Hotel Park Plaza
You will stay at the 4**** Superior Hotel Park Plaza in the centre of Trier, close to Porta Nigra and the Duomo. Depending on the booked category, stay in a comfort or superior room with double bed. The comfort rooms are equipped with desk, free Wi-Fi, TV, telephone, coffee and tea station and air conditioning. The Superior rooms are all located to the hotel's Mediterranean courtyard and offer comfort facilities
with a bottle of mineral water upon arrival and a sauna set (bathrobe, sauna towel and slippers). Relax in the 28 m² Mini Gym or in the wellness area of the hotel with sauna, Roman steam bath, laconium, ice grotto etc. The Restaurant Plaza Grill offers the perfect place with the cosy lounge bar. In the morning a rich breakfast leaves nothing to be desired.
Plan enough time for sightseeing in Trier. All car travelers can park their vehicle at the hotel, all train travelers go to Trier main station.
For your excursion to the Saar Loop, we recommend that you first take the train to Mettlach today (duration 41 minutes), because this way you can follow the Saar and Moselle in the direction of the river back to Trier. In the Villeroy & Boch experience center in Mettlach, a world company, a thousand years of history, centuries of tradition and trend-setting home decor await you. From Mettlach we recommend you to change to the left side of the Saar and after about 4 km upstream you cycle in the middle of the famous Saar loop. There you climb the Cloef on foot and enjoy the wonderful view of the Saar loop. Then get back on your bike and cycle along the Saar back to the Moselle. Take a break in Saarburg, a town well worth seeing, before you cycle along the Moselle via Konz back to Trier.
Today you will set off for Trittenheim. On the beautiful, well-maintained Moselle Cycle Path you will first pass the Old Ferry Tower in Schweich to Mehring. There you must not miss a break at the historical remains of the Villa Rustica, before you continue on your way to Trittenheim. For the return trip to Trier, there are three options you can choose from: for the very sporty, you can cycle back to Trier or you can take it easy and board a Moselle boat in Trittenheim and thus return to Trier. Alternatively, you can cycle from Trittenheim on the other bank of the Moselle back to Schweich (20 km), and take the train from there back to Trier.
Today you will leave the bikes and set off on foot for a sightseeing tour of Trier. You will learn about the history of this wonderful city, which was already founded by the Romans and pay a visit to the Porta Nigra, the remains of Roman bathhouses, the stone bridge over the Moselle and many other sights. There is a whole day reserved for you in Trier.
Today you are going up the Moselle. We recommend you start the morning with a train ride to Nennig (duration 40 minutes). Nennig became famous for its Roman villa and its beautiful mosaic floor, which was discovered by a farmer in 1852 while digging a turnip pit. The floor found was probably in a large entrance hall of a magnificent villa urbana of a rich Roman landowner. After visiting the Roman villa, you can take a leisurely bike ride back to Trier (42 km). For the more sporty cyclists there is the following option: in the morning cycle up the Moselle to Nenning and from there continue the cycling trip to Luxembourg City (+32 km). In the evening you can comfortably return 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.
