Arrive early to Luxembourg because this cosmopolitan city has much to offer. Visit the Notre Dame Cathedral, the impressive casemates and the Ducal Palace. Parking and bicycle rental on site.
Take a last look at the enchanting and powerful bastion before you leave Luxembourg. The little river Alzette leads out to the country. You cycle now on small country roads, through tiny villages, through hilly landscape with green forest and colorful fields. Of course there are some climbs to master, but unpaved road sections do not exist. Look forward to Remich, whose southern flair can be felt in the many cafes and bistros on the 3 km long Moselle promenade. After that you cycle on to Perl.
Today you will accompany the first time the vast vineyards right and left of the Moselle. You cycle till Konz where you cross the mouth of the Saar and Mosel. From there it is not far to Trier and therefore you have time for a leisurely walking tour with a visit to the Porta Nigra, the amphitheater, the Imperial Baths or the magnificent cathedral.
Today, Roman past and contemporary viniculture will meet. The Moselle bike trail leads you to Mehring, where the Villa Rustica waits for your visit. ‘Villa Rustica’ is the designation for a manor in the Roman Empire. Today, the reconstructed walls and foundations can be visited again. You will cycle to Trittenheim, where a nature trail informs about the man-year of the vine-grower, the local variety of grape and the process of vine-growing. Just before reaching today’s destination, you will pass Neumagen-Dhron, Germany’s oldest wine-growing place! You should stop here to taste some of that wine!
The two famous Moselle towns Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach and the well-known wine growing resort "Kröver Nacktarsch" are today’s highlight! Marvel at the colorful and manifold half-timbered constructions seaming the market place of Bernkastel-Kues. In Traben-Trarbach, you should take a boat trip.
You will discover Enkirch today, a jewel of the Moselle region’s traditional half-timbered architecture. Later on, you will reach Zell, the wine-growing resort with the ‚Zeller Schwarzen Katz’ (‚The Black cat of Zell’). Take a relaxing break in the small town of Beilstein, proud of its surname „Rothenburg an der Mosel“. Then, you will reach Cochem with its picturesque centre and the ancient realm dating from the 11th century.
Before the Moselle bike trail takes you to the neat wine-growing villages like Koben Gondorf or Winningen and to the Deutsche Eck, you will have the chance to visit the medieval castle of Burg Eltz. Enjoy the wide view over the magnificent valley of the Rhine and be looking forward to a wonderful evening in Koblenz.
Your bike trip ends in Koblenz today. Saying good-bye is never easy, especially not to the winding Moselle bike trail. Anyone who wishes to travel back to Luxembourg should book our shuttle transfer via Trier. It will transport any luggage and the bikes as well. Departure will be at 9a.m., arrival in Luxembourg around 12.30p.m. If you wish to cycle even longer along the Rhine, you can prolong your trip to Cologne or Mainz.
