Grapes and vines, in the background the Rhine Valley with a ship on the Rhine

The Moselle region is renowned worldwide for its exceptional wines, particularly Riesling. At Eurobike, we've designed this six-day tour to celebrate the winegrowers, whose guesthouses you'll stay in and whose hospitality you'll enjoy. Cycling through picturesque wine landscapes along the river's course, you'll encounter charming wine villages like Neumagen-Dhron and Pommern time and again. Three wine tastings await you on the tour, along with the opportunity to indulge in delicious culinary specialties.

Plan a stop in Trier on your journey and spend the first night in the picturesque Ruwer Valley. Shortly after your departure, you'll reach Mehring, where you can stroll through the idyllic "Moselgassen," and Neumagen-Dhron, the oldest wine village in Germany. Don't miss a visit to the wine museum in Bernkastel-Kues before the route leads you through wine-growing areas near Traben-Trarbach.

On your way to Pommern, you'll catch sight of the famous bridge at Bullay and pass through Beilstein and Cochem. Once again, a host of attractions awaits you on the final stage, including the medieval Eltz Castle and the historic wine village of Kobern-Gondorf. After an eventful day, you'll finally arrive in Koblenz, whose charming city center is sure to captivate you.

  • Historical insights and charming views near Mehring: The "Moselgassen" are narrow, picturesque alleyways typical of the villages along the river. Lined with historic timber-framed houses, they offer a charming glimpse into local life and the culture of the region. Additionally, the Villa Rustica is an archaeological site featuring the remains of a Roman estate settlement dating from the 2nd to 4th centuries AD.
  • Scenic beauty and architectural diversity near Bullay: The bridge is distinguished by its impressive size and its striking position overlooking the picturesque Moselle. Serving as a crucial link between the towns of Bullay and Alf, it also provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding wine-growing region and the steep slopes of the Moselle. Its construction and architectural design render it a remarkable landmark along the Moselle route.
  • Sightseeing in Koblenz - there's a lot you should have seen. These attractions include the Deutsches Eck, a monument to Kaiser Wilhelm I, the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress boasting an impressive view over the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle, as well as the historic old town featuring the Electoral Palace and the Schängelbrunnen fountain. Additionally, the cable car ride across the Rhine comes highly recommended.

During the four cycling stages along the Moselle, you'll cover just under 200 kilometers. Despite passing through vineyards, the route remains mostly flat making it an ideal cycle tour for leisure cyclists that you can tackle without too much effort. Each night, you'll stay with local winegrowers, where you'll learn about the rich history of winemaking in the region. A hearty breakfast awaits you each morning, ensuring you start your day full of energy for your daily activities.

The Moselle Cycle Route leads through France and Germany along the Moselle, from vineyard to vineyard and from loop to loop. The flat terrain and stunning landscape make it one of Eurobike's most popular cycling routes.

Itinerary at a glance

Arrive early in the idyllic Ruwertal at the gates to Trier. You will stay in the middle of the vineyards in a beautiful hotel with its own vineyards.

Accompanied by vines, you roll through the Ruwer valley along the Moselle, where the old ferry tower of Schweich is located. Marvel at the small wine-growing village Mehring with the famous Villa Rustica, a ruin, that was in Roman times a magnificent country house. Stroll through Mehring's lovingly crafted so-called Moselle streets and don't be afraid to open the doors of vine-ranked wineries. Take the afternoon. In the afternoon take a detour to the left side of the Moselle to Trittenheim, because here lures a walk on the wine educational trail, which informs about the work year of the wine-maker, native grape varieties and grape breeding, before you reach Neumagen -Dhron, the oldest wine village in Germany or at the nice little wine village Piesport with its nice cafes, wineries and wine taverns.

Discover Bernkastel-Kues, stroll through the beautiful market square, past the proud half-timbered houses and educate yourself in the famous wine museum. Get information about wine cultivation on steep slopes, on the different varieties of all the work in the vineyard and in the cellar, wine storage, and of course the wine culture. After this worthwhile break you continue to cycle right on the banks of the Moselle to Zeltingen along the world-renowned vineyards Zeltinger Himmelreich, Schlossberg, Sonnenuhr and Deutschherrenberg. You will then cycle through the vineyards Kröver Nacktarsch to your winery in Burg or Reil close to Traben-Trarbach.

In the morning, you roll through the vineyards to Zeller Schwarze Katz. Marvel at the in Germany still unique bridge that connects Bullay with Alf. It crosses as steel structure the Mosel at double-level, above is the rail and down is the road. Discover the romantic village of Beilstein with its nickname "Rothenburg an der Mosel", stroll through the picturesque center of Cochem, visit the old imperial castle from the 11th  Century or visit the 'Rieslingstub'n'. Take place between historic winery equipment or sit outside when the weather allows in vineyards courtyard with its shady roof of vine leaves. The delicately fruity Riesling from the famous Schiefer-Steillagen around Cochem transformed here into a fruity, mineral wine and offers delicious easy-drinking pleasure. With these impressions, you can quickly reach the charming wine village of Pomerania and your vineyard where you can stay the night.

Today an detour lures you (4 kilometers) to the medieval Burg Eltz, one of the most beautiful and best preserved castles in Germany. Wonderfully romantic and nestled in unspoiled nature, it looks like a true fairy-tale castle, inviting and majestic at the same time. Take part in an informative tour of the castle. Then you will cycle back to the Moselle bike path and roll down to the historic wine town Kobern Gondorf. Visit here a terraced vineyard, because they have almost exclusively steep slopes. These are usually very rocky and therefore for the most part only buildable on more or less small terraces. On these steep slopes mainly grow Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes. Get first hand information from the winery on its work and its products. Afterwards, enjoy the last few kilometers cycling along the river. Take a short trip through the wine village Winningen, which is one of the most beautiful villages in Germany and look forward to a great end to the day in the city of Koblenz on the German Corner.

Today your beautiful bike tour ends in the heart of Coblenz.
