Since 2008 the yellow Jacob's Scallop on a blue background can be found on the Mosel. This is the shell which accompanies hikers and pilgrims on the Mosel Camino as part of the Santiago pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. Varied and full of points of interest, the approximately 160 km long Camino (Spanish = route) leads to the last resting place of the Apostle Matthew, the only Apostle's grave north of the Alps. Although the route is not excessively demanding, fitness and sure-footedness are essential where steep paths lead through the vineyards. You can join the Mosel Camino at any point. It is divided into 8 (one-day) legs, following paths with medieval castles and ruins, and also monastery churches, chapels and romantic wine-growing villages. The Pilgrimage stamp can be obtained at the tourist information centre in Traben-Trarbach.
