Eltzer Burgpanorama

Hike along the Mosel-Traumpfad Eltzer Burgpanorama (Eltz Castle Panorama Trail)

Marvellous views of the plains of the Mosel plateau and tranquil meadowlands along the bubbling Elzbach combine with a unique cultural monument: the castle per se – Eltz Castl


Directly after starting from the village’s community centre in Wierschem the hiker can already enjoy the vast open expanse of the Mosel plateau. The trail climbs continuously along natural footpaths, and there is the final reward of a magnificent view of the deep-cut Elzbach valley and the Pyrmont Castle. Soon further on through Count Eltz’s Forest the Elzbach is reached, meandering in countless bends. Later the path joins the Mosel Heights Trail which initially takes the hiker through valley meadowlands and finally on to a hill.

Crossing rough rocks there is a breathtaking view of the fairytale-like Eltz Castle, awaiting to be conquered over a stone bridge. After a trip back to the Middle Ages, the hiker plunges into splendid nature and marvels at the diverse nature of the river valley of the Elzbach and graceful crippled oak forests, bevore the Ringelstein Mill invites him to make a break. Refreshed, there is a magnificent but steep climb on which the hiker is repeatedly rewarded with beautiful views and which leads back on to the Mosel plateau.. Along the edge of the slope, past the Tholeisterhof, the trail continues into the tranquil valley of the Kern brook, which is followed by alternating woodland groves and open fields. Arriving again in Wierschem it is worth having a last look at the little St. Antony’s Chapel on the edge of the village.
