By public transport
Schweich has its own train station on the outskirts of town. From here it is about two kilometers to the other end of town. The accommodations are all located within this radius and can therefore be reached on foot or by taxi.

The easiest way to return home from Bernkastel-Kues is to take the public bus from the “Forum” stop - this is a short distance from most accommodations. From here you drive to Wittlich train station and can continue by train from there. Alternatively, you can of course also take a taxi from Bernkastel-Kues to Wittlich train station.

By plane
There are six airports within a radius of approximately 250 km around Trier and Bernkastel-Kues - Saarbrücken, Luxembourg, Frankfurt/Hahn, Frankfurt, Cologne-Bonn and Düsseldorf. All airports have rental car locations. Alternatively, we are happy to offer you an airport transfer upon request.

By car / Parking
Schweich and Bernkastel-Kues are easy to reach by car.

Most of our accommodations in Schweich have a limited number of private parking spaces. There are sufficient public parking spaces available.

In addition to parking in a limited number of on-site parking spaces, parking in Bernkastel-Kues is easiest in public parking spaces. This is possible and safe in both parts of the city on the left and right of the Moselle.

Car chauffeur service
Exclusively with us and useful when your home is closer to Bernkastel-Kues than to Schweich. Save yourself the time-consuming return transfer. More info

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.

Accommodation category comfort
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

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 item "Additional services accommodation".

Our tip
Book the packed lunch right away. So you are well equipped during your hikes and independent of the few refreshments at the edge of the trail and their opening hours.

Additional nights Extensions
You can arrive earlier or extend your bike tour afterwards. You can reserve additional nights as a pre- or post-night stay when booking your trip.

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 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.
