Palzem - Nittel (16,5 km - hiking time approx. 4,5 h)

Variations at the Obermosel (Upper Moselle)

The second leg of the Moselsteig Trail surprises with its particularly diverse route. You start in Palzem, the southernmost Moselle village in Rhineland-Palatinate, located directly at the Luxembourg border. The impressive cathedral "Helfanter Dom" with its double towers is worth a visit. The tour continues over short, steep inclines through forests and meadows. There are lots of opportunities to stop at impressive viewing points and to takea rest - while admiring the Moselle. Finally, the hike takes you through the vineyards along an old cross path down to the wine village Nittel.
