The hiking trail starts in the wine village Osann-Monzel, which is situated in a high valley 80m above the Moselle. Due to the special location of the village, a variety of views await the hiker.
Starting point of the hike is the wine village Osann-Monzel. Its old winegrowers' houses and pretty half-timbered houses in the winding alleys are characteristic of this village.Insights into the hiking tour:The starting point Osann-Monzel is located between the mountains Hüttenkopf and Rosenberg, in a side valley of the Moselle, through which a river loop of the Moselle ran millions of years ago. Later, the Moselle has dug a more direct course through the Rhenish Slate Mountains. From the Monzeler Hüttenkopfweg you get a good idea of this geological development. In these old river valleys and on the slopes of their circulating mountains, as well as on the present course of the river itself, viticulture is successfully practised. The Monzeler Hüttenkopf is with 423.4 m above sea level the second highest elevation of the Moselle mountains. A shady forest path leads up.There are no stops along the way, but many nice places to rest.
At the end of the tour, make a small stop at the island of rest and enjoy the magnificent view of the Moselle valley from the sensory bench.
