The second stage of the Moselle Wine Railway Hiking Trail leads over the heights of Mont Royals, almost always with a view into the Moselle valley. This gives you great panoramic views of the Moselle Wine Railway, nestled in vineyards and idyllic wine villages. On information boards at selected vantage points you will find the timetable times when the Moselle Wine Railway passes by - ideal for memorable snapshots.
