CALMONT VIA FERRAL BREMM
Adventure in the steepest vineyard in Europe. A very demanding tour with artificial safety devices, step irons and holding irons on rocks, wire rope safety devices, 6 climbing ladders. Walking shoes are necessary. Enjoy the wonderful panorama between the towns of Bremm and Ediger-Eller with a view of the Stuben monastery ruins on the narrowest and most beautiful bend in the Moselle. The path leads over ladders past striking rock spurs. Steel ropes give you support when crossing a rock ridge. Behind the railway bridge in Eller, the trail climbs gently to the Galgenlay. From there northwest towards Bremm. The last part of the climb leads you through vineyards, constantly downhill to Bremm. From Bremm it goes back along the Moselle on the bike path.
A head for heights and surefootedness are recommended.
CLIMBING PATH ERDENER TREPCHEN | Erden
This climbing path leads you through the famous Erdener Treppchen and the parcel with the melodious name of the Prelate. Two of the best vineyards on the Middle Moselle, between Ürzig and Kinheim. A bit hidden, just to the left of the restored Roman wine press on the banks of the Moselle, is the entrance to the famous slope. The circular hiking trail is, depending on the tour chosen, just between 2.9 kilometers and 4.3 kilometers long. But they have it all, because the path through the wine paradise is steep. A good 140 meters of altitude can be overcome in constant ups and downs. And it almost always goes through the sun. Metal ladders bridge vineyard walls and small rocks. Sometimes the path leads through rows of vines, then again close to the rock.
COLLIES STEEP PATH | ZELL
The steep Collis path was created in 2008: Over a length of 1.2 km and 160 meters of altitude with an alpine character, the Alpenverein Koblenz and the Heimat- und Verkehrsverein Zell (Mosel) e.V. secured the rocky passages with stirrups, ladders and wire ropes. If you don't want to climb, you can bypass the via ferrata on the steep path along old vineyard walls. When you reach your destination, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Moselle valley. A refreshment stop for the Heimat- und Verkehrsverein Zell (Mosel) e.V. awaits you on the Collis viewing plateau (for opening times, see overleaf). The Collis steep path can be optimally combined with the Collis circular hiking trail.
VIA FERRATA "THÖRNICHER RITSCH" | THÖRNICH
In the steep slopes of the Moselle, the winemakers cavort at work in the vineyard through so-called "Wangertspedcher" (vineyard trails). It is hard to understand that in the past the grapes were also transported into the valley by donkeys on the "Wangerstpedchen". In 2004 the local community of Thörnich had the idea of paving part of these mostly provisional paths and opening them up to tourists with a signposted system. Since 2006, it has been possible to climb the Thörnicher Ritsch via ferrata from the parking lot on the main road through the vineyard to a beautiful vantage point. The path is around 1.4 kilometers long.
