Family on cycle paths in the Moselle vineyards

The Moselle region is known far beyond its borders for its excellent wine. But there is also a lot on offer for families with children. On this cycling tour, breathtaking natural landscapes and a tailor-made programme with numerous included services await you, which we have put together especially for families with children. The enjoyable cycling tours combined with activities for your little ones make this tour an unforgettable family experience. And late in the evening there is still some time for the parents to taste the fruity Moselle wines.

Itinerary at a glance

Along the Moselle, you'll cycle through wine-growing areas and winemaker villages, but you'll also reach leisure pools, a summer toboggan run, and take boat trips. To top it off, you'll conclude by riding the Cochem Chairlift to the Pinner Cross.

Arrival at Trier 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.

You start your cycle tour along the beautiful Moselle, which leads you via Pfalzel and Schweich to Mehring. A small leisure complex awaits you in Riol. The bathing lakes provide refreshment and a ride on the summer toboggan run is an exciting family adventure. In Mehring, you can still visit the remains and reconstructions of the Roman Villa Rustica at your leisure.

In Trittenheim, an educational wine trail provides information about local grape varieties. Neumagen-Dhron is considered the oldest wine village in Germany and in Piesport you can visit a Roman wine press from the 3rd century.

Before Today you cycle to Bernkastel-Kues, where the numerous small alleys and the colourful half-timbered houses are impressive. For the parents, we recommend a sample of the famous "Bernkastler Doctor".

Numerous vineyards accompany you on your bike tour today. Through the wine-growing area “Kröver Nacktarsch” you reach your day’s destination with Traben-Trarbach. On the way, many leisure pools invite you to relax. Traben-Trarbach offers some architectural masterpieces of Art Nouveau and Belle Epoque. We have included a short round of miniature golf for your family.

In Enkirch, a jewel of Moselle’s half-timbered architecture, you should take a break. Through the wine-growing region “Zeller Schwarze Katz” you cycle to Bullay. Immersed in forests and vineyards, this place has lost none of the charm and authentic romance of an old wine village.

You will arrive early in Beilstein, widely known as the Rothenburg on the Moselle. From there you will take the Moselle boat to Cochem. In Cochem, you should allow enough time to visit the charming centre as well as the Reichsburg, which dates back to the 11th century. Take the Cochem chairlift to the Pinnerkreuz viewpoint. Enjoy the view of the town and the Moselle!

Today it is time to say goodbye to the vineyards, castles and ruins. You have all the options for an individual departure. Or would you prefer to spend another day on the Moselle River for more adventures?
