travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Bernkastel-Kues
In the old town of Bernkastel-Kues

Note: Arrival by car necessary
You travel to Bernkastel-Kues and thus to one of the oldest wine-growing regions in Germany. Stroll through the small alleys and marvel at the fairytale-like backdrop with the ancient half-timbered houses. Visit the Viticulture Museum and learn about the work of winemakers. In the cylinder house museum you will see grandiose oldtimers and will be transported back to the 50s and 60s. The first day of your hiking holiday on the Moselle is rounded off with a dinner in the restaurant of the cylinder house museum.

Day 2 - Hike Moselsteig Trail
Side Jump Moseltalschanzen
Moselle excursion boat near Ürzig

You start the ascent at Graacher Tor up to a forest tavern. From there you hike through a wooded area to the Graacher Schanzen, remains of a defensive system from the 18th century. After about 500 meters, your way down into the Moselle valley to the Art Nouveau town of Traben-Trarbach begins. If you want, you can take the boat back from here in a relaxed manner. The very active follow the approximately 9 km long remainder of this Moselsteig Trail side jump to Bernkastel-Kues.

Day 3 - Hike Moselsteig Trail
Side Jump Bernkasteler Bärensteig
Glasses with different wines at the vineyard

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
Hiker in a flower field on the Moselsteig trail

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.

general info

Holidays Major events
You should book a trip during the holiday weeks, to wine and street festivals or other major events in good time. There may be a surcharge, minimum nights or changes in the program.

Meals Half board Packed lunches
The travel price includes the corresponding rich breakfast for each night of our travel programs. Additional nights and extensions are also included breakfast.

The booking of half board and also packed lunches is possible via the item "Additional services accommodation".

Our tip
Book the packed lunch right away. So you are well equipped during your hikes and independent of the few refreshments at the edge of the trail and their opening hours.

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.

List of accommodation
Specific accommodation names are not available prior to a fixed booking. The background to this is the possibility of daily arrival, which for us excludes the purchase of fixed room quotas. In addition, we work together with several accommodation partners per location – always matching the respective theme of the trip and the requirements of the individual booking.

Special food and accommodation
Necessary requests for special dietary or allergy-prone nutrition or physical limitations are communicated to our service partners with the fixed booking without obligation.

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.

Invoice
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.

Payment
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.

Travel documents
The travel applicant receives the travel documents and the service vouchers for all travel participants by post approx. 14 days before arrival - provided that the travel price has been paid in full. One set of travel documents is created for each room. This includes: a detailed day-to-day travel description, the hotel list with addresses and check-in information, maps with further tips for visiting and sightseeing, city and local maps, as well as recommendations for places to stop and an emergency contact list. In the case of short-term bookings and a foreign address, we will store the complete travel documents in your first hotel. You will receive the exact travel description including the hotel list in advance by email.

Travel insurance
We recommend that you take out travel insurance including travel cancellation, interruption, rebooking fees and luggage insurance. You can find further information on this under the item "explanations" "Travel Insurance" on our homepage.
