Nice circular path between two monasteries, with some ascents. Narrow paths as well as forest and vineyard paths alternate.
Insights into the hiking tour:
The "Klosterweg" trail can be started from both monastery complexes. A possible starting point is the Machern monastery, a former Cistercian nunnery near Zeltingen-Rachtig. At the start of the hike from the Machern monastery, the so-called "Dreifaltigkeit" (Trinity), a resting place, is passed first. Further highlights are the Siebenborn monastery and numerous beautiful views of the Lieser and Moselle valleys. We recommend a detour to the "Grainskopf" - an observation tower on the plateau of the village "Wehlen". From there you have a nice view at the Moselle valley and at the new brige B50. Hikers can stop for refreshments in both monasteries (Machern and Siebenborn).
