The Moselle Cycle Path
From Trier to Koblenz
On the route from Trier to Koblenz is one of the most beautiful river bike tours in Germany. Between Hunsrück and Eifel, the Moselle Cycle Path runs mostly flat on around 250 kilometers of bike and most of the time directly along the riverbank. The Moselle with its unique river landscape rises in France, crosses Luxembourg on its way to Germany, and then flows into the Rhine near Koblenz. Starting point of the Mosel cycle path is Trier. Germany's oldest city was founded by the Romans.
Even today, there are numerous, well-preserved Roman monuments, which are among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Absolutely worth seeing are the Imperial Baths, which at that time belonged to the largest baths of the Roman Empire. Let us take you on an adventure tour into the unique Roman history of the city. From Trier you should definitely take a bike trip to Saarburg. The city on the Saar is known for the 20-meter high waterfall, which plunges into the depths of the city.
From Trier you will reach breathtakingly beautiful wine regions Trittenheim, the oldest wine town in Germany. Surrounded on both sides by vineyards, the bike path on the Moselle is generally characterized by wine. Next you reach one of Germany's most famous wine villages, Bernkastel-Kues.
