Ferienland Bernkastel-Kues planned a hike.
October 8, 2020
Two different, enchanting cities that are connected by the Moselle and separated by the vineyards: From Bernkastel-Kues, which is known for its wines and beautiful half-timbered houses, you hike to the Art Nouveau town of Traben-Trarbach.The starting point of this tour is in the old town of Bernkastel with its winding streets and traditional houses. The path leads you through the Graacher Tor into the vineyards. The fantastic views of the Moselle and Bernkastel-Kues change with every step. In the Waldschänke mit Herz (formerly part of the Iron Wine List) you can try the fine wines before diving into the forest. At the watershed between Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach you reach the highest point of this hike and a rest area invites you to take a break.We continue through the underpass of the B50 and then the descent back into the dreamy Moselle valley begins. When you leave the forest, you have a view of the gentle vineyards of the Wildbach Valley and the Grevenburg castle ruins. You hike down along orchards to Traben-Trarbach. There you will find the bridge gate, built in 1898/99, which testifies to the wealth of the city at the time it was built. You have reached your destination on the banks of the Moselle. The way back to the starting point in Bernkastel-Kues is the same, by bus or, with great views, by boat.
