On the tracks of the Romans
There are many ways to experience one or even several days like the Romans – after all, the Mediterranean epicureans settled in the Moselle region. If you like to combine intense nature-based experiences with a feeling of Celtic & Roman spirituality, you can begin your “Roman Day” in the Stiftsmuseum in Treis-Karden. After an exciting journey through 2,000 years of religion and Moselle culture, you initially proceed through small roads and then through the forest by foot to the shrine in Martberg bei Pommern: up here, there are not only meditative views over the landscape, but also unique insights into the beliefs of Treverers and Romans. The excursion continues over the hills past Cochem-Sehl then leads to Roman tombs at the edge of the forest in Nehren: they fascinate with the best-preserved tomb paintings north of the Alps. The deceased had a box seat over the Canyon of the Moselle. A few kilometres in the car further, you can hike to the Gallo-Roman mountain sanctuary on the Calmont on the Moselsteig from Eller or from Bremm via the L 106 towards Beuren. The remnants of the temple were only discovered in 2005. At weekends, there is something good for the body at the end of the “Roman Day” in the winery at the summit of the Calmont, or otherwise in the comfortable restaurants of Ediger-Eller.
