The hike follows the Saar-Pfalz-Weg for a while and then turns off towards Eckkopf. Anyone who has reached the top can eat in the restaurant at the top. In addition, the route leads along the Kurpfalz Park, which is open from the end of March to November and is always worth a visit https://www.kurpfalz-park.de/de/Show more

Since the summer of 2008, the so-called Mosel-Camino is completely marked as part of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela from Koblenz-Stolzenfels to the Benedictine Abbey of St. Matthias in Trier on a varied and scenic route. Well over a thousand signs and stickers with the yellow scallop on a blue background as well as a number of yellow arrows guide the pilgrims and hikers to the last resting place of the apostle Matthias over some 160 kilometers (with detours and more sightseeing). The converging ribs of the shell indicate the direction as an arrow. In connection with the Ecumenical Pilgrims' Way, the Elisabeth Trail (and the Lahn-Camino (Görlitz - Eisenach - Marburg - Lahnstein), the possibility has been created on both sides of the Mosel and its adjacent heights, in an east-west direction to Trier to the sarcophagus with the bones of the apostle Matthias and from there on to Santiago de Compostela to the relic shrine of the apostle James to pilgrimage. The (opposite) course of the Moselle gives roughly the southwest direction in the diocese city. But to avoid the meandering meanders of the Moselle, the path leads again and again to the occasional breezy heights of Eifel and Hunsrück. Again and again medieval castles and ruins, but also venerable (monastery) churches and chapels line the pilgrimage route. Traditional pilgrimage places alternate with romantic wine villages and towns. The difficulty of this route is certainly challenging, but not overwhelming; Nevertheless, due to many a steep passage in the vineyard, a sufficient degree of fitness and sure-footedness as well as reasonable footwear is required. In the new issues of the corresponding LVermGeo hiking maps (1: 25000) the way is registered! Good public transport connections make it possible to go as a day or weekend pilgrims in individually selected (day or weekend) sections. Of course you should not miss the one or the other tasting in the evening: after all, the Moselle-Camino leads through a series of best Riesling vineyards! Also marked are access routes in the area of Waldesch, Grenderich, Kesten, Mülheim, Klüsserath and Ensch! Show more
#3 - Laacher Lake Loop

If you walk along the Laacher See, the route is absolutely flat and very easy. Over 8 kilometers you can enjoy the proximity to the lake and the surrounding nature. However, there is direct contact with the water only at the bird sanctuary near the parking lot. If you listen carefully, you can also hear the bubbling of the lake. Not far from the shore, bubbles rise from the depths of the water at geopoint L3. Just 12,000 years ago is the huge eruption that devastated this area. Lacher See is a remnant of Vuilkan activity.Show more

We start the youth hiking trail "On the Calmonter Klettersteig" at Carlfritz-Nicolay-Platz at the Moselle Bridge in Cochem (www.cochem.de). First we hike uphill to Reichsburg (www.reichsburg-cochem.de). The imposing castle perched on a hilltop above the city has a millenary history behind it. A visit to the inner part of the castle with knight's hall, hunting room and Kemenate is highly recommended. In addition, the castle houses a falconry, where daily flight demonstrations of birds of prey take place. We continue our hike, running downhill through the forest to then over the height and down the Ellerbach to reach the mighty entrance portal of the Kaiser-Wilhlem-Tunnel. The Kaiser Wilhelm Tunnel was for decades the longest tunnel in Germany. Currently a second tube is being dug into the tunnel. We pass the construction site and reach the entrance to the famous Calmonter via ferrata (www.calmont-klettersteig.com) in Eller. The via ferrata is well secured with ladders, rope guards, tines and handrails. With sturdy shoes and normal condition of each to overcome and a special climbing experience on spectacular hiking trails. After this sweaty challenge, we arrive in the wine town of Bremm. With the Moselsteig and through cultivated vineyards we reach the place Neef with the same named station. The train takes us back to Cochem through the Kaiser Wilhelm Tunnel. Before that we can visit the Oven and Puppet Museum (www.weinortneef.de) with over 50 different cast-iron ovens and more than 400 special dolls. Tip: The youth hostel Cochem is available for overnight stays and further explorations. In Cochem the second youth hiking trail "Auf dem Moselsteig" can be hiked.Show more
