Delightful hiking along the Moselle


Famous cultural and wine ambassador Kerstin Müllers hails from the Moselle valley and also makes wine in the region. We join her on an adventurous walk and voyage of discovery to her favourite places in her home region. The walk on marked footpaths takes us through the vineyards of Kröv, along the collective vineyards producing the famous ‘Kröver Nacktarsch’ wines and to the loop of the Moselle at Wolf. The view over Wolf to the heights of Mont Royal is simply breathtaking. At the foot of the vineyards, you can see Traben-Trarbach and the gated bridge that connects the two parts of town, and, looking up, the ruins of the Grevenburg high above the town. 

Although it is a challenging walk up to the ruins of the castle, which was originally built as an outer ward to Mont Royal more than 600 years ago, you are rewarded by wonderful views and excellent opportunities for rest and refreshment in the castle inn. “Looking down at the Moselle river from here always takes your breath away!” explains Kerstin. It is a lovely spot to stop and enjoy a delicious Moselle wine and a typical regional snack, or a good coffee and a slice of cake. When the sun shines, tables are in high demand as locals and visitors alike flock up to the Grevenburg.

The path leads us on to Starkenburg, a little mountain village set amidst unspoilt nature. There is even a café and wine bar called ‘Schöne Aussicht’, or ‘lovely view’, which very much delivers on its promise. Your eyes are drawn to the mountains of the Hunsrück, through the Moselle valley and into the Eifel. If you like it here, you can settle into one of the rental apartments and enjoy the wonderful peace.

The route leads through the vineyards to Reil, passing through the charming Moselle villages of Enkirch and Burg with their narrow winding streets and pretty half-timbered houses. The picture-postcard Moselle promenade in Reil is the perfect place to stop for a while and relax, with its playground, benches, and pubs and restaurants.

This is followed by another climb towards Reiler Hals where, once again, wonderful views await us. You can sense Kerstin Müllers’ passion for her home region, she even has it etched into her skin. At the end of the day, Kerstin takes us to her estate, this time by car.

As well as a small vintner estate, there is also a distillery for delicious liqueurs, which are the perfect way to see out a day that has been hard work, but well worth it. You can visit the individual winemakers in the Moselle villages, but in these parts there is always something to celebrate, whether it is the ‘Internationales Trachtentreffen’ in Kröv with its traditional costumes, the ‘Jakobstag’ or the ‘Mosel-Wein-Nachts-Markt’ in Traben-Trarbach or one of the numerous wine festivals and street fairs. But if you lived on the Moselle you could enjoy it every day.
