Moselsteig Trail Stage 03: Nittel – Konz

Steep rock faces and wide-open fields are the characteristic features of this section of the trail. Just after leaving the wine-growing village of Nittel, hikers are treated to breathtaking views across the Moselle Valleyand over to impressive limestone cliffs. The visible sedimentary layers of these rocks, created some 210 million years ago, by the Trias Sea, reveal a glimpse of the Earth's history. The Moselsteig Trail follows these cliffs through varied countryside in the Nittel Cliffs Nature Reserve. Be sure to make a short detour to the orchid meadow to admire these rare plants in their natural environment. The trail continues on steep paths through the forestand finally along the "Stations of the Cross" before descending into the town of Konz. This town, which lies at the mouth of the River Saar, invites visitors to stop a while with its interesting points of interest, such as the Roscheider Hof Open Air Cultural History Museum.
