Around the village of Eltz

The famous Eltz 's castle with its peaked roofs, the windows and towers could be the highlight of this tour, if it were not for the wild nature of Eltzbachtals with thick forests and gurgling streams that equally impress us. Or you like even more the fertile hills of Maifeld?

Since the beginning of our journey from the social center of the village of Wierschem the plateau of the Moselle stretches before us. Steadily uphill, on roads surrounded by nature, the itinerary offers magnificent views of the Elzbachtal valley and the Castle Pyrmont.

Through the pristine forest Elzbacher you reach the river Elzbach. We follow it down a hill.

Now the tour leads you directly to the magical village of Eltz that, crossed a stone bridge, invites you on a journey in the Middle Ages. Continuing through the magnificent nature of the valley of the river and through beautiful forests of oak curved, you reach the mill Ringelsteiner, which invites you to relax.

There now a steep but rewarding climb follows, and we are often rewarded by the view. You return to the plateau of the Moselle. Finally, the tour ends in the quiet valley of the river Kerner alternating small woods and open fields.

You return to the outskirts of Wierschem where it's worth taking one last look at Antoniuskapelle (Church).
