Trier is regarded as the oldest city of Germany. Numerous Roman monuments are omnipresent. Your rental bikes are already stored in the hotel.
Before starting the bike tour you should schedule some time to visit the well-known amphitheater as well as the Porta Nigra. Here you can experience and comprehend 2000 years of history. You start your trip and cycle alongside the wonderful Moselle River. An educational trail along your route reports on domestic grape variety. Taste a glass of wine in Trittenheim - that would be a nice finish of your first cycling day.
Soon you reach Piesport, where you can view the Roman cellars from the 3rd century. Make a further stop in Neumagen-Dhron, Germany´s oldest wine village, or in Bernkastel-Kues with its famous wine „Bernkastler Doctor“. Only a short cycling distance separates you from Zeltingen.
Today you cycle through the winegrowing region „Kröver Nacktarsch“ until you reach Traben-Trarbach. Many vineyards accompany you on both sides of the river. Traben-Trarbach offers many architectural masterpieces of art nouveau and Belle Epoque. Your route takes you through the wine region „Zeller Schwarze Katz“ and finally ends in Zell.
Early you arrive in Beilstein, widely known as „Rothenburg on the Moselle river“. Cochem is worth seeing, for example the charming center as well as the Reichsburg castle from the 11th century. After a short cycling distance you reach Treis-Karden where you also have the possibility for wine tasting.
After about 5 kilometers 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 Koblenz. The center is situated at the confluence of the Moselle River and the Rhine river and is extremely well-suited for a shopping tour.
After breakfast you start with a boat ride along the river Rhine as far as St. Goar. You should take time and visit the mystic “Loreley”. Passing Boppard and Lahnstein the Rhine bike path escorts you back to Koblenz where you will have another night.
In Koblenz there is much to discover. If you are interested in we would be pleased to book some extra nights for you. Our transfer from Koblenz to Trier is very comfortable (daily possible, departure: directly from the hotel, reservation required at time of booking).
The Moselle bike path mostly runs on paved roads and bike trails and is continuously and well signposted. There are only less short sections with more traffic. Altogether a very easy bike tour which is ideally suitable for families with children and doesn´t require more than basic fitness.
