Betwixt Mosel and Rhine, forts, castles and wine, you'll find
the Ehrbachklamm Dream Loop – in a setting to delight the
At 8.5km long, and with a cumulative elevation gain of 590
metres, the Ehrbachklamm Dream Loop offers an extraordinary
number of experiences within a relatively short
distance. There are some impressive lookouts, and plenty of
seats along the way, so you can rest and enjoy the scenery
at your leisure. Water rushing and cascading through the
Ehrbachklamm like nowhere else, the medieval slate quarry
at Ehrbach, the water wheel at the Daubisberger Mill, and
Schöneck Castle all line the trail.
As far back as the early Middle Ages the Ehrbachtal, a
valley alongside the Moselle and a link to Boppard on the
Rhine, was considered to be an attractive and strategically
advantageous location. Ehrenburg Castle and Schöneck
Castle bear witness to this, having been subjugated by the
Archbishop-Elector of Trier, Baldwin of Luxembourg, during
the Eltz Feud of 1331, and also following the construction of
the Rauschenburg counter-castle above the Ehrbachklamm.
The best way to experience the beauty of the Ehrbachklamm,
and the rippling stream with its waterfalls, is to follow
the Dream Loop in an anticlockwise direction upstream.
Sturdy footwear is essential.
Certified by the German Hiking Institute, the Ehrbachklamm
