Mosel-Cycle Path for families

A little journey through time.

The Mosel Cycle Path for families is as multifarious as it is exciting: you are always accompanied by fertile vineyards, elegant half-timber houses and mighty castles. Just like a journey through time you follow the trails of the Romans since you come across historic buidings en route time and time again. However you will not be short of fun along this (cycle) route either! You have the option of visiting leisure and outdoor pools, numerous playgrounds and exciting museums on a daily basis. In the cute wine-growing villages and towns en route you frequently take a break and visit one of the wine taverns ‚Straußwirtschaften’ with their regional specialities. Due to the many adventures along the river and the consistently easy cycle routes on flat terrain, the Mosel Cycle Path is considered the ideal holiday experience for active families!

Itinerary

Arrival at Treves and check-in at your accommodation. Travel documentation and rental bikes (if booked) are ready for you in the hotel. Treves is a town teeming with historic, Roman buildings and architecture. Whether it is the town’s landmark, Porta Nigra’ or the amphitheatre – it is definitely always worth a visit. Alternatively you can check out the toy museum and take part in the cool museum puzzlehunt.

Finally it is time for your cycling tour! You proceed on the left riverbank along easy cycle paths along the river Mosel, past Pfalzel onwards to Schweich. Here we recommend a detour to the adventure pool with its 52 metre long giant slide. Then you continue and cross over to the right side of the river and cycle along the ‚Roman Wine Route’ until the leisure lake ‚Triolago’, where you can enjoy the toboggan run, football-golf, a water ski cable car and many more. From there you proceed to Mehring, your first Day Finish.

approx. 25 km

Still pay a visit to the ruins of the Roman ‚Villa Rustica’. After that continue on the cycle path along the river Mosel via Detzem and Leiwen with their cool childrens’ playgrounds. You cycle past vineyards over to Neumagen-Dhron, the oldest wine-growing community in Germany. Here you may get lucky and spot the true to original Roman wine vessel gliding along on the river Mosel or maybe you might even decide to venture onboard and take part in a culture-trip? Once you arrive in Piesport you can visit the Roman wine pressing facility dating back to the 3rd century.

approx. 25 km

Today you are yet again accompanied by the colourful vineyards en route. You cycle comfortably along the cycle path past Mühlheim and the countless fabulous half-timber houses on flat terrain. In Lieser you have the option of following a forest adventure trail and discover exciting adventure games along it. Then onwards to Bernhastel-Kues. How about a round of mini golf or do you prefer to relax on the grassy areas of the Moselbad-outdoor pool? Your final stop today is Zeltingen, your Day Finish.

approx. 25 km

After breakfast in Zeltingen we recommend, you quickly enjoy the streetscape of a genuine wine-growing village, then you are on your way again on this cheerful cycling tour. On both sides of the river Mosel you are accompanied again by marvellous vineyards. On very hot days we recommend a detour to the outdoor swimming pool Kröv. You cycle past Traben-Trabach, where you can fittingly pay a visit to the Bicycle Museum or the Grevenburg castle ruins. Past Marienburg to Zell, today’s Day Finish, towering on the mountain ridge ‚Zeller Hamm’. 

approx. 35 km

Situated directly along the cycle path just before Zell is the giant water park ‚Zeller Land’. Have some fun there if you fancy before you proceed. Then in the next village, in Alf, yet another large outdoor pool with play area and lawn for sunbathing awaits. Alternatively you can visit the local museum. You continue to Bremm with its winding little alleyways. The courageous ones amongst you can give the ‚Calmont-Via Ferrata’ a try, the steepest vineyard in Europe. After that you continue directly along the river Mosel all the way to Cochem. Take your time for a stroll through this charming town centre.

 

approx. 35 km

The cycling stage to Coblenz can easily be shortened by train. Whether it is a visit to one of the impressive castles, such as the medieval Eltz castle, or having fun splashing in one of the invigorating outdoor-pools: you mainly determine the distance and course of the route. At the end of your tour you also reach the end of the Mosel cycling path, the ‚German Corner’. The final night is spent in the charming town of Coblenz where you get the chance to recall your fantastic cycling holiday.

approx. 15 - 50 km

Tour character
