Bleidenberger Ausblicke

Hike along the Mosel-Traumpfad Bleidenberger Ausblicke (Bleidenberg Views)

The translated name says it all: a dream path! Splendid views of the Mosel valley, mighty cliffs with a deep canyon, on the tracks of an old vineyard path to the medieval Thurant Castle and to the Bleidenberg pilgrimage church.


The tour begins at the church in Oberfell. After the ascent up a slope covered with grape vines, there are great views of the Mosel. On continuing the climb there are more wonderful panoramic views to the Vordereifel. Through green forests and flowering meadows the hiker reaches the refuge hut at Dickenberg that extends an invitation to rest and at the same time offers the best distant view. After several kilometres across soft meadow paths the trail crosses the K71 and reaches the unspoilt valley of the Alken brook. The history of the region becomes alive in deep canyons and old quarries.

Along the murmuring Alken brook, past the imposing Helmut oak tree, and through marvellous mixed woodland, the hiker reaches an easy ascent that is rewarded by the impressive views. Having reached the top, Thurant Castle comes into view and invites the hiker to an excursion into the Middle Ages. A narrow path leads over a cliff further on to the historic Church of St. Michael and the charming wine town Alken. Stepping through the time-honoured City Gate the hiker reaches the “Sieben Fußfälle Klettersteig” (seven prostrations’ climb) that leads him through the Mosel slopes, covered in grape vines. There is a splendid view from the Bleidenberg. It is also rewarding to pay a visit to the Bleidenberg pilgrimage church nearby. The final descent along the panorama path reveals once more fantastic views of the Mosel valley and Thurant Castle, before the hike finishes in Oberfell.
