Etappe 09: Von Vallendar nach Koblenz – Rheinsteig
komoot planned a hike.
September 11, 2018
With less than ten kilometers, the ninth stage is by far the shortest stage on the Rheinsteig. But that's a good thing, because in this way you have enough time to explore the impressive fortress Ehrenbreitstein at the stage finish of today's tour.From Vallendar you follow the Rheinsteig through a light forest landscape on the outskirts of the city. The trail climbs gently and leads you out onto wide fields and meadows.Soon it goes a little downhill and you pass the place Urbar. Immediately afterwards the ascent to the fortress begins. The extensive parade ground around the fortress was redesigned for the Federal Garden Show 2011 and is freely accessible. A special highlight is the spectacular viewing platform.After you have strolled through the park, it is worth of course a visit to the fortress and the attached museum. Especially exciting: There is also a youth hostel in the fortress so you do not have to look far for accommodation.Everything about the hostel can be found at diejugendherbergen.de/jugendherbergen/koblenz/portrait.
