Starting point of the hike is the wine village Osann-Monzel. Its old winegrowers' houses and pretty half-timbered houses in the winding alleys are characteristic of this village.Insights into the hiking tour:The starting point Osann-Monzel is located between the mountains Hüttenkopf and Rosenberg, in a side valley of the Moselle, through which a river loop of the Moselle ran millions of years ago. Later, the Moselle has dug a more direct course through the Rhenish Slate Mountains. From the Monzeler Hüttenkopfweg you get a good idea of this geological development. In these old river valleys and on the slopes of their circulating mountains, as well as on the present course of the river itself, viticulture is successfully practised. The Monzeler Hüttenkopf is with 423.4 m above sea level the second highest elevation of the Moselle mountains. A shady forest path leads up.There are no stops along the way, but many nice places to rest.

Author’s recommendation

At the end of the tour, make a small stop at the island of rest and enjoy the magnificent view of the Moselle valley from the sensory bench.

Turn-by-turn directions

The start is at the Monzel community centre. First you continue along Brunnenstraße until you reach the crossing with Hüttenkopfstraße. There you turn left towards meadows and forest. Through orchards you continue parallel to the edge of the forest. You enter the forest and follow forest paths up to the Monzeler Hüttenkopf. Below the second highest elevation of all the Moselle mountains (423.4 m above sea level) you pass a large clearing, which offers views of the district town of Wittlich and the Wittlicher Senke. The summit itself, however, is forested. Downhill you follow an old cattle drive above an abandoned quarry. Over tree roots this narrow path leads you downhill and crosses a forest path. Then you walk over a meadow orchard into the vineyards, where a beautiful view of the Moselle valley opens up.  You descend through the vineyards to the outskirts of Monzel and then make a small detour to an island of peace above the village church of St. Nicholas.

Durchschnittlicher Wanderweg ohne große Höhepunkte. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist als „Leicht“ angegeben: Der Aufstieg zum 250 m höheren Hüttenkopf sollte aber nicht auf die leichte Schulter genommen werden. Insbesondere deshalb, da keine Sitzmöglichkeiten am Weg sind. Positiv: Kein Lärm; Natur pur; nicht überlaufen.
