travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Metz

Your cycling holiday starts in Metz, a former main residence of Rome, where you can admire buildings dating back three millennia, including the impressive cathedral and the theatre island.

Day 2 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Metz to Perl

Follow the cycle path along the Moselle, past numerous canals and through a flat, lakes-rich landscape. After the village of Gavisse, light rim mountains begin, which form the typical course of the Moselle with their loops.

In Thionville, the cycle path is well signposted as “Le Chemin de la Moselle” and continues through the charming Moselle valley. Finally, you reach Perl, the starting point of the uniformly signposted Moselle cycle path in Germany.

Day 3 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Perl to Trier

The Moselle Cycle Route from Perl to Trier is a picturesque route that leads through a beautiful landscape and cultural route. The route starts in Perl, where the Moselle runs its typical loops through the elevated rim mountains. On this route, the river forms the border between Luxembourg and Germany. An area that was already inhabited by the Romans and has a long tradition of wine-growing.

Along the Moselle cycle path there are numerous castles, palaces and Roman remains, such as the mosaic in Nennig. In Konz, the Saar meets the Moselle, which enriches the flow of water and the Saar cycle path joins the Moselle cycle path. The route ends in Trier, a city full of historical sights, including the famous Porta Nigra and many other testimonies from Roman and ecclesiastical times.

Once in Trier, you can look forward to a glass of sparkling wine at the Hauptmarkt.

Day 4 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Trier to Leiwen

From Trier, you continue along the Moselle cycle path, where you cycle at the first bridge to the left bank of the Moselle. First, the cycle path leads through an industrial area and the harbour area before turning back to the Moselle.

The Moselle cycle path is well developed and offers an easy ride, allowing you to enjoy the picturesque views and the idyllic vineyards. Along the way, there are plenty of opportunities for breaks in the shade and to experience the local culture and gastronomy.

Day 5 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Leiwen to Bernkastel-Kues

In Trittenheim you will get to know famous vineyards and in Germany’s oldest wine village you can admire a faithful replica of a Roman wine ship, the Stella Noviomagi. In Piesport you will find one of the largest Roman wine presses north of the Alps.

Passing the promenade of the wine village of Lieser, you will finally reach Bernkastel-Kues. Here, the medieval old town is particularly worth seeing. Visit the old town in the company of the night watchman, who has many interesting stories to tell.

Day 6 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Bernkastel-Kues to Zell(Mosel)

You cycle down the Moselle and reach the monastery of Machern, where an excellent beer is brewed. You can also taste distillates in a cellar. There is also a toy and an icon museum. After the monastery visit, you cycle along the Moselle cycle path to the thermal spring of Bad Wildstein and through the Art Nouveau town of Traben-Trarbach. In the area of the Schwarze Katz in Zell you should try the famous wine, which is made from the grapes of this vineyard.

Day 7 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Zell(Mosel) to Cochem

Today's stage of the Moselle cycle path takes you to the via ferrata on the Calmont and to the Sleeping Beauty village of Beilstein before you reach your overnight destination Cochem. The picture of this town is characterised by small alleys, a colourfully planted Moselle promenade and the late Gothic Reichsburg. Here, knightly feasts are offered on some days.

Day 8 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Cochem to Koblenz

Cycle along the Moselle cycle path past the Terrassenmosel, wine taverns, old half-timbered buildings and historical castles. In Koblenz, where the Moselle and Rhine merge at the Deutsches Eck, the cable car will take you to Ehrenbreitstein fortress before you end the evening with a walk through the alleys of the old town.

Day 9

We showed you the most beautiful Moselle centers and small wine villages on our stage tour from the popular Moselle pure series. If you would like a day of rest before, during and / or after the tour, please do not hesitate to contact us.

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.

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".

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.

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.

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.

You will receive the exact travel description including the hotel list in advance by email.

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.
