Moselle Cycle Path

8 Days / 7 Nights
Medium
View of Trier

This variation along the Moselle River starts in the capitol of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Starting your cycle trip in this multicultural metropolis you will cross an impressive landscape with some hilly sections as far as Remich, well known as the pearl on the river Moselle. This small town at the foot of the vineyards is located directly on the shore of the Moselle and still an important wine- and trade center. The picturesque urban quarters as well as the old alleys are evidence for a great historic past. Passing Trier this cycle trip will follow always the river Moselle as far as Coblenz, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine River. Numerous vineyards on both sides of the river and breathtaking natural landscapes will constantly accompany you and promise delightful cycle tours. On this bike trip you follow a more than 2000 year old Roman history, in the true sense of the word. Thereby you cycle through historical cities and charming villages and you get to know the famous fruity wines which you can taste.

Itinerary at a glance

Museums, castles, and narrow alleys shape the capital of Luxembourg. Along the Moselle, you'll taste world-renowned wines and soak in the atmosphere of charming villages. In Trier, you'll visit the Porta Nigra and the amphitheater.

We recommend an early arrival to the European Culture City of 2007. Nowhere else harmonize contemporary buildings such subtle with old ruins and former castles and monasteries. Since many years Luxembourg belongs to an UNESCO world heritage site. Almost endless numbers of theaters and museums will inspire culture interested people. The bikes will be delivered the next morning to your hotel.

After breakfast you will leave the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The small river Alzette will escort you easily out of the city. The landscape and some small villages which you pass today will outweigh some short climbs.  Your destination Remich sprays Mediterranean flair and along the Moselle promenade you can relax while having a glass of wine.

From Perl the river Moselle marks the border between Germany and Luxembourg. On both sides of the river vineyards rise up. They will escort you almost as far as Koblenz and offer wonderful panoramic views. You will reach your today´s destination over Konz, where the river Saar flows into the river Moselle. Trier is the oldest city of Germany and you can explore 2000 years of history there.

Before you continue along the Moselle you should schedule some time to visit the well-known amphitheater as well as the Porta Nigra. An educational trail along your route reports on domestic grape variety. Close to Piesport you will pass Neumagen-Dhron which is Germany´s oldest wine village. Taste a glass of wine in Piesport - for sure this could be a nice finish of this beautiful cycle day!

Soon you will reach Bernkastel-Kues where many alleys and colorful half-timbered houses will impress. In any case you should taste the well-known “Bernkastler Doctor” (local produced wine). On your further way you will pass the wine growing district named “Kröver Nacktarsch”. A boat ride might offer beautiful views on the surrounding vineyards (not included). You have reached your today´s destination with Traben-Trarbach. The city offers many architectural masterpieces of art nouveau and Belle Epoch.

Also today the vineyards will escort your way. Enkirch is a trinket of half-timbered houses and ideally suitable for a brake. Always following the river Moselle you will pass another famous wine growing district which is called “Zeller Schwarze Katz”. Cycling over Beilstein, widely known as „Rothenburg on the Moselle River”, you will soon roll into Cochem. The charming center and the castle from the 11th century are just some highlights. Take enough time for a visit.

After a short distance you should make a side trip to the medieval castle „Burg Eltz“, which counts among the most beautiful and best preserved castles of Germany. Located in the heart of nature it offers magnificent views. Back to the Moselle bike path you pass numerous charming wine villages, before you reach your final destination Coblenz. The center is situated at the confluence of the Moselle River and the Rhine River and is extremely well-suited for a stroll.

In Coblenz there is much to discover. If you are interested in we would be pleased to book some extra nights for you. Our transferform Coblenz to Luxembourg is very comfortable (posible each Thursday and Saturday, departure: directly from the hotel, reservation required at time of booking.
