Magnificent views of the Moselle valley and the Eifel await you on this hike above the Moselle village of Piesport. The trail leads mainly along farm and forest paths through the cultural landscape around the Piesport mountain.Insights into the hiking tour:Don't worry - you don't have to climb Piesport Mountain with its many hairpin bends! You can hike for a good hour on the approximately five-kilometre-long circular trail. At first there are hardly any differences in altitude to overcome on the farm track. If you cut through the edge of the woods, you can enjoy wonderful views of the Piesporter Moselle loop. But you can also look far into the Eifel. After passages through the forest, you can stop for a break at the Moselpanorama Hotel shortly before the end of the tour. Here you can fortify yourself and get ready for the ascent, which leads via the Way of the Cross past the Spoar Chapel back to the starting point.In addition to the above-mentioned refreshment stop, there are other places along the Moselle in Piesport.

Author’s recommendation

At the perfect end of the hike, the Hotel Moselpanorama, situated between vineyards and forest, offers a nice place to stop for a break.

Destination

Piesporter Heiligenhäuschen

Turn-by-turn directions

From the Piesporter Heiligenhäuschen you walk on a farm track along the edge of the forest and enjoy views of the Eifel and Moselle landscape. The trail branches off at the Minheim refuge and soon after dives into the forest. A little further on you come to a fork in a forest path, which you follow down to the panorama road. A few metres further on, the path leads over asphalt to the junction with the L 50. On the valley side of the road, follow a farm track next to the crash barrier to the Hotel Moselpanorama. Uphill you go past the Spoar chapel and return to the starting point via a crossroads.

Schöne Wanderung mit Weitblick zu den Spitzen des Hunsrück der Eifel und dem Moseltal.Man muss ein kurzes Stück eine Bundesstraße überqueren und etwa 100 Meter entlang gehen,was aber nicht gefährlich ist. Über die ganze Strecke sind Kapellen und Heiligenhäuschen zu bestaunen. Ich werde diesen Weg bestimmt nochmals im Frühling gehen. Für Kinder geeignet, viel Laubwald.

Wanderung zuerst schön am Waldrand, dann lang auf neugeschotterter Straße auf Hochfläche. Ausichten eher mager. Dann aber gefährlich ohne erkennbare Wegweiterführung über 2 vielbefahrene Straßen, absolut kein Standard für eine Wanderwegführung. Im weiteren fehlt der Hinweis auf die gute Einkehr, nicht am Ende, sondern vor dem Anstieg Kapellenweg. Es muss dringend ein sichere Führung über die beiden Straßen gemacht werden!
