Boat and Bike Rhine and Neckar

Boat and bike Rhine and Neckar

Bike & Barge on Neckar & Rhine

The itinerary of this bike & barge tour on Germany’s oldest trade route – River Rhine – reads like an excursion into history: the Dome of Worms, Nibelungen Gate, the historic old town and castle ruin of Heidelberg, the intimidating fortification of Koblenz. Between all these places you cycle through lovely little historic villages with half-timbered houses, small alleys and then again past vineyards and idyllic river meadows. Enjoy a varied and hugely interesting cycle break with warm and welcoming climate.
