Circular tour with slight incline from one part of the Moselle village of Neumagen-Dhron to the next. Ideal for those who want to get to know the place better.
Distance 12.1 km
Many animals such as goats, donkeys, cattle and horses graze on the lush meadows of the Dhorntal. In enclosures you can also see fallow deer and wild boars. With a bit of luck you can also watch an ice model on the Dhornbach. In the gentle Dhorn Valley, large gradients cannot be overcome at first. But to the glider airfield on the Neumagener Berg it goes a short distance steeply uphill.Insights into the hiking tour:The hike starts in the district of Dhorn and leads along the small river of the same name from the bridge to the district of Papiermühle, gently ascending through woods and meadows. On the Neumagen plateau, the hike initially continues straight ahead along field paths. This takes you past the glider airfield, from where you can watch the planes in good weather. In the further course of the route one reaches the edge of the valley again. At the edge of the vineyards you can enjoy wonderful views of the Moselle valley as well as nice places to rest. A perfect finish is provided by the numerous rest stops in Neumagen-Dhorn.
Backpack catering in Neumagen-Dhron (various possibilities) and take a short break at the rest area at the "Eisernen Wegweiser".
