travel description
Day 1
Own managed arrival to Ediger-Eller
Half timbered houses in Ediger-Eller

Travel comfortably to Ediger-Eller in the wonderful river landscape with lush vineyards. After the Celts and the Merovingians, the place experienced a heyday under the rule of the Trier electors. The place worth seeing with its well-preserved half-timbered houses and a medieval city wall is also known as "Rothenburg" on the Moselle.

Day 2 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Ediger-Eller to Cochem and back
View of Cochem with Reichsburg and Moselle bank

After a hearty breakfast you cycle off. On the other side of the Moselle you reach Beilstein, also known as the "Sleeping Beauty" of the Moselle. Romantic half-timbered houses are lined up one after the other and have already formed a film set several times. We continue down the Moselle on the Moselle Cycle Path towards Cochem. Explore the historic old town of the lively Moselle city and hike up to the Reichsburg. A visit to the former underground secret bunker of the Deutsche Bundesbank is also worth seeing. 15 billion DM were once stored here. You can return to Ediger-Eller by boat or bike along the river. In the evening you will learn something about the work in steep vineyards at the winemaker's during a wine tasting. Afterwards, a meal from the manufactory of tarte flambée awaits you to strengthen yourself.

Day 3 - Bike tour Moselle Cycle Path
Ediger-Eller to Zell(Moselle) and back
View of Zell with tower Collis

Cycle along the Moselle Cycle Path into the realm of the "Zeller Schwarze Katz". You should dare to go up to the Marienburg and the Prinzenkopf observation tower, the view from there is spectacular. If you prefer it more relaxed, you should enjoy a stroll through the old streets or a glass of wine on the promenade. On your way back you will stop at Sankt Aldegund, where a historic wine museum with a gourmet factory awaits you. As a memento of your stay on the Moselle, you can take a small treat home with you. It's not far from here to Ediger-Eller. On your last holiday evening, we invite you to enjoy fresh delicacies from the winegrower's kitchen in a wild, romantic atmosphere.

Day 4
Own managed departure from Ediger-Eller
View of Ediger-Eller from the vineyards

Today you will start your journey home from your star tour from Ediger-Eller. You have taken leisurely bike tours, experienced romantic moments and a happy break from everyday life. If you would like to experience more of the pleasure & wine region, then extend your vacation with us.

Our tip
Rent a canoe or stand-up paddle or experience the thrill of the Calmont via ferrata.

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

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.
