Trier - a beautiful and meaningful city influenced by the Romans. The Porta Nigra is the best preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps, the Imperial Baths and the amphitheatre, which was built 100 AD and had a capacity of 20,000 spectators. On three cycle stages you can experience the beautiful Moselle, the famous Saar and sporty ambitious people can even cycle to the city centre of Luxembourg, which is considered one of the capitals of the European Union.

Highlights

Porta Nigra
For the newly arrived guest, the Porta Nigra is the best place to begin a tour of Trier.

Porta Nigra

Kaiserthermen
Going to the baths was an important part of Roman life: Over 1600 years ago, the Romans built one of the grandest and most impressive baths in the world: the Imperial Baths.

Tour

You should plan enough time to visit the historic city centre, the Imperial Baths and the Porta Nigra. If you arrive by car you can park your vehicle at the hotel. If our arrive by train you travel to Trier mainstation. No matter how you arrive, your booked rental bike is ready for you at the hotel and is waiting to show you the lovely Moselle Valley.

Today we recommend a train ride to Mettlach (duration 41 minutes). In Mettlach you should visit a world company, thousand-year history, centuries of tradition and trend-setting home décor- all this is encountered in the Villeroy & Boch adventure centre. We recommend to change to the left side of the Saar in Mettlach and cycle 4 km up the Saar in the middle of the famous Saarloop. Get off the bike and climb up to the Cloef on Schuster's rapping. From up here you can enjoy a fantastic view of the famous Saar Loop. Back on your bike, follow the Saar cycle path towards the Moselle. You should definitely plan a nice break in the interesting place Saarburg before you roll over Konz back to Trier.

Look forward to the beautiful and well-developed Moselle cycle path. You cycle comfortably in the flat past the Old Ferry Tower from Schweich to Mehring. Here we recommend a break at the historical remains of Villa Rustica before continuing on the way to Trittenheim. You can arrange the return trip to Trier individually, either by bike for the sporty riders or by boat from Trittenheim. Alternatively, cycle from Trittenheim on the other bank of the Moselle to Schweich (20 km). From Schweich you can go by train back to Trier. 

Today you leave your bikes at the hotel and experience Trier on foot on a city tour. Get to know the history of this wonderful city, which was already founded by the Romans. Visit the Porta Nigra, the remains of Roman bath houses, a stone bridge over the Moselle and many other sights.

Today you can explore the Moselle upwards. In the morning we recommend a train ride to Nennig (duration 40 minutes). Nennig is famous for it´s Roman villa and its beautiful mosaic floor. In 1852 a farmer came across mosaic stones that turned out to be parts of a representative Roman mosaic floor. The ground was probably in the large reception hall of a magnificent villa urbana. So you have the choice. Either you visit the Roman villa and then cycle 42 km comfortably on the Moselle bike path back to Trier or you cycle in the morning directly from Trier upstream to Nennig and continue the tour there with a bike trip to Luxembourg City (+32 km for sporty riders). In the evening you go back to Trier by train (duration 50 minutes).

Time passed too quickly. Trier has much more to offer. Book an extension of your cycling trip in Trier or follow the Moselle cycle path to Koblenz. It's worth it!

Condition of cycle path

The quality of the Moselle bike path is very good. There are practical no unpaved or poorly developed path. The route runs almost exclusively on paved roads and is very well signposted. The volume of traffic varies, but between Trier and Cochem there is almost always a seperate bike trail on the right or left shore side, off the main road. The Saar cycle path is almost always flat, right on the riverbank of the Saar, mostly on a separate paved or finely graveled bike path.

In short, the Saar cycle path is perfectly developed with high path quality.

Available rental bikes

7 speed bike
27 speed bike
Velociped E-Bike
7 speed bike

We would recommend the 7-speed tourer for all those that are looking for a back-pedal brake and wide gel seat for maximum comfort in an upright sitting position. It is equipped with a simple hub gear shift and is perfectly suited to tours on flat to slightly hilly terrain.

27 speed bike

The 27-speed tourer is the best choice for cyclists that value the advantages of the dérailleur gear shift for flexibility whilst going up and down hills. This bike allows you to be a little more active without compromising on saddle comfort and practical everyday suitability.

Velociped E-Bike

 

E-bikes combine a lot of advantages. The electric drive ensures a completely relaxed cycling, even during long tours or on hilly routes. Other features, such as a suspension seat post and front fork plus well-tuned gears, ensure additional riding comfort.
