    In dry weather, equipment is not absolutely necessary. You should be in good physical condition and have a head for heights.

    Narrow path with a wonderful view of the Moselle. The small climbing tours are fun :) But sturdy hiking shoes are part of it and you have to be free from giddiness. The mountain heats up a lot in the summer sun - I recommend cooler days or the early morning.

    Great (scrambling) path across the vineyard, which is just fun - if you don't start walking in blazing sun or temperatures above 25 ° C ... the Calmont punishes this immediately (Calmont = caidius mons = hot mountain). So it is best to start early, because at the end of the high path it is again down the sunny slope;)

    We walked the whole way with a dog, which was only possible because the dog could be carried at the key points or was able to bypass it on its own. Unfortunately this does not always work - or not every dog will be able to do this (because it may be too small to try it on its own or too big to be carried). The heat near the ground due to the reflective stone should not be underestimated for the dogs! We offered him water very, very often (and even used almost 1.5 liters per person). Otherwise, our dog had a lot of fun climbing again - and there is enough shade on the summit cross;)

    Last note: Please keep the dog on a leash! We saw a deer mother with a fawn in the middle of the vineyard ... not 2m away from the path.

    A beautiful way, great view of the Moselle. Solid shoes + a lot to drink are a must. Best at temperatures <20 ° C

    That's where alpine flair comes in!
    Sure-footedness and suitable footwear are mandatory - especially when wet!

    In the second third of the ascent to the viewpoint you can see the complete loop best!
    Seeking from the top you have a nice view!
    Here is also a "runway / surface" fly to the dragon

    The term via ferrata is perhaps a little over the top, but it is definitely beautiful

    Really a great hiking trail, where you should not have a fear of heights in places. But that's something you might already think of in terms of the term "via ferrata".

    The Calmont is the steepest vineyard in Europe with up to 70 degrees breakneck slopes. Climbing pleasure and thrills were announced. Unfortunately, it was too hot, because in the slate slopes it was partly 42.4 degrees, not in vain is called "calidus mons" hot mountain. I was close to the heat collapse. At the summit cross you could follow drinks (only on weekends)
    Over the Moselhöhenweg it went back then through sparse forest again.
    The beautiful panoramic view of the Mosel loop, the opposite Petersberg and the monastery ruins Stuben compensated us for the efforts.
    Sure-footedness and a head for heights is called for, as I believe that some backups were missing. I could not take pictures here anymore.
    The heat had something good, there were hardly any people on the way.

    Halfway you have the opportunity to faren with a Monorackbahn. The 5 euros should really invest

    A fantastic climb, great opportunities to rest, mega views and great as a circular route over the Calmont Höhenweg.

    The "via ferrata" is more like a mountain trail, partly exposed and steep, with short secured via ferrata passages (ropes, ladders) compared to alpine via ferrata, which one should only use with harness and via ferrata set. Beautifully landscaped, constantly panoramic views of the Mosel loop and you can appreciate the hard work of the "Wengerter" in their steep slopes. Above all, the sometimes extremely steep monorail tracks are respectable - whoever climbs them, must also rely 100% on the technology, otherwise it will be a short and fast descent ;-)

    Not suitable for dogs and other animals. But children do the via ferrata quite well.

    Adventure in the steepest vineyard in Europe. The path leads over ladders past striking rock spurs. Steel ropes give you support when crossing a rock ridge. Enjoy the wonderful panorama between the towns of Bremm and Ediger-Eller with a view of the Stuben monastery ruins on the narrowest and most beautiful bend in the Moselle. The highlight and insider tip at the same time is the CALMONT via ferrata, which leads you with partly alpine challenges between Eller and Bremm at an altitude of 200 to 300 meters above the Moselle across the steepest vineyards in Europe. There are great challenges for hiking and climbing enthusiasts. The CALMONT via ferrata was built in 2002 as a joint project by the municipalities of Bremm, Ediger-Eller and Neef. The German Alpine Association has secured the route with steel ropes, ladders and numerous step stirrups and pins, so that a safe ascent and descent is guaranteed. For hiking and climbing tours in the CALMONT REGION you need sturdy shoes, a head for heights and a good physical condition. There are rest and viewing huts in many places along the way. On hot summer days, a hiking tour in the morning or early evening is recommended! Sufficient mineral water and a hat should not be missing in the backpack! In an emergency, dial 112 and give the call number (there are numbers where the Monorackbahn crosses the via ferrata, these are used by the rescuers for orientation in an emergency). Source: text

    A must, a highlight, the Calmont. Here grows the good Riesling and the respect for the winemakers, who do a fantastic job here and contribute to the landscape, without which the Moselle would not be so fantastic. For children too dangerous for experienced hikers no problem.

    A beautiful partially insured hiking trail with a few ladders, some of which you have to go up and down no matter which direction you use the via ferrata. You can start either in Bremm or in Ediger-Eller.
    We had our mountain-experienced 7kg miniature poodle with us, which you either take under the ladder under your arm or have to put in your backpack. You cannot avoid these ladders.

    Via ferrata with moderate to high risk of dizziness.
    Not all places are secured with ropes or steps, sometimes you have to cling to the rock.
    Not accessible with dogs! (at most with small breeds that you can put under your arm, but then it becomes very risky for humans)
    There are no bypasses!
    And if you have made a climbing passage and think "it wasn't that bad", then there is another and another and ...
    This can be really fun or nerve-wracking.
    I was out very early, before the sun and crowds reached the slope (from about 10 a.m.CEST the sun is on the slope!).

    the Ferrata Calmont nice Kraxelei - but unfortunately more hike than via ferrata tour ;-)
    But worth a visit! and in the corner there are - apart from the Boppard klettersteig - not many alternatives ;-)
