With the help of themed panels and sculptures, the topics of geology, man and history are creatively presented. As a hiker, you also have the opportunity to creatively and sportily engage with stones.

The "Mesenicher Steinreichskäpp" cultural trail is an experience in the WeinKulturLand Moselle.  As part of the Moselle Experience Route, the long-distance hiking trail between Trier and Koblenz, it enriches the many themed trails in an artistic and humorous way.The focus of the cultural trail is man, who created the Moselle culture in the area of tension between nature and landscape.

Here in Mesenich, the central themes are grouped around geology: water, stone and wine - this short formula is followed by the content and design of our cultural project. It is above all the heads of Mesenich personalities carved in stone and the playful handling of stones that make the "Steinreichs-käpp" so special.

Hikers are also offered the opportunity to get creative and sporty with stones. Our culture trail leads along well-maintained paths from "Brie-der Schweiz" to the "Skulpturenpark Senheim" (Senheim Sculpture Park) through three experiential and

 themed areas:

- Moselle shore: water

- Mesenich village: building stones and top wines

- Vineyard trail: stone and wine
