Bike & Barge Moselle and Saar

Boat and bike Moselle and Saar

Koblenz - Saarburg

„Little Venice“ is the destination of this bike & barge trip and the analogy hits the point. Saarburg is proud of 1000 years history, a medieval past and vivacious present. Nestling in midst of vineyards and forests within the triangle Germany-France-Luxembourg the heritage shows in many a monument.
The cultural and historic heritage will be a constant companion during this cycle trip: from the Romans who settled here and left Porta Nigra in Trier, to medieval little towns and places with gingerbread houses, vineyards and the spectacular Saar river bend. A tour that combines highlights of two rivers and a comfortable way of exploring them with your swimming hotel always there to meet you after an exciting cycling day.
