September 28, 2018
From Mehring, the Moselle meanders in narrow loops through the mountainous landscape of the Eifel and Hunsrück. At the beginning of your today's tour you cross the Mosel and follow the Moselsteig on the right river bank over a steep, wooded slope uphill. At the end of the ascent you will find a summit cross and a wonderful view of the Moselle valley below you.After a short breather it continues. From now on, the trail only rises slightly. You wander through a dense forest, but between the trunks you can always see the Moselle deep below you. At the highest point of today's stage, which you reach after about seven kilometers, you will find the Lookout Tower Five Lakes View. High above the treetops, from the tower, you have a fantastic view of the Mosel loops.Through dense forest area, it goes downhill towards the riverbank. You hike leisurely downhill until the forest opens and reveals the view of a vast wine-growing region and the Mosel valley. You follow the Moselsteig through the vineyards until you reach Leiwen in your stage destination.From the stage destination Leiwen you can also take the bus 333 back to Mehring or Trier station if you want to finish your hike after this stage.Timetables can be found at vrt-info.de.
