Out of the hustle city and into the wild. the Burg-Olymp-Tour leads on paths through the forest around Bernkastel and to beautiful vantage points like the St. Anna Chapel, the Wilhelmshöhe and the Olymp - the highest elevation of the hike.
Insights into the hiking tour:
This hike offers beautiful views of the Moselle valley, a varied landscape and insights into the history of the Moselle town of Bernkastel-Kues. From the car park on the banks of the Moselle, the route leads to the Tourist Information Office at the "Gestade" in Bernkastel: the official starting point of the tour. Passing the St. Anna Chapel, the tour continues through the forest towards the "gold digger"town of Andel. The Olymp viewpoint, which can be reached about halfway along the hike, is an ideal resting place. Descend to the castle ruins of Landshut, whose oldest walls date from the 4th century B.C.
There are nice places to stop for refreshments in the old town of Bernkastel-Kues as well as along the route in the restaurant of Burg Landshut.
