The 24-stages Moselsteig was officially declared Germany's most beautiful hiking trail in 2016. The first stage leads from Perl to Palzem and offers fantastic panoramic views down into the beautiful Moselle Valley.
Not only the wonderful views, but also the diverse flora and fauna are among the highlights of this long-distance hiking tour. One of the first stations is the German-French nature reserve on Hammelsberg, with sun-drenched slopes, where countless colourful orchids bloom from May to June and thousands of butterflies perform an awe-inspiring natural spectacle. Following a barefoot trail stage, the Moselsteig leads through shady forests into the small village of Wochern, where lovingly restored houses and a babbling brook shape the landscape. Passing a collapsing doline, one reaches Sinz and later Palzem.
