Relaxed hiking trail with wonderful views of the Moselle and Dhrontal with refreshment stops at a horse farm or in the Rauchfang restaurant at the start or finish of the tour (cd).
Distance 6.4 km
The high path begins and ends at one of the most spectacular views of the Moselle valley, the Zummethöhe: the Moselle flows in a wide arc around the wine town of Trittenheim with its famous "Apotheke" and "Altärchen" vineyards, a Moselle loop like a picture book! The path also offers views of the "Dhrönchen" (valley of the "small" Dhron), where the writer Stefan Andres was born. You pass horse pastures to the riding stables "Hof Kron" with a stop in the "Reiterstube". There are no major inclines to be overcome on this circular route (cd).
