Deep and distant views
Even from the start of this stage in Traben-Trarbach, the Moselsteig Trail elates with its unusually charming views: the path follows steep hairpin bends up to the romantic ruins of Grevenburg Castle and once again reveals an enchanting view of the traditional Art Nouveau town. A further climb is rewarded by spectacular viewpoints and unforgettable views over the Moselle Valley. The wine-making village of Enkirch, with its many half-timbered houses, exudes pure, unadulterated Moselle charm and romance. From there, the trail heads downstream through vineyards to Reil where you can bring the day's hiking to a very pleasant end in the village's many ancient cellars and old wine gardens.
This stage can also be split into two sections, as there is a bus stop (Zell – Traben-Trarbach) only 200 metres way from the main trail in Enkirch (signposted link road). The two sections are then 8 km (to Traben-Trarbach) and 7 km (to Reil). The bus stops in Traben-Trarbach and Reil are both on the Hunsrück side on the B 53.
