Klausen is a much visited place of pilgrimage. Not only pilgrims find their way to Klausen on foot via the Eifel or Moselle Camino. Since 1997, the motorcycle pilgrimage has been attracting bikers every year to the start of the motorcycle season, since 2014 tractors have been chugging to Chiusa and their owners have had their vehicles blessed for an always good ride. Many visitors also come from the nearby Moselle valley, have wine in their luggage and start their personal pilgrimage. Hence the name: because the wine pilgrimage path connects the pilgrimage place Klausen with the Moselle wine places Piesport and Osann-Monzel. Some passages lead along the Moselle Camino and old pilgrim paths.Insights into the hiking tour:Due to the special routing, the hike offers wonderful views of the Eifel, the Hunsrück and the Moselle valley. There are nice places to stop for refreshments in the wine village of Osann-Monzel, and great rest and view points await you at many points along the route.
A visit to the abbey garden is worthwhile. On the upper level numerous herbs are planted and given names and the view into the Salm valley is also very beautiful.
