You can look forward to Trier and plan enough time for a visit. You stay in the elegant Hotel Villa Hügel or just 500 meters from the cathedral, in the 4-star superior Hotel Park Plaza.
Today you ride comfortably on the Mosel cycle path to the old ferry tower in Schweich. Just a few kilometers further in Mehring you can visit Villa Rustica. Marvel at the freely accessible area and the historic remains of a Roman estate, before you follow the Mosel cycle path to Neumagen-Dhron, the oldest wine town in Germany. Look forward to a family-run winegrower hotel in Piesport (Schanz Hotel) or Wintrich (Weingutshotel St. Michael) with tastefully furnished rooms, an in-house wine tavern and a wonderful terrace with Mediterranean flair.
With Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach, today's day has two wonderful Moselle towns ready for you. Enjoy a tranquil boat trip in Bernkastel-Kues, stroll through the pretty half-timbered town or visit the remarkable wine museum. Passing the Zeltinger sundial, the largest sundial in a German vineyard, you cycle on the Moselle Cycle Path to Traben-Trarbach. Marvel at Traben-Trarbach at the bridge gate, the landmark of the old city. Built as a decorative bridge in 1899, it has housed a café-restaurant since its construction. In the 1960s, a conversion also added a gallery with temporary exhibitions.
Small and large pearls are waiting for you today. Immediately after 5 km, take a rewarding break in the small village of Enkirch. Marvel at the interesting Mosellan half-timbered architecture and stroll along the 3 km long "Gässchen Rundweg" to get to know Enkirch's hidden corners. Hardly in the bicycle saddle you reach Reil which is located on the other bank of the Moselle. A small village with narrow streets, stylish old half-timbered houses and quaint cellars, testify to a colorful past and 1000 years of wine culture. But also the half-timbered idyll of Pünderich (6 km before Zell) and the village Beilstein (10 km before Cochem) are waiting for your visit. Go on an entertaining sightseeing tour in Cochem with a lendable GPS-supported city guide and be sure to visit the remarkable Reichsburg Cochem before you end your day in peace.
Who does not shy away from the effort, today can make a worthwhile detour to the castle Eltz. The castle Eltz is a hilltop castle from the 12th century and is one of the most famous castles in Germany. Through the historic wine-growing towns of Kobern-Gondorf and Winningen, you cycle flatly to the mouth of the Moselle to the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz. Take a cable car ride across the Rhine to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress and enjoy a spectacular view of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley from the panoramic cabin.
Much too fast passed the beautiful time. If you like, book a return transfer to Trier or another night on the Rhine or Moselle.
