The Deutschherrenweg starts from Zeltingen-Rachtig, a wine village on the Moselle. It is an easy circular route through the forest and vineyards above the village. It leads past orchards and vineyards through the vineyards of Himmelreich, Schloßberg and Sonnenuhr, among others. There are only small gradients along the route. Prominently in view is the new Hochmoselbrücke B50 new.Insights into the hiking tour:Across the meadow at the Bartholomäushütte you reach a small path which leads to the uppermost vineyard path at the edge of the valley. Here a varied panorama awaits the hiker. The big white cross, the "Three Firs", the Hochmosel bridge, the scout's home of the "Deutschherrenstamms" and the Lösnich chapel are stations of this hike.There is no place to stop for refreshments along the route, but there is one "down below", on the Moselle in Zeltingen-Rachtig.
A detour to the Machern monastery on the opposite side of the Moselle. Here you will find a museum of dolls, toys and icons and a brewery.
