Day 1: Individual Arrival in Treves

Discover 2000 years of history in 2000 steps: From the Roman city gate Porta Nigra and the Roman House of Three Kings to the rococo palace of the Elector ‒ within its walls Trier can show you a lot of German history. Definitely try the Riesling wines here from the Mosel-Ruwer region. Reserved rental bicycles are parked at the hotel ready for you.

Day 2: Excursion to Trittenheim / Bernkastel-Kues, approx. 40 km / 70 km + boat

From Treves you will follow the Moselle down river. The largest steep terrain winegrowing region in the world dominates the landscape along the meanders of the Moselle. You will be able to test the famous Moselle wine in one of the small villages. You can follow along the Moselle Cycle Path for as long as you want – visit nearby Trittenheim and the wine taverns of the Moselle boats located there or you stop at Bernkastel-Kues to view the medieval market place with its timber-framed houses. You can then return to Treves by boat or with the cyclists’ bus service (not included).

Day 3: Excursion along the Saar to Merzig, approx. 60 km + train journey

Today you will cycle from Treves to Konz and further along the Saar to Merzig. Along the way you can gain an insight into the cultural history of the region by visiting the Open Air Museum of Roscheider Hof near Konz and take a walk through the medieval Old Town of Saarburg with its famous castle of the same name. In Mettlach you will be able to gain an insight into the history of the ceramic factory of Villeroy & Boch which has its main office here, before coming to the famous Saar Bend shortly before Merzig. From Merzig you can take the train back to Treves (not included).

Day 4: Excursion along the river Sauer from Echternach, approx. 40 km + bus or approx. 80 km

Today you start with a bus ride to Echternach (not included). Please note that the bus in the Sauer Valley cannot transport e-bikes. If you want to do the Centre Based Cycling Tour Treves with your e-bike, you can either take both routes by bus or by e-bike. In Echternach the Anglo-Saxon missionary Willibrord founded a monastery in 697, which is the starting point of the annual Echternach jumping procession. Back to Treves you first follow the river Sauer through the Luxembourg Switzerland. In Wasserbillig you have reached the Moselle again and cycle back to Treves on the Moselle cycle path.

Day 5: Individual journey home

After breakfast your cycling tour from Treves comes to an end.
