Moselsteig trail


The Moselsteig Trail. Surprising. Challenging. Thrilling.

Spanning a total of 365 kilometres, the Moselsteig Trail is not only one of the longest, but also one of the most diverse quality long-distance hiking trails in Germany: surprising diversity, challenging in its length and thrilling by nature. 

Diverse experiences await the hiker on 24 legs, each of entirely different character. They lead through forests, vineyards, along the banks of the Moselle, as well as along slope edges with magnificent views. They thrill with their closeness to nature and rich cultural history. The many viewing points ensure memorable views. And if that's not enough, there are interesting excursions in the immediate vicinity on the Moselsteig trail’s certified partner circular hiking trails, side trails and Moselle ‘dream paths’ and ‘dream path’ excursions.
