On the last stage, tired legs can relax again. The route leads leisurely out of the historic town centre of Wittlich towards the Moselle.

The fourth and last section of the Lieser Trail leads the hiker across the Wittlicher Senke, past colourful sandstone rocks and the Roman villa, whose excavation site is worth a short detour. The trail now leads through Plattener Schweiz and along the Siebenborn monastery mill, which offers a stop for refreshments, to the charming wine village of Lieser on the Moselle. Here the Lieser Trail ends at the mouth of the river. Those who are still fit can continue walking along the Moselle to neighbouring Bernkastel-Kues.

 

Highlights along the way:

- Old town of Wittlich

- Roman villa

- Siebenborn wine and monastery complex

- Roman wine press at Maring-Noviand

- Lieser Castle

- Wine taverns (Platten/ Maring-Noviand/ Lieser)

Ein sehr schöner Weg, der zwar erst sehr verhalten beginnt mit etwas Asphalt, sich aber in seiner vollen Pracht entfaltet. Diese Etappe ist sehr abwechslungsreich durch Wald, durch Dörfer und über Wiesen.

Sind mit dem Bus von Wittlich nach Großlittgen und von dort über den Lieserpfad zurück. Leider ist der Weg entlang der Straße bis zum Einstieg des Lieserpfads ausgeschildert. Der Pfad verläuft parallel zum Fluss Lieser. Es führt über schmale Pfade und breite Wege, über Brücken, vorbei an mehreren Mühlen. Erst am Ende unmittelbar entlang der Lieser. Waldweg ohne besondere Highlights.
