The surrounding area of Trier offers many varied routes for hiking friends. Located between the Hunsrück and Eifel mountain ranges, the Moselle Valley offers a variety of landscapes which yet has to be found elsewhere. Simple hikes or demanding footpaths through forests and vineyards, there’s something for every hiker. Trier is one stage of the Moselsteig which is a “Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland" (Quality Route Walkable Germany), and has been rewarded as “Leading Quality Trail – Best of Europe”. But also the Eifelsteig, which ends in Trier, is one of the 16 “Top Trails of Germany“. Thus, Trier is the only German city which combines two premium hiking trails and one quality hiking trail – a paradise for beginners and well-advanced hikers.
