travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Bernkastel-Kues
View of Bernkastel-Kues and the Moselle bank

You travel on your own to Bernkastel-Kues, from where you can explore the Middle Moselle and the Vulkaneifel by bike. Visit the Wine Museum to learn how winemakers work. In the city center you can look at half-timbered houses and fountains while you stroll through the idyllic little streets. As a welcome, we invite you to the pastry chef for a cup of coffee and a piece of Moselle wine cake or homemade pralines.

Day 2 - Bike tour Maars-Moselle-Cycle-Path
Daun to Bernkastel-Kues
Vesper plate with red wine in the vineyard

In the morning a transfer bus takes you to Daun, where your bike tour through the Vulkaneifel begins. Cycle comfortably down a disused railway line, the Maars-Moselle-Cycle-Path. The path leads you back towards the Moselle through illuminated tunnels and over viaducts, where the steam locomotive once puffed. You pass the maars - lakes that were created in extinct volcanic craters. At lunchtime you can take a delightful cycling break in a rustic barn café. Stroll through the medieval town center of Bernkastel-Kues in the evening and discover cozy little wine bars where you can have a nightcap or two.

Day 3 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Bernkastel-Kues to Traben-Trarbach and back
View of the bridge gate of Traben-Trarbach

On your stage down the Moselle you should look up every now and then. There you see the sundials in the vineyards. Ancient timepieces that work without any technology. The Hochmosel crossing, an imposing bridge, is also worth a look at the sky. You continue on the Moselle Cycle Path past well-known vineyards to Traben-Trarbach, the city known for its Art Nouveau architecture and its Buddha Museum. On the way back, you will stop at the former Cistercian monastery of Machern with its brewery, toy and icon museum. Try the home-brewed beer, because Bernkastel is only a stone's throw away.

Late afternoon
Own managed departure from Bernkastel-Kues
The medieval Bernkastel-Kues

You could get to know the Eifel and Middle Moselle during your star bike tour. Are you interested in discovering more of our Moselle region?

Our tip for an additional day
Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path Bernkastel-Kues to Piesport and back

Start up the Moselle via Lieser, with a castle well worth seeing, past a Roman wine press opposite Brauneberg to Piesport. Your route then takes you via Brauneberg with a walnut avenue worth seeing, past Mülheim, whose wines were served on the maiden flight of the Zeppelin, back to Bernkastel-Kues.

This tour is also good for groups!

categories of accommodation

Accommodations - close to centre in mentioned places

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

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.

general info

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 accommodation".

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.
