travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Trier
The Cathedral of Trier with the Cathedral garden

Your wellness vacation begins in Trier, the oldest city in Germany. Visit the small shops and numerous cafes while strolling through town. On the colorful and lively main market, toast with a glass of Moselle sparkling wine on a relaxed bike tour. Then enjoy moments of peace and serenity in the wellness area of ​​your hotel.

View of the city of Trier with the Moselle banks Zurlauben

Cycle a little up the Moselle from Trier. You will soon switch to the banks of the Saar and follow Saar Cycle Path to Saarburg, also known as "Little Venice". The old town is characterized by old fishermen's houses and small brook bridges. Don't miss the view of the waterfall in the middle of the city. On the way back you can cycle along a wild and romantic oxbow lake of the Saar. Depending on the day of the week, the return trip with the Moselle ship is possible.

Day 3 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Trier to Mülheim(Moselle)
Restaurant in Mülheim on the Moselle

From Trier follow the Moselle cycle path to Mehring. Visit the Villa Rustica and get an impression of rural life in Roman times. Passing an old walnut avenue in Brauneberg, you will reach Mülheim, your stage destination. You can relax and rest your tired legs in the hotel's wellness area.

Day 4 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Mülheim(Moselle) to Traben-Trarbach and back
The Buddha museum in Traben-Trarbach

First you reach the medieval-romantic Bernkastel-Kues, which enchants you with its half-timbered houses. In the further course of the Moselle Cycle Path you will discover the lively wine-growing town of Kröv. Relax in one of the idyllic wine gardens or in the village center.

It's not far to Traben-Trarbach. Here you will find a beautiful Moselle promenade and something you don't expect here: a unique Buddha Museum. Let yourself be carried away in the midst of the small and large, mildly smiling figures - enjoy a fragrant cup of tea and feel the magical effect and deceleration that Buddhism exudes. A very special place of power, not only for those interested in Buddha.

The Moselle ship will then take you to Zeltingen-Rachtig. The remaining distance is covered by bike. When you arrive in Mülheim, you can indulge your palate with an excellent dinner by candlelight.

Day 5
Own managed departure from Mülheim(Moselle)
Grapevine with red wine grapes in the Moselle valley

On your journey home, you will have many wonderful memories of a relaxing wellness bike tour in your luggage. You are welcome to extend your little break from everyday life with additional vacation days.

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.

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.

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.

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.
