October 1, 2018
From Zell, the hometown of the "Schwarze Katz" wine, the 15th stage takes you along the steep vineyards towards Neef. Right at the beginning of the hike, it's steep and exciting. On the Collis steep path, there are two options for climbing the observation tower of the same name: Either you climb on wire ropes on the fixed rope route and climb up ladders and steps or you choose the footpath that leads you up steep stone steps.Once at the top, you can enjoy the great view of Zell, the Mosel valley and the opposite Marienburg. Along the vineyards, you will hike in the connection with a beautiful view of the Moselle steadily downhill to Merl. From here, the trail climbs a bit again.Soon the Moselsteig leads you from the vineyards into a quiet forest. After about twelve kilometers, you will reach the Gasthaus Uncle Tom's Hut, where you can take a leisurely break. From here we continue through the forest. After a while, the forest opens and the Moselsteig runs again through the sun-drenched vineyards of the Mosel valley.From the vineyards, you can already see the town of Neef, your destination today, below you on the riverbank. After you have visited a last vantage point, the Moselsteig leads you down to Neef.With the Moselle Valley Railway you can then drive from here to Bullay and change to the bus line 333, which brings you back to the starting point Zell. Alternatively you can continue to Koblenz and start your journey home from there.Timetables can be found at vrt-info.de.
