Gentle ascents make this circular hike an easy tour. This hike is named after the former Franciscan convent in Brauneberg. It was added to the Andrea Tower, which serves as a bell tower and dates from the 11th century, making it one of the oldest Christian buildings in the region. Today there is a local history museum on the ground floor. Insights into the hiking tour:The Klostergartenweg starts at the former Franciscan convent of Filzen, with its baroque church and Andrea tower. The former estates of the Franciscan nuns can now be impressively hiked along the Klostergartenweg. Wonderful views of the Moselle valley await you along the way. In addition, the alternation between meadows, fields, vineyards and ancient forests shows the beauty of the cultural landscape. With its gentle ascents, the tour is also suitable for less experienced hikers and children.In Brauneberg there are various places to stop for a bite to eat, the Straußwirtschaften are very beautiful.

Author’s recommendation

Ideal for families with children, because it is an easy tour. Between May and October the ostrich taverns in the village are open: it is worth a visit.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Franziskannerinen monastery in Brunnenstraße you walk uphill a little. Over a narrow path - through a mixed forest - you then walk to the Filzener refuge. Small stairs and a path winding through the deciduous forest lead you to a wider forest hiking trail.Along this forest path there are information boards about the tree nature trail Filzen. At the end of the nature trail, the view over the Moselle valley and the wine villages Brauneberg, Mülheim, Maring-Noviand, Kesten and Osann-Monzel is very beautiful. Slightly ascending and over soft forest soil you continue through the open landscape. Wide meadows alternate with cultivated fields. Above the vineyards the panorama changes: the Hunsrück with the villages of Burgen, Gornhausen and Veldenz is in sight. Along the edge of the forest, then again through an open field landscape, you continue towards Brauneberg. A signpost shows you the way to the Jewish cemetery Brauneberg. The detour of about 500 m is worthwhile: a board informs you about the meaning and the historical background of the burial place.Afterwards, the path takes you through the corridor, which is still called the "Klostergarten" (monastery garden) today. In 1810 the former monastery complex and the community of nuns in Filzen was secularised (dissolved) under Napoleon. The wine and field names Klostergarten, Nonnenberg or also Nonneneck originate from this time. Above the vineyards you go back to the starting point. A visit to the monastery complex and the Moselle local history museum after the hike is certainly worthwhile.

Sehr schöne, abwechslungsreiche Wanderung, nicht nur über Asphalt, sondern auch Schotter und Waldwege. Sehr schöne Aussicht hat man, genug Wasser für die Vierbeiner sollte mitgenommen werden. Die Anstiege sind relativ leicht, nicht allzu steil. der Weg ist gut ausgeschildert, man kann sich also nicht verlaufen, wenn man kein Wandernavigationsgerät dabei hat. Wir waren 11,3 km unterwegs. Es hat jedem von uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht, vor allem unsere Hündin kam auf ihre Kosten.
