Arrival in Koblenz
The heart of the city is situated at the confluence of Moselle River and Rhine River. You should schedule plenty of time for a first shopping tour.
Bike tour through the Upper Middle Rhine Valley
After breakfast you start your holiday with a glorious boat trip on the Rhine River to St. Goarshausen. The „Loreley“ is a slate rock in Upper Middle Rhine Valley UNESCO World Heritage site but also the name of a mermaid on this rock. According to a legend of the 19th century, this mermaid combed her golden hair and attracted many skippers with her singing. Those men didn´t respect the dangerous current anymore, so that the ships were wrecked at the cliffs. You cycle back to your accommodation via the towns Boppard and Rhens. Thereby you pass few castles and palaces which are situated high above the Rhine River.
Cycle trip through the Lahn valley
Today you take the train to Nassau at Lahn. Your route takes you alongside the Lahn River to Bad Ems, where the Romans have also left their traces. Enjoy and relax in the Emser thermal spa. Soon you reach Lahnstein where the Lahn River flows into the Rhine River. Cycle the last section alongside this river until you reach your accommodation. Castles and palaces are also not missing on your way to Coblenz this day.
