DAY 1: ARRIVAL TO ZELL
After your arrival you can explore the home of the Zeller Schwarze Katz. You should arrive early so that you can fully enjoy the first day. In the tranquil little Moselle town, there are a few cafes and restaurants to linger or you can take a leisurely boat trip on the Moselle and let the Moselle valley pass by. In the evening a sociable wine tasting awaits you at the winemaker (alternatively a sparkling wine tasting - specify when booking). We wish you a nice first holiday evening.
DAY 2: MOSELSTEIG SIDE JUMPG BRIEDELER SCHWEIZ | 10.5 KM | Ø 4 HOURS
Today's hike starts in Briedel. The circular hiking trail leads you through the forest to the Hindenburglay viewpoint. Uphill past beautiful slate cliffs you reach the highest point, here a detour to Beinter Kopf is recommended, a rest area with fantastic views over Zell and the remains of a Roman mountain sanctuary. From now on it's mostly downhill back to the starting point. In the evening, let your tired hiking legs relax in Germany's only Glauber's salt thermal bath, in the Bad Bertrich spa, 15 km away.
DAY 3: MOSELSTEIG SIDE JUMP ROCKS.BARRELS.HALF-TIMBERED | 8.7 KM | Ø 3.5 HOURS
The start and finish of the circular hike is the wine-growing village of Sankt Aldegund, 8 km away. In the historic center, in the midst of romantic alleys and half-timbered houses, you begin the hike, which initially leads uphill to a forest recreation area. From here there are wonderful views of the Moselle valley. Another highlight is the terrace landscape with dry stone walls and interesting rock formations. You return to the starting point through one of the largest areas of wild boxwood. After the hike, we invite you to visit an old vaulted cellar with a wine museum and gourmet factory. As a memento of your Moselle vacation, you can take a small souvenir home with you.
LATE AFTERNOON: DEPARTURE FROM ZELL
In the afternoon you start your journey home from your wellness and hiking holiday. In the last few days you could relax and gather nature experiences during the hikes. Or book an extension day.
