tour description

Moselle: Romantic- and charming-hotels

Enjoy the Moselle Cycle Path and stay overnight in our specially selected charming hotels. Elegant comfort, quiet and romantic atmosphere and still close to the center of Trier, you will stay at the Hotel Villa Hügel in Trier or just an 8-minute walk from the cathedral in the 4-star superior Hotel Park Plaza. Enjoy on the day of arrival the beautiful sauna area and the swimming pool to rest, relax and unwind. In Piesport or Wintrich you can look forward to a family-run wine-growing hotel with tastefully furnished rooms, an in-house wine bar and a wonderful terrace with a Mediterranean flair in Schanz Hotel Piesport or Weingutshotel St. Michael in Wintrich. In Traben-Trarbach, the historic Romantik Jugendstilhotel Bellevue awaits you with a spacious beauty and wellness area. Located in Cochem you sleep in the family-run 4-star Superior Hotel Kessler-Meyer or Schlosshotel Petry in Treis-Karden. For a good night's sleep in Koblenz, you stay at the modern Hotel Kleiner Riese directly on the Rhine promenade or at the 4-star Mercure hotel. 

1. day Trier Arrival

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.

2. day Trier – Piesport/Wintrich 48 km/55 km

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.

3. day Piesport/Wintrich – Traben-Trarbach/Reil 32 – 50 km

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.

4. day Traben-Trarbach/Reil – Cochem/Treis-Karden 46 – 66 km

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.

5. day Cochem/Treis-Karden – Koblenz 54 km/43 km

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.

6. day Koblenz Departure

Much too fast passed the beautiful time. If you like, book a return transfer to Trier or another night on the Rhine or Moselle.

Reichsburg Cochem

The contours of the neo-gothic building rise more than about 330 ft above the river Moselle on an outstanding hill. The silhouette of the towering hill seems to continue in the building which is topped by the slate roof of the massive keep. As for its structure, Cochem Castle belongs to the category of castles protected by height that had to be protected all around. Romanesque fragments found in the well indicate a reinforcement of the castle around 1056.

Reichsburg Cochem

Deutsches Eck Koblenz

The establishment of the Teutonic Order at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle in 1216 gave this historic site its name, the “Deutsches Eck” (“German Corner”). Koblenz also owes its name to the meeting point of the Rhine and the Moselle - from “Castellum apud Confluentes”, Latin for “fort at the confluence”, which over time became the current name of Koblenz.

Deutsches Eck

Fortress Ehrenbreitstein Koblenz

At 118 metres above the Rhine, the fortress has the most fantastic views over Koblenz and the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. The Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the second largest preserved fortress in Europe, was constructed in its present form between 1817 and 1828. Its origin dates back to the year 1000. Today the fortress is home to the Landesmuseum Koblenz with its diverse exhibitions (e.g. the technical history and archaeology of the country, fortress history with over 20 exciting stations, multimedia presentations and much more), and is also home to the Ehrenmal des Heeres army monument and the Koblenz youth hostel.

Fortress Ehrenbreitstein

Shipping on the Moselle

The Moselle travels a total of 520 kilometers from its source at the Col de Bussang in the Vosges to its mouth at the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz - the airline between the source and the mouth is only 278 kilometers - overcoming a gradient of 676 meters. As a true European river, it flows through France for a distance of 278 kilometers, then forms a natural border between Luxembourg and Germany over 36 kilometers to flow into the Rhine after 206 kilometers in Rhineland-Palatinate. The Mosel can be navigated from Thionville in Lorraine to 392 kilometers, but 15 barrages with locks are necessary to compensate for the difference in altitude. The "White Fleet" in the Moselle region offers very special experiences: behind each bend, there is a new view of steep vineyards, romantic villages and historic sights. From the tour over extensive day trips to the romantic evening ride with music ranges the range of steamers and excursion boats.
