It’s time for another hiking weekend! Let’s go to beautiful Moselle river! The trail on both days is described as intermediate, however there are some steep parts of the trail on both days. Previous hiking experience, good fitness and good hiking shoes are required.

Day 1
From Moselkern to Alken.
The trail starts with a steep path through the vineyards, we will be rewarded with magnificent views. The viewpoint "Küppchen" offers a fantastic view of the Moselle and Baybachtal and the nearby Burg Bischofsstein. This stage ends in Löf, but we will walk to Alken to have a dinner there. I booked my accommodation in `Moselhotel Burg-Cafe´. I recommend booking your accommodation as soon as you have decided to join, there are not too many options in the area.

Day 2
From Alken to Kobern-Gondorf.
On the second day we start with the visit to one of the oldest castles of the Moselland, the Thurant castle from the 12th century, from which wonderful views lead down to the valley. There will be some challenging path through the vineyards until the plateau of Bleidenbergs is reached. It is circled on a beautiful hillside trail and offers a breathtaking view. This stage is rounded off by two well-known viewpoints - the Hitzlay and the Mönch-Felix-Hütte. Finally, the Moselsteig leads as a steep serpentine path into Aspelbachtal and from there over the Moselgoldbrücke to Kobern-Gondorf.
