General information


Starting point is the vicarage in Kobern, from where a narrow serpentine path goes uphill, giving the first lovely views over the Mosel valley. Arriving on a plateau, the hiker is in contact with the fascinating world of wine-making. Keeping in close touch with nature, the path leads into the valley to the Gerlach Mill. Here the trail starts into the dreamlike Keverbach valley with idyllic forests and lively rippling brooks. Past the buildings at Solligerhof, a varied landscape appears to the hiker: everything is offered, from the fabulous distant view, to open plateaus, flowering hedges and cool high forests.

A diversion leads to the celtic place of worship: the Golo Ring. The path continues through venerable birch and mixed deciduous forests until at the edge of the forest there is a great view of Wolken and its surroundings. The route continues past the Sauerbrunnen and the Quidoborn, two natural mineral springs. After being refreshed by the delicious water, the next climb is easily conquered and is rewarded with a fantastic view of the impressive St. Mathew’s Chapel and the Oberburg Castle. The final descent over the crossroads also offers overwhelming views and a recommendable detour to the ruin of Niederburg Castle, before reaching the destination of Kobern.

Safety Guidelines

In some passages surefootedness and a head for heights are required.

Safety guidance – stay safe whilst hiking on the Traumpfade/Traumpfädchen

Hikers like narrow pathways, unspoilt natural trails (leading over the forest floor, across the grass or alongside streams) and rocky climbs which lead to spectacular views. It goes without saying that particular care should be exercised when taking such routes. 

Things to bear in mind when preparing for your hike       

  • Wear proper clothing that is appropriate to the weather conditions and that will protect you against the cold and the wet or the heat and the sun.
  • Schedule suitable breaks during your hike and make sure that you conserve energy.
  • Take sufficient liquids with you. Establishments selling refreshments are not available everywhere.
  • When hiking on the Traumpfade, please wear appropriate hiking boots which provide a sufficient foothold on slippery, steep, rocky and uneven paths.
  • If you do not feel that you are able to negotiate certain parts of the route, then you should avoid such sections or else turn back. Natural pathways may become muddy and treacherous, especially in unfavourable weather.
  • In autumn in particular, please remember that leaves lying on the ground may be concealing bumps, routes, stones or holes in the path.
  • You will need to expect route impairments of this kind if you are intending to undertake a hike.
  • Before setting out, visit https://www.traumpfade.info/traumpfade/wege-status/ in order to find out whether the route you intend to hike is closed or whether diversions are in place. Construction works, timber felling or other disruptions may also be planned.
  • Recommended hiking season: April to October
