Details about bike and boat holidays on the Moselle

The cycle path on the Moselle is considered to be one of the most beautiful in all of Germany: be it because of the enchanting half-timbered houses in the villages, the magnificent nature on the water or the outstanding landscape of the cycle routes. During the eight-day bike and boat trip, you can enjoy nature, culture and of course, culinary delights. There’s a reason that the Moselle is award-winning and popular far beyond the country’s borders.

  • River landscape of the Moselle & Saar: It is very special to follow the rivers, not just from the banks, but also from a ship. The landscape along the Moselle and Saar is lush, exuberant green, and the Saar loops provides popular photo opportunities.
  • Culture in the cities: Trier is considered the oldest city in Germany, and the Porta Nigra still testifies to the ancient Roman era. The narrow streets and baroque buildings in Saarburg are reminiscent of Italian Venice.

In Koblenz you move into cabin in the MS Olmypia, the journey starts in the afternoon. The leisurely cycle tours over the next few days are between 25 and 65 kilometres long, but extremely easy to ride and a real treat even for inexperienced cyclists. The ship accompanies you on the Moselle and the Saar, so that you arrive at your favourite place at the end of the route, the sundeck.
