komoot planned a hike.
July 27, 2018
Freshly rested, you start your fifth stage in Bassenheim. On dirt roads it goes around the small town once. Today, you'll hike over a hilly plateau with alternating forest and field sections. Along the Belltalbach you descend in the direction of the Moselle, from which the plateau at the southern edge is bounded. Before you reach the Moselle, it goes up steeply on narrow serpentine paths again.The Moselle has cut a dramatic valley into the landscape at this point and the Rheinburgenweg runs directly above the river on the steep northern slope. On the trail you have a fantastic view of the Moselle, the endless vineyards and especially on the impressive Moselle Valley Bridge. The trail will take you past a motorway service area with lookout point and then directly under the bridge.Then it goes evenly downhill to Winningen on the Moselle, your current milestone. The path initially runs above the Moselle and then meanders through a narrow side valley down to the cozy wine village.From Winningen on the Mosel the regional train line RB81 will take you comfortably to Koblenz.The timetable can be found at bahn.de/moseltalbahn/view/fahrplan/uebersicht.shtml
