travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Trier
The Porta Nigra in Trier in summer

Your vacation begins with a glass of sparkling wine at the main market in Germany's oldest city. In the midst of historical houses and Roman monuments, you toast your active cycling and hiking tour. In the evening a multi-course meal awaits you in a historic restaurant.

Day 2 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Trier to Leiwen
Cyclists feast during the Moselle bike tour

The bike tour starts on the historical bike path. You drive along the Moselle past meadows, forests and vineyards. On the way you stop in a vinotheque for a “Deluxe” cyclist's feast before you continue along the Roman Wine Route on the Moselle Cycle Path to Leiwen.

Day 3 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Leiwen to Bernkastel-Kues
Half-timbered houses in Bernkastel-Kues on the market square

In the oldest wine village in Germany you can see a faithful replica of a Roman wine ship and in Piesport one of the largest Roman wine presses north of the Alps. Continue along the Moselle cycle path to Bernkastel-Kues, where you park your bike and explore the fairytale old town. In the evening you shouldn't miss a tour of the medieval city. Possibly accompanied by a night watchman who can tell many interesting stories. You spend two nights in Bernkastel-Kues.

Day 4 - Hike
Circular route Bernkasteler Schweiz
The ferry tower of Schweich

Today you hike over a few inclines and serpentines through Bernkasteler Schweiz, where you are accompanied by the Tiefenbach. The Bresgensruh lookout point is located steeply above the small waterfall. A narrow path takes you to the stone cross before you reach the Burgberg tunnel and the old town of Bernkastel again.

Day 5 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Bernkastel-Kues to Traben-Trarbach
The Buddha museum in Traben-Trarbach

You drive down the Moselle on the Moselle Cycle Path and reach the Machern monastery. An excellent beer is brewed here. Distillates can also be tasted in a cellar. There is also a toy and icon museum. After visiting the monastery, you continue to cycle to the the Art Nouveau town of Traben-Trarbach, which not only impresses with its winding streets and the Buddha Museum. You will spend the next two days in Traben-Trarbach.

Day 6 - Hike Moselsteig Trail Stage 13
Traben-Trarbach to Reil
Excursion boat on the Moselle

Right at the beginning of the Moselsteig Trail stage, the steep ascent to the ruins of the Grevenburg demands your fitness. If you decide to take the part of the pilgrimage path on the way, then the view from the Heavenly Gate is particularly impressive. From the Bismarckhöhe you can enjoy an incomparable view of the loop art of the Moselle right before Traben-Trarbach. The later descent to the wine town of Reil is done quickly and takes you directly to the town's train station. Before leaving Reil, you should try a glass of the Reiler hot stone. The way back to Traben-Trarbach is easy with the Moselle excursion boat.

Day 7

Hikers in the vineyard on the Moselsteig Trail

You have experienced the most beautiful bends in the Moselle during your cycling and hiking tour. If you would like a day off before, during and / or after the tour, please contact us.

categories of accommodation

Accommodations - close to centre in mentioned places
Our centrally located overnight partners on the Moselle are selected middle and superior class hotels, guest houses and inns. All rooms have a bath / toilet or shower / toilet.

Accommodation category standard
In the standard category there are rooms in pensions and guest houses with simple furnishings. In Trier there are typical city hotels.

In the comfort category, we reserve 3-star accommodations for you. At the same time, the rooms are somewhat larger than in the standard category and have "extra" features. If necessary in a quieter location, with new equipment or with a balcony / terrace.

Shelter for your own bicycle
All accommodation partners used for our bike tour programs have suitable storage facilities for bicycles. Charging the batteries of e-bikes is also possible.

general info

Possible start of the journey
For our multi-stage tours, we recommend arriving at the weekend, as experience has shown that availability is then highest.

Holidays Major events
You should book a trip during the holiday weeks, to wine and street festivals or other major events in good time. There may be a surcharge, minimum nights or changes in the program.

Meals Half board Packed lunches
The travel price includes the corresponding rich breakfast for each night of our travel programs. Additional nights and extensions are also included breakfast.

The booking of half board and also packed lunches is possible via the item "Additional services accommodation".

Our tip
Book the packed lunch right away. So you are well equipped during your hikes and independent of the few refreshments at the edge of the trail and their opening hours.

Additional nights Extensions
You can arrive earlier or extend your vacation afterwards. You can reserve additional nights as a pre- or post-night stay when booking your trip. Should you wish to stay one more night in a location during your trip, please let us know using the comment field of your booking or give us a call.

Bed tax Guest tax
We would like to point out that some cities levy a culture tax or bed tax. The fees will be collected directly at your accommodation.

List of accommodation
Specific accommodation names are not available prior to a fixed booking. The background to this is the possibility of daily arrival, which for us excludes the purchase of fixed room quotas. In addition, we work together with several accommodation partners per location – always matching the respective theme of the trip and the requirements of the individual booking.

Special food and accommodation
Necessary requests for special dietary or allergy-prone nutrition or physical limitations are communicated to our service partners with the fixed booking without obligation.

Short-term travel requests
Even short-term travel requests require a binding booking, as otherwise availabilities cannot be queried. If the trip is not possible due to a lack of availability, we will provide you with an alternative offer upon request. If you do not wish this, your booking will be canceled free of charge.

Invoice
A booking confirmation / invoice is issued to the travel applicant for each booking. If you are traveling as a group, but would like separate invoices, please make separate bookings, stating a group name. Subsequent splitting of processes and invoices is not technically possible.

Payment
The down payment is 30% of the travel price plus insurance premium (if travel insurance is also taken out) after receipt of the booking confirmation. The remaining payment is due four weeks before the start of the journey. For bookings less than 6 weeks before the start of the journey, the entire travel price is due immediately.

Travel documents
The travel applicant receives the travel documents and the service vouchers for all travel participants by post approx. 14 days before arrival - provided that the travel price has been paid in full. One set of travel documents is created for each room. This includes: a detailed day-to-day travel description, the hotel list with addresses and check-in information, maps with further tips for visiting and sightseeing, city and local maps, as well as recommendations for places to stop and an emergency contact list. In the case of short-term bookings and a foreign address, we will store the complete travel documents in your first hotel. You will receive the exact travel description including the hotel list in advance by email.

Travel insurance
We recommend that you take out travel insurance including travel cancellation, interruption, rebooking fees and luggage insurance. You can find further information on this under the item "explanations" "Travel Insurance" on our homepage.
