Metz - Coblenz
Moselle bike path
Arrival to Metz
Individual arrival into the capitol of Lorraine located in northeast of France. Almost endless numbers of different sights wait to be explored. Your bikes will available in the arrival hotel at the next morning.
Your first stage leads over Thionville, located in the border triangle of Germany, France, and Luxembourg. Close to Perl you will pass Schengen. This small village became well-known due to the Schengen agreement. Finally, in Perl you have the chance to visit the Roman villa.
From Perl the river Moselle marks the border between Germany and Luxembourg. On both sides of the river vineyards rise up. They will escort you almost as far as Koblenz and offer wonderful panoramic views. You will reach your today´s destination over Konz, where the river Saar flows into the river Moselle. Trier is the oldest city of Germany and you can explore 2000 years of history there.
Before you continue along the Moselle you should schedule some time to visit the well-known amphitheater as well as the Porta Nigra. An educational trail along your route reports on domestic grape variety. Close to Piesport you will pass Neumagen-Dhron which is Germany´s oldest wine village. Taste a glass of wine in Piesport - for sure this could be a nice finish of this beautiful cycle day!
Soon you will reach Bernkastel-Kues where many alleys and colorful half-timbered houses will impress. In any case you should taste the well-known “Bernkastler Doctor” (local produced wine). On your further way you will pass the wine growing district named “Kröver Nacktarsch”. A boat ride might offer beautiful views on the surrounding vineyards (not included). You have reached your today´s destination with Traben-Trarbach. The city offers many architectural masterpieces of art nouveau and Belle Epoch.
Also today the vineyards will escort your way. Enkirch is a trinket of half-timbered houses and ideally suitable for a brake. Always following the river Moselle you will pass another famous wine growing district which is called “Zeller Schwarze Katz”. Cycling over Beilstein, widely known as „Rothenburg on the Moselle River”, you will soon roll into Cochem. The charming center and the castle from the 11th century are just some highlights. Take enough time for a visit.
After a short distance you should make a side trip to the medieval castle „Burg Eltz“, which counts among the most beautiful and best preserved castles of Germany. Located in the heart of nature it offers magnificent views. Back to the Moselle bike path you pass numerous charming wine villages, before you reach your final destination Coblenz. The center is situated at the confluence of the Moselle River and the Rhine River and is extremely well-suited for a stroll.
In Coblenz there is much to discover. If you are interested in we would be pleased to book some extra nights for you. Our transfer from Coblenz to Metz is very comfortable (daily, departure: directly from the hotel, reservation required at time of booking).
On the main part the Moselle bike path runs on paved roads and own cycle paths. Only minor sections you need to consider traffic, mostly when entering or leaving cities. The Moselle bike path is excellently and continuously signposted. Altogether a very easy bike tour which doesn´t require more than basic fitness.
