Three heights want to be climbed in this tour. For this we will be rewarded with a different perspective of the Moselle and Traben-Trarbach.

This circular route leads us over three mountains around Trarbach and offers a slightly different view of the city. The path first leads through the Taubenhaus vineyard. Here a wine arbour invites us to stay and we can enjoy the view of Traben. We always walk slightly upwards and in the forest we meet the hiking trail to Bernkastel. Our path turns left and along the grammar school we reach the Wildbadstraße. We cross this road and at the anchor bridge we walk uphill through the vineyards and gardens towards Bad Wildstein. Now the path climbs through the vineyards and we enjoy the "bikini view" of the Moseltherme. At the next driveway the path climbs again slightly towards the town. Then legs and eyes will be rewarded: a longer section continues evenly and we enjoy great views of the city of Trarbach. Above the cemetery we walk a short distance downhill on the country road L 190 and in the next bend to the right through gardens and meadows on the third hill towards Grevenburg. Here you have the possibility to rest in the Burgschenke. But by no means should we miss the panoramic view of Traben-Trarbach. From the Grevenburg, the path leads in serpentines through the forest down to the Moselle bridge.

The starting point is the bridge gate in the Trarbach district. We follow the traffic-calmed Brückenstraße to the end and then turn right into Moselstraße. Before the subway we turn left into Enkircher Straße and pass the Rosengarten on the right. We cross Grabenstraße into Wolfer Weg and take the first left uphill to the ascent to the Taubenhaus. Continue straight on along the Jakobsweg (Way of St. James) in the direction of Bernkastel-Kues.

At the top, we turn back towards Traben-Trarbach and come out in Traben-Trarbach in the Wildbadstraße.

At the "ANKERBRÜCKE" we cross the road and the Kautenbach. Here we go uphill into the vineyards. Above the minigolf course we turn left.

We go back and then follow the road up to the top (211 m above sea level) and then back to the town on the slope. At the crossroads above the cemetery, follow the road downhill to the L 190, go downhill there, in the left-hand bend turn right into the hiking trail along the Schottbach stream, after about 500 m turn left and follow the sign " zur Grevenburg". From the Grevenburg we can climb the "Himmelspforte" via the Franzosensteig. We then return to the Grevenburg with a nice stop for refreshments. In serpentines we go downhill to the starting point.



Safety Guidelines

Danger of slipping on the stone stairs to the war memorial when wet.


Sturdy shoes are recommended.


You have the best view of the Moselle valley from the "Himmelspforte" above the Grevenburg - this can be climbed via the newly built hiking trail - the Franzosensteig. Great views and pure alpine hiking experience!

Burgschenke: flag up - lord of the castle there, flag down - tavern closed.

As this is a star-shaped route, the three stars can be combined individually.
