The Moselsteig Trail: Stages, “Seitensprünge” trails and “Traumpfade” trails
The Moselsteig Trail runs along the entire German side of the Mosel River from Perl at the German-
French-Luxembourg border to the mouth of the river in Koblenz – an incredible 365 kilometres. Because this is a bit too much for even the most committed hiker, the trail is divided into a total of 24 stages. And if that still isn’t enough, we recommend our 32 partner trails, all of which are circular in layout: the Moselsteig Seitensprünge trails and the Mosel Traumpfade/ Traumpfädchen trails.
Whichever you choose, you’ll find your way to experiencing more.
There are numerous towns and villages spread out along the entireMoselsteig Trail that are perfect for detours. Whether it’s a stop for refreshments or an overnight stay, enjoy the long tradition of hospitality that exists between Perl and Koblenz. Book your accommodation here:

Hiking gives you an appetite. And, of course, it makes you thirsty too. How fortunate it is then that hospitality has such a long tradition along the Mosel, and that good food and wine are a match made in heaven here. As well as countless opportunities to taste typical Mosel cuisine, there are also a significant number of top restaurants, some of which have achieved Michelin stars or other international seals of approval. Like hiking as well as enjoying an indulgence or two? Then we have a great holiday package for you.
There are plenty of stages, partial routes and circular trails that don’t overtax small feet and give adults a good feeling right from the planning stage. And when you’re out hiking, you can rely entirely on the excellent markings and signposting throughout.
In that case, we have good news: Most of the stages and all of the partner trails can be completed by dogs without any problem - provided they have the necessary fitness for the respective distances and altitudes. Only stage 21, from Moselkern to Löf, has the obstacle of a climbing passage with ladder, but you can avoid this by taking the signposted diversion. There are often steps, narrow paths and rocky stretches to negotiate, but these aren’t really all that challenging for most dogs. Important: Always take enough water with you!
See for yourself!
The Moselsteig Trail – Surprising. Challenging. Thrilling. Sometimes the trail runs through forests and vineyards, sometimes along the banks of the Mosel, sometimes through picturesque villages and quite upwards into the uplands. Easy to navigate hiking trails alternate with rocky and narrow paths and there are even several climbs to master. Numerous vantage points provide unforgettable views – and the proximity to nature and history-rich culture is tangible everywhere.

In the golden Mosel autumn, namely each year at the start of November, the Moselsteig shows its beauty one last time. This is when the Wünschelrouten hiking event takes place; a series of guided hikes that promise exceptional tours in pleasant company.

The joie de vivre of the Mosel people, local wines and the culinary delights of the Mosel region are the basis for a multitude of events between Perl and Koblenz – so it's always worth taking a look at the rich calender of events when planning your hiking holiday!
