Discover the fascinating world of the Mosel wines on this very special bike tour. These special wines have been pressed here for over 2000 years. Impressive slopes and terraces shape the countryside here as you cycle through idyllic little villages and towns, rich in tradition. In many places here, wine is grown according to the old traditions. Become acquainted with all these wine varieties on your wine tour along the Moselle and get to taste them in the evenings on the winemakers' farms. You'll be inspired by the Roman town of Trier, the charming Mosel towns of Beilstein and Cochem as well as the German Corner in Koblenz.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Treves / Ruwertal

Set off early to the gates of Trier so that you have enough time to visit the old Roman town. Traces of its 2000-year old history can be seen everywhere: the Roman city gate, Porta Nigra and the rococo palace of the Prince Electors are just two witnesses to the olden times. Your accommodation tonight is right amidst the vineyards. If you have booked bikes, they will be there, ready for you.

Day 2: Treves – Neumagen-Dhron / Piesport, approx. 40 / 45 km

Follow the Ruwertal Valley upstream along the Mosel. In the small town of Mehring with its famous ruin of the Villa Rustica, it's worth going on a wander through its windy little streets. Go and have a look at one of the wine-growing farms before you pedal off to the wine trail. In the afternoon, you arrive in Germany's oldest wine-growing town, Neumagen-Dhron, where your first wine-tasting awaits you.

Day 3: Neumagen-Dhron – Burg / Reil, approx. 50 / 55 km

After only a few kilometres, you arrive in the wine-growing village of Piesport, where you have the chance to test the excellent quality of the Piesport Goldtröpfchen. Wander over the Medieval market place in Bernkastel-Kues with its gable, timber-framed houses. Along the banks of the Mosel you pedal to Zeltingen with the well-known vineyard, Zeltinger Himmelreich.

Day 4: Reil – Pommern, approx. 60 km

You cycle through the wine-growing region of Zeller Schwarze Kath to Bullay. A double-decked bridge links the town with Alf on the other side of the Mosel. You also get to visit the romantic little town of Beilstein, known as the Mosel's sleeping beauty, and Cochem with the old Reichsburg Castle. Try a fruity Riesling wine from the world-famous Schiefer vineyards, before you cycle off to Pommern.

Day 5: Pommern – Coblenz, approx. 40 km

Today, you might be tempted to go on a little detour to the medieval castle Eltz, one of Germany's most beautiful castles. Back on the Mosel cycle path, you cycle to the small town of Kobern-Gondorf, steeped in history. We recommend a visit to the terraces of a vineyard and the rocky slopes, which can often only be cultivated by hand. Through Winningen you cycle to the German Corner where Mosel and Rhine meet.

Day 6: Individual departure or extended stay

After breakfast, your wine tour along the Moselle comes to an end. We are happy to extend your stay in Koblenz if you wish.
