Insights into the hiking tour:
The "Moselsteig Seitensprung" is named after the city's heraldic animal, the bear. It starts over the roofs of the old town and leads back to Bernkastel-Kues in a 6.5 km loop. The hiking trail offers hikers great views of the Moselle town and its castle Landshut. Mostly on narrow, unspoilt paths, you climb up through the shady "Kallenfels"-valley to a height of around 400 metres above sea level. Past an old burial mound, you can admire views of the Hunsrück and Eifel mountain ranges from a spacious meadow area.
There are no places to stop for refreshments along the way, so don't forget to pack your rucksack. At the beginning or end of the tour there are numerous hiker-friendly places to stop in Bernkastel-Kues.
