The short circular walk high above the Moselle village of Piesport is ideal for a short hike - on the tracks of Roman legionaries.
Based on numerous finds, it is proven that the Romans lived in Piesport over 2000 years ago and cultivated wine in the region. This left its mark on today's wine landscape, which can be explored on this hiking trail.Insights into the hiking tour:The high-level hike along the "Panorama Hiking Trail Piesport" is about 5 kilometres long. The hike leads through forests and meadows, often along the edge of the forest. On the way there are fantastic views of the Eifel and Hunsrück mountain ranges. At the "Großer Moselblick" there is a 180 degree panorama over the Moselle valley with the wine villages of Piesport, Minheim and Neumagen-Dhron - the highlight of this hike. In the immediate vicinity is the "Weislei" mountain hut - a perfect place to enjoy the surrounding countryside and get some refreshment.There are no rest stops along the way, but in the Moselle village of Piesport there are numerous restaurants offering typical Moselle food and drinks.
When the weather is favourable, you can watch hang-gliders swinging into the air at the jump ramp of Neumagen-Dhron. A signpost draws attention to this "detour" from the hiking trail.
