Etappe 09: Von Neumagen nach Kesten – Moselsteig
komoot planned a hike.
September 28, 2018
The starting point of your ninth stage is Neumagen. Since from here the right bank of the Moselle runs quite flat, the Moselsteig leads across the river and on the other bank up to a steep ridge. In some hairpin bends you walk uphill to the lookout point Drachenfliegerplatz.If the weather is fine and the wind is right, you can actually watch kite flyers start up here. But even without the daredevils, the view down into the valley is absolutely worth seeing.Above the vineyards you follow the Moselsteig. Between the two observation rocks Rotlay and Burglay, the Moselsteig slopes a bit, because south of the two rocks, the Moselle makes a very narrow loop. The headland between the loop is only about 600 meters wide and you cross it at the narrowest point.From the viewpoint Burglay you have a great view of the Moselle. Along extensive vineyards you walk above the steep slope to the final destination Kesten.From the stage destination Kesten the bus line 301 will take you to Bernkastel-Kues. Here you can change to the bus line 333, which goes on to Neumagen, Trier main station or Traben-Trarbach station.Timetable information can be found at vrt-info.de.
