Itinerary

Trier is regarded as the oldest city of Germany. Numerous Roman monuments are omnipresent. Your rental bikes are already stored in the hotel.

Before you start 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 “Bernkasteler 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 today´s destination Koblenz. The center is situated at the confluence of the Moselle River and the Rhine River and is extremely well-suited for a stroll.

From now the river Rhine will escort you. In Lahnstein the river Lahn flows into the river Rhine. On bike you will pass numerous charming wine villages such as Boppard. In St. Goar you should schedule some time to visit the so-called Loreley. This is a slate rock with a mermaid on top of the rock. A legend from the 19th century says that the mermaid always combed her golden hair on this rock and attracted the sailors with her singing. The sailors were distracted by her and didn’t pay attention to the dangerous flow and crushed their boat into the reef.

Also today you will cycle through the outstanding landscape of the UNESCO world heritage “Upper Middle-Rhine-valley”. On your way you will see many castles perched high above the Rhine. Vineyards and romantic small villages invite for a rest to taste the fruity local wines. A small detour brings you to Eberbach monastery which is definitely worth a visit. You should also schedule some time for a stroll through the “Drosselgasse” in Rüdesheim. With Mainz you finally have reached the end of your bike journey. The old part of the city has a lot of half-timbered houses. While having a good cup of coffee or tea on the medieval market place you can review all the impressions of this wonderful bike trip.

In Mainz there is much to discover. If you are interested in, we would be pleased to book some extra nights for you. Our transfer from Mainz to Trier is very comfortable (possible daily with departure 8 am directly from the hotel, reservation required at time of booking).

Tour character

The Moselle and Rhine bike paths mostly run on paved roads and bike trails and are continuously and well signposted. There are only a few 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.
