Since the Protestant Reformation, the many small villages around the Hunsrück town of Kleinich make up a parish, the Lutheran “Kirchspiel” of Kleinich. This name has remained until today, even when, after the French Revolution, the civil regional authority was created and the “Kirchspiel” (parish) was turned into the municipality of Kleinich. Pretty, slate-clad farms and houses characterise these villages. They are spread four to five hundred meters across the Moselle in a hilly, open landscape, occasionally interrupted by densely forested creek valleys. The up and down of mountain and valley with fantastic views characterise a hike on the Side Trail “Kirchspiel’s Valley Tour”.
Take a picknick lunch with you! There is no possibility to buy refreshments or supplies on the way.
An ideal path for lovers of peace and seclusion!
Please be very careful when hiking on wet rocky sections. It might be impossible to cross the river on the stepping stones at high water.
