DAY 1: ARRIVAL TO TRIER
Your vacation begins with a glass of sparkling wine at the main market in Germany's oldest city. In the midst of historical houses and Roman monuments, you toast your active cycling and hiking tour. In the evening a multi-course meal awaits you in a historic restaurant.
DAY 2: CYCLING TOUR TRIER TO LEIWEN | 38 KM
The bike tour starts on the historical bike path. You drive along the Moselle past meadows, forests and vineyards. On the way you stop in a vinotheque for a “Deluxe” cyclist's feast before you continue along the Roman Wine Route to Leiwen.
DAY 3: CYCLING TOUR LEIWEN TO BERNKASTEL-KUES | 31 KM
In the oldest wine village in Germany you can see a faithful replica of a Roman wine ship and in Piesport one of the largest Roman wine presses north of the Alps. Park your bike in Bernkastel-Kues and explore the fairytale old town. In the evening you shouldn't miss a tour of the medieval city. Possibly accompanied by a night watchman who can tell many interesting stories. You spend two nights in Bernkastel-Kues.
DAY 4: HIKE BERNKASTEL-KUES | 11 KM
Today you hike over a few inclines and serpentines through Bernkasteler Schweiz, where you are accompanied by the Tiefenbach. The Bresgensruh lookout point is located steeply above the small waterfall. A narrow path takes you to the stone cross before you reach the Burgberg tunnel and the old town of Bernkastel again.
DAY 5: CYCLING TOUR BERNKASTEL-KUES TO TRABEN-TRARBACH | 26 KM
You drive down the Moselle and reach the Machern monastery. An excellent beer is brewed here. Distillates can also be tasted in a cellar. There is also a toy and icon museum. After visiting the monastery, you cycle to the Bad Wildstein thermal spring. A visit to the recreational pool ensures relaxation. We continue to the Art Nouveau town of Traben-Trarbach, which not only impresses with its winding streets and the Buddha Museum. You will spend the next two days in Traben-Trarbach.
DAY 6: MOSELSTEIG STAGE 13 | TRABEN-TRARBACH TO REIL | 15 KM
Right at the beginning of the stage, the steep ascent to the ruins of the Grevenburg demands your fitness. If you decide to take the part of the pilgrimage path on the way, then the view from the Heavenly Gate is particularly impressive. From the Bismarckhöhe you can enjoy an incomparable view of the loop art of the Moselle right before Traben-Trarbach. The later descent to the wine town of Reil is done quickly and takes you directly to the town's train station. Before leaving Reil, you should try a glass of the Reiler hot stone. The way back to Traben-Trarbach is easy with the Moselle boat.
DAY 7: DEPARTURE FROM TRABEN-TRARBACH
You have experienced the most beautiful bends in the Moselle during your cycling and hiking tour. If you would like a day off before, during and / or after the tour, please contact us.
