Hikers can follow its path from its marshy source near Boxberg to its mouth in the Moselle near the village of Lieser on the enchanting Lieser Path. On four stages, they experience how the water has powerfully carved a path through the volcanic landscape. Maars, castles and mills line the path. A beautiful environment!Again and again, benches in peaceful places offer an opportunity to rest tired feet for a while and to eat some of the provisions you have brought along. Once the hiker has reached the Moselle, he can proudly look back on a total distance of 74 kilometres. And perhaps he will then agree with Manuel Andrack, who named the Lieserpfad the "most beautiful hiking trail in the world" in one of his books, with a smile on his face.
