Gaze over acres of vineyards clinging to the terraced hillside, their leaves just beginning to take on a golden edge, the grapes light green. More German summer sun is needed before they are ready to be harvested and turned into the renowned wines of the Moselle valley. You’re walking the Moselsteig, the Moselle Trail, which follows the twists and turns of the river from Perl in the south to Koblenz in the north, where the river joins the Rhine. Along the way there are spectacular views to be enjoyed as you walk through farmlands and cherry orchards, dotted with half-timbered houses bright with window boxes, castles, historic towns and charming traditional riverside villages. Watch the life on the river, as barges and pleasure boats ply the waters. And, of course, the reward for your efforts is waiting for you, in a cool green wine bottle ….
The landscapes of Germany offer many and varied opportunities for walking (and drinking!), On a warm summer’s evening, where better place to be than a traditional rural Bavarian beer garden on the shores of a lake, with a large glass of the local monks’ brew in hand, beads of condensation dripping enticingly down? After all, you’ve earned it, after a day walking in the high mountains, lakes and waterfalls of Bavaria. Raise your glass to a Ramblers Walking Holiday in Germany.
