You would like to cycle down the Moselle?
Great idea: The upper Mosel cycle path – from Schengen to Trier – is a (Ver-)Träumchen – the further way to Koblenz a majestic classic!
Enjoy the Moselle valley in eight wonderful days between lovely wine villages, steep mountain slopes of Eifel and Hunsrück, once mighty castles of the Trier, Chur-Main and Cologne archbishoprics. Enjoy the Mosel hospitality at every turn. Directly from the German-French border in the three-country corner of Luxembourg, France, Germany, you will first drive through the wide floodplains in the upper reaches of the Moselle along the river to the Roman city of Trier.
On your way to the Deutsches Eck in the heart of Koblenz, you will cycle through charming wine-growing villages below the steepest vineyard in Germany, the Calmont and the Reichsburg Cochem.
In 8 day stages you will get from Trier to the lively old town of Koblenz. On the way, you will have plenty of time to stop at the countless Straußenwirtschaften and wine cellars and get to know the world of winegrowers.
You will stay in real Moselan, regionally typical, very good middle class hotels of the 3*** category – always with their own wine magic.
