Free as the wind

Feel free – not just on the bike but already during the planning of the route you create the journey yourself. We offer cyclist individuality by our cycling stages to 'create by yourself'. The Moselle bike trail will definitely not leave anything to be desired: family holiday with short stages or training stages for racers, sights for cultural interested cyclists or the spontaneous fresh air activity for Sunday driver.

From the map and the distance table, choose your desired overnight accommodation. Use our tour planner for your exact planning. Here, you can flexibly put together a trip from 4 to 11 days. In doing so, you determine all the details of your trip such as overnight accommodation, daily stages and duration of the trip – please do not forget to include an arrival day and departure day. Finally, send us your completed travel plan and we will send you an offer that has been tailored to your wishes.
