Via ferratas or klettersteig are becoming increasingly popular. You will find several climbing routes along the Moselle, some of which are relatively close to our hotel.
The Calmont is one of the highest vineyards of the Moselle and you need to be in good shape for the steep climb. The Calmont in Bremm is certainly the steepest vineyard in Europe.
To climb Collies Steep Path in Zell am Mosel, you have to climb 180 meters up to the Collies Tower. There are short, but quite challenging, steep sections. At the finish, the climbing hiker is rewarded with a beautiful Moselle panorama.
In 2006, some vineyard trails for hikers were connected to the Thörnicher Ritsch vineyard. The klettersteig Thörnicher Ritsch is the steepest of these. The start is at the parking lot on the B 53 between Klüsserath and Ensch. On arrival you will immediately be faced with the steep via ferrata. This is only 500 m long, and leads to a viewing platform with benches and a table. Here you have a picturesque view of the vineyards on the left and right of the Moselle.
Straight through the vineyards of Erdener Treppchen and Prälat, this via ferrata has three different routes. The difficulty levels or lengths of the routes (2.9 to 4.3 km) are marked with green, yellow and red. After completing the route a breathtaking view of the Moselle Valley will be the ultimate reward for your efforts.
The government imposed a ban on overnight stays for tourist purposes until 19 April 2020.
All bookings that fall within this period can at any time be cancelled or postponed free of charge.
Same regulations apply to our foreign guests that might not be able to visit us due to border closures during this period.
Even if the authorities extend the official closure, these regulations will continue to apply.
We would be pleased if you would take the following quotation to heart:
“Postponed is not cancelled”, so you will not only secure our jobs but also those of our partners and the local region.
For bookings received via our homepage until 30 May 2020, we grant you a 10% discount when placing a 50% deposit.
We ask for your understanding and hope to see you again very soon.
