    RheinBurgenWeg without castles! No castle view, no castle tour. But very beautiful, imaginative trails, well maintained and rows of beautiful views. On Moselle bridges, vineyards, winegrowing villages, but no castles. I would also take castle ruins ...
    Instead, I stand at the knight's fall. An unfortunate enamored knight has plunged here from the Koblenzer rock into the depths. Nobody saw it, but one knew some time ago someone who had heard of it. What a pity!
    My hike begins with this tragedy. And everything goes downhill .... miles! The Schwedenschanze stops me. Tragedy, dear heart. Koblenz must be saved from the Swedes. Meter-high protective ramparts are being erected in the forest area around Koblenz. Some three in a row with imposingly deep ditches. Although this does not replace a castle, it leaves no impression and comes from the late Middle Ages. Which I have the temporal relation to the castle time restored in about.
    It goes downhill through the district Karthause on the most beautiful panoramic path. Views full! On the other side of the Moselle, I can see the Rb just stopping in Winningen. Still pretty far to Winn ...
    Do not complain, run! Downhill it goes this time quickly and almost imperceptibly we arrived at the entrance of Moselweiss on the Mosel bridge. In the middle of the bridge a picture of the view and on to Güls. Only along the banks of the Moselle to the exit Güls, and from there into the mountains. We go over orchards and vineyards and approach Winningen almost imperceptibly. It goes higher and higher - the vineyards are getting steeper - Winningen is deep below us. Let's be honest: only 500 meters at this altitude and then it should go down to the place! This looks like a typical downhill climbing ramp from the 50s. Fast and cheap ....
    But - the way down is modern for Moselans. Every 10 meters an old vineyard pylon rammed into the ground. People hold you, it goes down. Steep, but decent. Even the dog is satisfied, even if he initially did not want. He hates steep paths down. Finally, we even walk in the sewer to the catch basin. That's the case on the Mosel. And so we pretty soon get down in the village and trot our last 600 meters to the train station. The train we reach exactly.
    PS: We ran the RBW from Koblenz to Winningen. Arriving by the RE to Koblenz Hbf, then by taxi up to the parking lot Rittersturz.
    You can also walk from the main station to the knight's fall, about 5.1 km, but you can also overdo it ...
