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

Trier winemakers welcome you to the historic market square with a glass of Moselle sparkling wine. They can certainly tell you one story or another. Stroll through the Moselle metropolis and discover the cultural diversity of the city.

Day 2 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Trier to Trittenheim
Wine tasting with red wines and white wines

Your bike tour begins today: ride the Moselle cycle path along the Moselle on the Roman Wine Route, which was used to transport wine in ancient times. In Mehring you visit the Villa Rustica and get an impression of rural life in Roman times. In the evening you can taste the Moselle wine at the winemaker and learn a lot about the work in the vineyard.

Day 3 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Trittenheim to Kröv
View of Kröv from the vineyards

Along the Middle Moselle you come to the oldest wine village in Germany - Neumagen-Dhron. In which the replica of a Roman wine ship is at anchor. Pause your tour on the Moselle Cycle Path in the medieval town of Bernkastel-Kues, the birthplace of Nicholas Cusanus. His writings and astrological devices can be viewed in the Cusanus pen. We continue to Kröv, the hometown of the »Kröver Nacktarsch«.

Day 4 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Kröv to Ediger-Eller
View of Traben-Trarbach with the Moselle bridge

Cycle to the Art Nouveau town of Traben-Trarbach, which has some architectural features. The Moselle cycle path takes you further through the realm of the Zell Black Cat, a famous vineyard, and you will soon see your destination for the day, Ediger-Eller at the Calmont. Your accommodation for the next two nights is located on the steepest vineyard in Europe. Enjoy a Moselle menu in the evening.

Day 5
Lust & mood day in Ediger-Eller
Moselle excursion boat near Ürzig

Today you decide according to your mood. An additional bike tour along the Moselle, a comfortable Moselle boat trip or would you prefer a hike on the Moselsteig Trail? Enjoy your day off the way you want. We are happy to give you our leisure tips at hand.

Day 6
Own managed departure from Ediger-Eller
View of Ediger-Eller

During your pleasure and wine stage bike tour, you were allowed to look over the shoulders of the winemaker and taste the Moselle Riesling. If you would like to learn more about the Moselle and see it, we recommend additional enjoyment days after the tour.

Our tip
Hike / Moselle boat trip on the mood day or additional day

Your accommodation is located directly on the Calmont. Hike the Höhenweg or experience the thrill of the via ferrata. Alternatively, you can enjoy the Moselle on a boat trip to the medieval city of Cochem. Here a tour with a visit to the well-preserved Reichsburg is worthwhile.

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.

Single room bookings
In many cases, the single rooms booked in your accommodation are double rooms for single use.

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 "Additional services accommodations".

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.

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.
