travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Cochem

Start your hiking holiday on the Moselle and explore the city of Cochem. If you wish, you can take a boat trip on the Moselle or hike to the Reichsburg. End the day with a winegrower with cheese and wine.

Day 2 - Hike Moselsteig Trail Stage 19
Cochem to Treis-Karden

This first stage of your hike on the Moselsteig is quite demanding and requires good surefootedness. It goes up and down through beautiful nature in the Dortebach valley, along vineyards and stream valleys. You can overcome the first meters of altitude with a cable car and reach the Pinnerkreuz with a great view of Cochem and the Moselle. You will walk past a rushing waterfall and if you are lucky you will see the native Apollo butterfly or the green lizard. Shortly before the stage destination Treis-Karden you can take a detour to the Martberg Archeology Park, a Roman-Celtic sanctuary.

Day 3 - Hike Moselsteig Trail Stage 20
Treis-Karden to Moselkern

Today's varied stage of the Moselsteig begins at the Moseldom, the church with the impressive towers of Treis-Karden, which leads you steadily uphill through stands of boxwood and over rocky paths to the Kompeskopf refuge. You then hike through the wild and romantic forest gorge of the Krailsbach. Safety ropes help with the steep descent over rocks before you come to the Elz Valley on the Müdener Berg with the Kreuzweg chapel. The fairytale Eltz Castle rises up in front of you and invites you to visit. Take your time and immerse yourself in the Middle Ages. Now it is not far to Moselkern, where you are staying today.

Day 4
Own managed departure from Moselkern

Your active hiking holiday on the Moselsteig is coming to an end. You are welcome to plan additional days, after all, a total of seven castles are within walking distance from Moselkern.

Additional nights Extensions
You can arrive earlier or extend your vacation afterwards. You can reserve additional nights as a pre- or post-night stay when booking your trip. Should you wish to stay one more night in a location during your trip, please let us know using the comment field of your booking or give us a call.

Bed tax Guest tax
We would like to point out that some cities levy a culture tax or bed tax. The fees will be collected directly at your accommodation.

Short-term travel requests
Even short-term travel requests require a binding booking, as otherwise availabilities cannot be queried. If the trip is not possible due to a lack of availability, we will provide you with an alternative offer upon request. If you do not wish this, your booking will be canceled free of charge.

A booking confirmation / invoice is issued to the travel applicant for each booking. If you are traveling as a group, but would like separate invoices, please make separate bookings, stating a group name. Subsequent splitting of processes and invoices is not technically possible.

The down payment is 30% of the travel price plus insurance premium (if travel insurance is also taken out) after receipt of the booking confirmation. The remaining payment is due four weeks before the start of the journey. For bookings less than 6 weeks before the start of the journey, the entire travel price is due immediately.
