The stage between Leiwen and Neumagen-Dhron offers hikers a fascinating experience of both nature and the surrounding landscape. Initially the trail takes hikers along thrilling paths through vineyards and past ancient rock cliffs. It then continues past hedgerows, woodland and wildlife reserves. What is more, the stage affords hikers a view that even connoisseurs of the Moselle return to again and again. In Neumagen-Dhron, Germany's oldest wine-making village, the path ends at the landing stage of the "Stella Noviomagi", the faithful reproduction of a Roman wine vessel.
The grassy plateau above the slate caves is perfect for stopping off to rest your feet. The resting place lies a little way from the trail and is therefore somewhat quieter but the view is just as lovely as the more well-known spots.
