A beautiful and new circular hike near the Moselle village of Wintrich. The highlight is the view from the "Kanzel" into the Frohnbachtal.

A circular hiking trail through the quiet forests of the Moselhunsrück.Insight into the hiking tour:From the hiking car park on the district road K 85 the trail leads mainly through chestnut and beech forests. On the way, from the "Kanzel" (signposted as a detour of about 150 metres) there is a wonderful view of the Frohnbach Valley near Burgen and Hirzlei. A further detour worth seeing is in the Wintrich district of Kasholz - the Kasholz farm. Here everything revolves around elderberries. Elderberry juice, nectar, elderberry apple juice and syrup specialities, liqueurs and brandies as well as various jams and jellies, all from our own cultivation, can be bought in the farm shop. All juices are naturally cloudy and are produced and bottled in a traditional and vitamin-conserving way (see tip author).The hiking trail is signposted in both directions. It is recommended to walk it counterclockwise.There are no refreshment stops along the way, so it is recommended to take backpack provisions with you.
