Arrival in Trier/Ruwetal
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 (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.
