October 9, 2020
The "Brauneberger Juffer" vineyard extends over the sun-drenched slopes of the Moselle. Usually vineyards are named after the neighboring place, in Brauneberg it was the other way around: until 1925 the place was called Dusemond. Without steep inclines, this circular hike is also suitable for children.The hiking car park on the Brauneberg, which is opposite the place of the same name on the other bank of the Moselle, is the starting point of this hike. From there you hike in the direction of Osann-Monzel - on one side of the path colorful autumn forest, on the other side gentle vineyards. On the way you have almost continuously changing views over the Moselle loops and the wine town of Brauneberg with its crooked church tower. After almost two kilometers on the sun-drenched hiking trail, you will reach the “Monzeler Kitten” viewpoint, named after the local vineyard.It continues gently downhill closer to the banks of the Moselle. The hiking trail now runs parallel to the main road on the Moselle through the vines. At the foot of the Brauneberg there is a restored Roman wine press - the Romans already appreciated the wine from this area. The Roman wine presses that were found here are the oldest north of the Alps and make the Middle Moselle the cradle of wine growing in Germany. Then continue towards Liesertal, where you turn left and follow the path back to higher elevations. With a view of the Moselle, it goes back to the starting point on the Brauneberg.
