The Hotel Vienna House Easy Trier is located directly at the Kaiserthermen and near the city center. The 105 air-conditioned rooms are modern and friendly with comfortable box spring beds, desk and telephone as well as cable TV. Of course you can use free WiFi and digital newspapers in your room.
Fortify yourself at breakfast with fresh rolls, crusty bread, delicious jams and egg dishes for the day's cycling. In the evening, review the day's experiences in the bar.
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. Along the route, you will find numerous information boards that will help you find your way around with detailed map sections. In short, the Saar cycle path is perfectly developed with high path quality.
