The very active follow the approximately 9 km long remainder of this Moselsteig Trail side jump to Bernkastel-Kues.
DAY 3: MOSELSTEIG SIDE JUMP BERNKASTELER BÄRENSTEIG | 7 KM | Ø 3 HOURS
An archbishop of Trier once had an adventure with a bear, from which the name of the city Bernkastel and thus this Moselsteig Trail side jump is derived. You hike over a few inclines and serpentines through Bernkasteler Schweiz, which accompanies you with the Tiefenbach. The Bresgenruh lookout point is steeply above a small waterfall. In between, you can enjoy fantastic views again and again during your hike on the side jump. Even if the hike is quite short, it still requires a lot of stamina. The day ends with a Moselle evening with wine tasting.
DAY 4: DEPARTURE FROM BERNKASTEL-KUES
You are leaving today and take home many wonderful memories of a leisurely hiking trip on the Moselle. Or you can extend your vacation a little - additional nights are possible at any time.
