Leaving the half-timbered houses in Reil behind, the trail first follows the Cannon's Railway, a historical railway from a former era, and heads into the vineyards. Right at the very start of today's hike, your gaze is drawn to the attractive points of interest on the hike – the Prinzenkopf viewing tower and the Marienburg. You can also make out the route of the Moselsteig Trail itself from up here. A picture-book-perfect view of the extensive loop of the Moselle opens up to you once you have reached the viewing tower on the Prinzenkopf and the Marienburg. Although the Marienburg 'saddle' is only 400 metres wide, the Moselle takes over 14 kilometres to complete this loop. The trail continues onto Zell where you will undoubtedly have an opportunity to track down the secret of the Black Cat.
