Promising tour with many small ascents. For the most part it leads on wide paths through the forest of the Moselle village Andel.

Starting point of this hike is Andel, a district of Bernkastel-Kues.In Andel, the Goldbach ripples through an unspoilt forest landscape. Smaller gold nuggets have been found here in the clear water. A relaxing walk is still worthwhile here today - even if gold finds are no longer likely ...Insights into the hiking tour:It is almost always along the Goldbach, in former times gold is said to have been dug here in some places. On the way there are benches and also a roofed shelter to rest. There are also spectacular views of the Moselle valley, the most impressive of which are from the "Wilhelmshöhe" and the Andeler Refuge. The Goldbach is not only a constant companion but also the name giver of this hike.There are no refreshment stops along the way, so it is advisable to stop for refreshments in Andel at the beginning or end of the hike, or for rucksack refreshments during the hike.

General information

Directions

Past the gold digger well in the centre of Andel, the trail first takes you along the forest road, then along meadows and animal enclosures to the edge of the forest, where you can already hear the gold stream ripple!  Always uphill you walk along the brook.  You continue to walk until you reach a forest path near the spring and the edge of the forest. From here you continue on forest paths that meander slowly downhill. From time to time there are spectacular views of the Moselle valley, the most impressive of which are from the "Wilhelmshöhe" and the Andeler Refuge. From the meadow area at the hut a small path leads you down to a path which is located below the hut. Follow this path back to Andel.

Safety Guidelines

The hike starts in the wine village Andel, watch out for traffic.

Equipment

Sturdy, stable shoes, don't forget your rucksack.

Tip

As a stopover, I would recommend a visit to a winery in Andel. Backpack food for on the way in Bernkastel-Kues and then enjoy on the "Wilhelmshöhe"!
