The circular walk runs through the vineyard landscape of Piesport, where a rich flora and fauna has developed on the steep slopes surrounded by rocks and walls.
Like a huge amphitheatre, the Piesport Moselle arch opens to the south and already impressed the Roman scholar Ausonius. In the interplay between the natural diversity of the sites and a winegrowing culture that has lasted for thousands of years, many hundreds of plant and animal species have found a habitat here, some of which are considered rare and endangered. Thus the Moselle meander, like no other, creates a "record-breaking suspect" link between man and nature. A shining example of an intact wine culture landscape. Within the framework of the "Living Moselle Vineyards Initiative", this area has been awarded the title of "Lighthouse of Biodiversity" in 2018.Insights into the hiking tour:This hike leads along vineyard and farm paths through the famous "Piesporter Goltröpfchen" vineyard and offers not only wonderful views but also a special flora and cultural sights along the banks of the Moselle.
