Back to the Middle Ages through expansive open countryside.
This stage takes you from the wine-making villages of Kesten and Osann-Monzel to historic Bernkastel-Kues. The trail passes impressive rocky cliffs with splendid visible layers of slate and crosses world-renowned vineyards, such as Braunberger Juffer. It then starts climbing steeply across the slope with occasional views of the Moselle. Along the way, a wealth of wonderful resting spots invite you to rest awhile and possibly refuel. Finally the trail brings you to Landshut Castle, which sits majestically high above Bernkastel-Kues and reveals an awe-inspiring view over the Moselle and the famous Moselle town, in the picturesque Old Town of which this stage ends.
