Easy hike of 7.5 kilometres in length. Half of the tour leads - high above the Moselle - through vineyard paths, the rest through light forests.
Graach is a village situated directly on the Moselle in the holiday region Bernkastel-Kues. The balcony of Graach, the part of the village called Schäferei, captivates with its spectacular view of the Moselle valley. World famous are the theological vineyards of Graach: Himmelreich, Dompropst, Josephshöfer and Abtsberg. One of these vineyards - the "Graacher Himmerlreich" - is also the namesake of this hike.Insights into the hiking tour:On the wide, well-maintained paths, you can easily complete the hiking tour in just under 2 hours. Over forest and meadow paths, the hike takes you through the Moselle landscape - among other things, you will pass a drop-off point for para-gliders, as well as rest areas with beautiful views. The view into the Moselle valley is impressive. It is worth stopping and enjoying the view in all directions.On the way there are two stops, on the "Schäferei", high above the Moselle (see tip author).
The sheep farm is a district of the Moselle village of Graach, but this lies high above the Moselle. Here you can stop for a bite to eat during the hike: at Kemmer's Hotel or at the Philipps-Eckstein winery.
