Hiking on the Moselle

How beautiful hiking on the Moselle is, we have seen in several hiking trails discovered in the region around Alf, Bullay and Zell on the Moselle. There are wonderful views of the river along the way. The idyllic places are worth a visit. You can also go on a wine tasting hike in the wine region. Or just pack a bottle of Moselle wine and a snack in your backpack, find a nice vantage point for a picnic and enjoy the views of the Mosel.

This hike along the Moselle offers beautiful views of the river, Bullay and Plünderich. This is hiking on the Moselle with pleasure. From the parking lot in Auf d. Hill in Alf head north and take the Auf Tannerd path which branches sharply to the left. On the way you will pass the Margarethenhöhe viewpoint. From there you have a beautiful view of the Moselle and the double-decker bridge that leads from Bullay over the river. After about 600 meters, turn left onto the Waldfrieden path. At Haus Waldfrieden, turn right and follow the path past the military cemetery to the Prinzenkopf lookout tower.

We continued our hike along the Moselle to a vantage point on Plünderich. From there you have a view of the Moselle and the town of Plünderich.

Hiking on the Moselle through the vineyards near Alf

A hike along the Moselle through the vineyards above Alf is also rewarded with beautiful views of the town and the river. We park our car at the riverside parking lot and walk to the church of Alf. Shortly after we turn left onto the Bergstrasse. We follow this until Solligstraße branches off to the half right. Shortly thereafter, Solligstrasse makes a sharp right turn up the hill. This road leads us directly to the mountain chapel. On this route we hike through the vineyards on the Moselle and always have the river in view.

Have you ever gone hiking at the Lower Moselle? The holiday region with its Moselle towns is only a few kilometers from Koblenz away and is a suitable starting point for tours through the area. The hiking trails through nature are very well marked, eventful and the good thing: they always bring hikers back to the starting point.



Hiking along the Moselle on the Moselsteig side jump "Würzlaysteig"

The Moselsteig side jump “Würzlaysteig” in Lehmen. Varied landscapes as well as fascinating views and unique flora and fauna make this 9,3 kilometer long tour an experience. The hike begins at the Lehmen sports park in the direction of the Würzlay vineyard. After a few steps along a wooded natural path, you can leave everyday life behind and enjoy the views of the valley. High above the Moselle and the Würzlay vineyard, an alpine path finally leads through the steep slopes. This section requires fitness, sure-footedness and a minimum level of freedom from heights. The climb is rewarded with some viewpoints. Numerous benches and rest areas also invite you to linger.

Hike on the Moselle with a wide view of the Moselle valley

Accompanied by the Maifeld, you can reach the Ausoniushütte in a relaxed manner, which invites you to take a break in the countryside. A short path off the route leads to the Ausoniusstein viewpoint, a protruding rock over the Moselle. It's worth pausing here and taking in the wide view of the Moselle valley while hiking along the Moselle. The route is much more relaxed and less strenuous along fields and meadows on the plateau through the Ausoniusstein nature reserve. The way back is also rewarded with a beautiful view from the Hubertushöhe. After a short, steep descent you finally return to the starting point.
