The Moselle Cycle Path

7 Days & 6 Nights
  • Relaxed hassle free cycling through the vineyards of Germany’s most famous wine growing region
  • Wine tasting at one of the many small cellars en route
  • Exploring the Roman City of Trier
  • Wandering the half-timbered streets of Bernkastel Kues, Tarben Tarbach, Enkirch and Neumagen Dhron
  • Tucking into the excellent regional delicacies each night
Enjoy a relaxed cycling holiday through Germany’s most famous wine growing area on the Moselle Cycle Path. A journey along the Moselle River filled with fabulous food, wine, castles and gorgeous medieval half-timbered villages. The Roman city of Trier is the starting point for your adventure through the vineyards of the Moselle Valley. Founded in 16BC, Trier is arguably Germany’s oldest city and overflows with classical and historical sights, including the Imperial Thermal Baths. Heading north from Trier you are immediately immersed in a landscape of forests, vineyard covered hills and villages filled with medieval half-timbered houses. Your journey along the Moselle visits the towns of Bernkastel Kues, Traben Tarbach, Cochem, Neumagen Dhron (the oldest German wine town) and Enkirch, a jewel of the regional medieval ‘Fachwerk’ (Tudor style) architecture. Perfectly suited to those that enjoy cycling on dedicated cycle paths and very few hills, riding the Moselle reveals a treasure trove of Germany's ancient history.
