Moselsteig Trail Stage 11: Bernkastel-Kues – Ürzig

This section of the trail passes along the edge of the slope and through tranquil woodland, offering stunning glimpses of the picturesque Old Town in Bernkastel-Kues as far as the idyllic wine-making village of Ürzig . Along the route the village of Zeltingen-Rachtig and the former Cistercian monastery in Machern provide attractive places to stop off and refuel. Just before Zeltingen-Rachtig, you can also visit the experimental orchard and garden in Zeltingen, in which exotic and long-forgotten native vegetables and fruit are grown. A number of short detours through shaded woodland passages and on grassy paths along the edge of the slope offer variety as well as magnificent views down into the Moselle Valley.
