A small but fine circular route that is really something! The ascent is rewarded with breathtaking views of the magnificent Moselle landscape!
The hike starts at the bridge gate and follows the historic fire trail through the vineyards to the war memorial. From there the so-called lower French staircase with its 100 steps leads steeply up to the Grevenburg. The newly developed spiral staircase in the so-called "Hollow Barrel" allows you to exit to the viewing platform and continue your ascent via the upper French Staircase to the Gate to Heaven. Here you can enjoy a magnificent view over the Grevenburg, Traben-Trarbach and the Moselle loop to Mont-Royal.
Plan a little more time and strengthen yourself in the castle tavern of the Grevenburg!
