On the 13th stage of the Moselcaminos you will make a pilgrimage from Traben-Trarbach via Bernkastel-Kues to Klausen.

The tour begins with a steep climb and leads up to the Graacher Schanzen. From there you reach Bernkastel-Kues. From there, the tour takes you along the Moselle in a leisurely manner. Afterwards you have to master a demanding ascent, which is rewarded with a breathtaking view.

For every pilgrim, the pilgrimage church in Klausen is still a real highlight.

 

Author’s recommendation

The Graacher Schanzen are worth a detour to the Schanzenrundweg.

Pilgrims' stamps are available at the Traben-Trarbach Tourist Information Centre.

Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the Weihertorplatz and follow the shell signs, go into the Wildbadstraße, after 200 m behind the fountain turn right uphill into the Bernkasteler Weg. The T6 goes straight ahead, but we turn right immediately onto the T8 / M = Moselhöhenweg until we reach the "SAUSEN-ECK". There we turn left to Bernkastel-Kues, cross the Compener Bachtal and after about half an hour we reach the altitude of 395 m above sea level. There we can make a detour to the right to the Graacher Schanzen.

We go straight downhill, then after 40 m turn left to the inn "Eiserne Weinkarte".

At the Graacher Tor follow the yellow shells or in the city centre = pedestrian zone with the beautiful half-timbered houses. From the centre, cross the bridge to Kues, at the end left down the stairs to the Moselle. Follow the stairs to the end of the town, then leave the pavement on the left and follow the Moselle to Lieser. Follow the Moselle to Lieser until you reach the Mülheimer Brücke. Cross the road Wittlich - Mülheim, then turn right and follow the serpentines uphill with a view of the Moselle. In Monzel you can stop for a break, in Osann you can stay overnight. Continue uphill at approx. 425 m above sea level to the Minheimer Hütte. From there downhill to Klausen, where there is only a short climb to the finish.

Tipp: Gehen Sie am Graacher Tor in Bernkastel nicht wie ausgeschildert rechts ab, sondern durch das Tor in die Innenstadt mit malerischem Marktplatz und schönsten Fachwerkhäusern an der Mosel. An der Brücke stoßen Sie dann auf die ausgeschilderte Strecke
