Morbach naar Dasburg
Piesport uitzicht
Be surprised by one of the most versatile states of Germany: Rhineland-Palatinate.
The route starts immediately with small winding roads towards Piesport.
This place is right on the Moselle, and is a wine village with about 1900 inhabitants on the right bank between Trier and Bernkastel. It is surrounded by steep mountains, and this colossal rock massif is also called the Mosel - Loreley.
As soon as we cross the Mosel we begin the characteristic hairpin bends above Piesport. Three quarters of the climb up. We stop for coffee and a delicious view over the Mosel.
When we leave again we have a little more than an hour to send over wonderful roads, before we arrive in Echternach where we find a lunch location.
The center of Echternach is largely car-free. The city is popular with tourists and that is evident from the many restaurants, cafes, cafes and hotels in the historic center.
After lunch it is just a 10-minute drive to the next stop at Mullerthal. This area is often called Luxembourg's Little Switzerland. This is due to the undulating landscape that reminds one of Switzerland. Mullerthal is above all an exceptional biotope characterized by awe-inspiring rock formations. The composition of rocks and their erosion have created the landscape that is so typical of Luxembourg's Little Switzerland.
After having seen this fantastic rock party, it is about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive to Dasburg, the terminus of this route.

I have given this route 4 stars. This is because I have not driven this route in this configuration yet. However many pieces of this route have already been driven from previous routes.

About this region
The Hunsrück (German pronunciation: [ˈhʊnsʁʏk]) is a low mountain range in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is bounded by the river valleys of the Moselle (north), the Nahe (south), and the Rhine (east). The Hunsrück is continued by the Taunus mountains on the eastern side of the Rhine. In the north behind the Moselle it is continued by the Eifel. To the south of the Nahe is the Palatinate region. Many of the hills are no higher than 400 metres (1,300 ft) above sea level. There are several chains of much higher peaks within the Hunsrück, all bearing names of their own: the (Black Forest) Hochwald, the Idar Forest, the Soonwald, and the Bingen Forest. The highest mountain is the Erbeskopf (816 m; 2,677 ft). Notable towns located within the Hunsrück include Simmern, Kirchberg, and Idar-Oberstein, Kastellaun, and Morbach. Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is also located within the region. The climate in the Hunsrück is characterised by rainy weather, and mist rising in the morning. Slate is still mined in the mountains. Since 2010, the region has become one of Germany's major onshore wind power regions, with major wind farms located near Ellern and Kirchberg. Nature-based tourism has increased in recent years and in 2015, a new national park was inaugurated. Culturally, the region is best known for its Hunsrückisch dialect and through depictions in the Heimat film series. The region experienced significant emigration in the mid-19th century, particularly to Brazil.
