So close and yet so different: the cities of Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach are connected by the Moselle and separated by the mountain. Bernkastel-Kues is known for its half-timbered houses, the wine festival and its famous vineyars. Traben-Trarbach is the art nouveau city par excellence, with underworlds and a Buddha museum. The way is signposted with the scallop of the Mosel-Camino.
Insights into the hiking tour:
The route along the Moselle from Bernkastel-Kues to Traben-Trarbach is about 25 kilometres. If you walk over the Moselle mountains it's only about 6.5 kilometres. The way on the "Mosel-Camino" between the two cities is not only very popular because of the short distance, guests like to combine the hike with a boat trip and thus save themselves the way back (check departure times beforehand). Sometimes there is a very steep ascent through the vineyards. Therefore the motto is: walk slowly!
