Cycling holiday along the Mosel

The beautiful and peaceful route offers you easy cycling along the Mosel River, which winds its way along steep, angled vine-covered slopes. Small charming villages and vineyards invite you to take a coffee break and a tasting of Mosel's delicious wines. Experience the old Roman city of Trier, Germany's oldest with a magnificent cathedral, as well as the beautiful wine towns Bernkastel-Kues, Traben-Tarbach, Cochem and Neumagen-Dhron. The route ends in Koblenz, the city where the Rhine and Mosel meet at "Deutches Eck".

Accommodation

You'll be staying at cozy 2-3* hotels and gasthäuser (guesthouses).
You can choose to upgrade to 3-4* hotels at an additional cost.
The 2-3* hotels may in some cases be located slightly outside the city centre.

Degree of difficulty (1) and maps

A short, easy and extremely beautiful route on good cycle paths. A total of approx. 200 km split into short day stages without significant climbs, so everyone will be able to handle this route (difficulty level 1).
You will receive maps, route description and practical information. Upon arrival at the first hotel, you will get detailed cycling maps and detailed route description in English/German, unless you have received it before departure. 

* We note that the map is indicative and therefore does not contain precise route information.
