If you want to climb the slope from the Moselle up to the Maifeld in a particularly scenic way and as much as possible, the Shrink Valley is recommended! For cyclists, this also represents the connection between the Moselle cycle path in Hatzenport and the Maifeld cycle path in Münstermaifeld. The 4.5 kilometer long road follows the Schrumpfbach, which flows from Münstermaifeld-Metternich through a forest and meadow-rich valley down to the Moselle. Fifteen mills are on the edge of the path - some in a deep sleep, others are successful examples of how ancient walls can be beautifully renovated, for example to accommodate comfortable holiday apartments. Llamas have found a home in the wild nature of the shrink valley as well as eagle owls and salamanders. From the shrink valley you can also reach the small artist village Mörz with its beautifully renovated courtyards and the small pottery of the brück-posteuka family.

Eltz Castle - the fairytale castle in the Eifel forest

High towers, picturesque oriels, protective walls and a deep castle moat amaze visitors when the well-preserved medieval castle appears out of nowhere on one of the hiking trails - e.g. the award-winning dream trail "Eltzer Burgpanorama". The interior holds some well-preserved treasures: the imposing knights' hall, the armoury and treasure chamber or the bedrooms, living rooms and writing rooms. All this can be experienced on a guided tour between April and November.
