronomy invites to discover the place culinarily: whether a rustic winegrower plate, regional kitchen with suitable wines, a multi-course gourmet menu coffee and tasty cakes. Whether on a terrace with a view of the Moselle, a romantic square in the town centre or in the courtyard of a winery.
