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.

Highlights of the bike and boat trip at a glance:

  • 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.
  • Your hotel ship the MS Patria: The atmosphere on the MS Patria? Cosy and informal. You have arrived on holiday when you can take a seat on the sundeck and enjoy the view of the surrounding area.

Mit Rad und Schiff durchs Moseltal
Das Moseltal ist eine Radreise wert. Wunderschöne Landschaft, schöne Weinorte und immer schlängelt sich die Mosel durch das Tal . Kombination mit dem Schiff ist toll, man hat Abends immer sein "Hotel" vor Ort ohne Koffer zu packen und wenn es mal regnet bleibt man auf dem Schiff und läßt die Landschaft vorbei ziehen. Die Anlegestellen sind gut gewählt, kein Straßenlärm. Die Kabinen sind sehr klein aber darauf kann man sich einstellen. Eine super Crew und eine tolle Reiseleitung läßt keine Wünsche offen, so fern sie erfüllbar sind. Das Schiff ist ein älteres Model aber sauber und gepflegt. Ein Dankeschön an die gesamte Crew und besonders an unsere Reiseleiterin Dagmar.
