October 8, 2020
Gold-colored vineyards, jagged rocks and a garden full of spices await you on this tour, which is peppered with a few more challenging climbs. For this you will be rewarded with impressive views.The starting point is at Ürzig Town Hall Square. Through picturesque alleys you follow Würzgartenstraße to the cemetery and turn into the well-known vineyard. The big letters "Ürziger Würzgarten" that stand between the vines cannot be overlooked. You keep climbing up the slope until you reach the edge of the forest, which now glows in the most beautiful colors in autumn. Then it gets exhausting: On the steep Erdener podium you quickly make up a few meters and are rewarded with a great view over the valley and the vineyards.From the Erdener Himmelreich it goes over the Leizenberg towards Ürziger Höhe, where some houses nestle against the mountain. After you have crossed the Roman road, you follow the forest path parallel to the road and a little later you will pass the Waldschenke restaurant. If you want, you can stop for a moment. Then you follow an unpaved ravine that was already used by the Romans.Back in the vineyards you get to the Moselblick view and then march in the direction of Ürzig. A wonderful and fragrant experience is a visit to the Ürziger rose and spice garden, a paradise for plant lovers. In a zigzag you descend through the themed gardens to Ürzig and are back at the starting point.
