Koberner Burgpfad

Hike along the Mosel-Traumpfad Koberner Burgpfad (Kobern Castle Trail)

Fabulous passages through unspoilt forests, on wooden footbridges over bubbling brooks, the Oberburg and Niederburg Castles majestically overlook picturesque vineyards. Cultural highlights are the late Roman St. Matthew’s Chapel and a celtic place of worship.

Description of the Koberner Burgpfad

Starting point is the vicarage in Kobern, from where a narrow serpentine path goes uphill, giving the first lovely views over the Mosel valley. Arriving on a plateau, the hiker is in contact with the fascinating world of wine-making. Keeping in close touch with nature, the path leads into the valley to the Gerlach Mill. Here the trail starts into the dreamlike Keverbach valley with idyllic forests and lively rippling brooks. Past the buildings at Solligerhof, a varied landscape appears to the hiker: everything is offered, from the fabulous distant view, to open plateaus, flowering hedges and cool high forests.

A diversion leads to the celtic place of worship: the Golo Ring. The path continues through venerable birch and mixed deciduous forests until at the edge of the forest there is a great view of Wolken and its surroundings. The route continues past the Sauerbrunnen and the Quidoborn, two natural mineral springs. After being refreshed by the delicious water, the next climb is easily conquered and is rewarded with a fantastic view of the impressive St. Mathew’s Chapel and the Oberburg Castle. The final descent over the crossroads also offers overwhelming views and a recommendable detour to the ruin of Niederburg Castle, before reaching the destination of Kobern.
