Moselsteig Trail Stage 19: Cochem – Treis-Karden

The Moselsteig Trail is extremely varied and changeable along this stretch, yet also offers a number of short detours worth making: for example, one leads to a gushing waterfall in the Dortebach Valley nature reserve with its exotic micro-climate and another to one of the many places offering refreshments in the idyllic wine-producing villages along the trail. The Martberg Archaeological Park, which lies directly on the trail, takes you on a journey back in time to the authentically reconstructed buildings of the former Celtic-Roman Mountain Sanctuary. The countryside along this section of the trail also has a lot to offer hikers: the trail passes through wonderful high-level woodland, through vineyards and along river valleys until finally reaching its destination in Treis-Karden.

This section can be split into two or three shorter sections thanks to the excellent rail connections. The railway stations in Klotten and Pommern are situated directly on the Moselsteig Trail.
