Trier was founded in 16 BC : Enjoy Porta Nigra, Electoral Price Palais, Emperor’s Thermal Spa, Roman aula or the amphitheatre.
Always on the river edge, past Schweich (old ferry tower), you encounter again and again monuments of the Roman past (villa Rustika, Roman water pipelines, Roman boat, Roman winepress). Then you cycle through Trittenheimer Moselle bend and reach Bernkstel-Kues (old town with many half-timbered houses, first settlements already during Early-Stone-Age, Moselle wine museum).
Your tour leads you to Traben Trarbach, centre of art-nouveau. On your way to Enkirch we recommend a wine tasting in a traditional pub.
The last 6 km you cycle on the edge of Moselle to German Corner (joining of the rivers Moselle and Rhine) in the centre of Koblenz (fortress Ehrenbreitstein, Prince-Electoral castle, Moselle and Rhine promenade, lively old town).
You cycle on very good cycle paths. The Moselle cycle path follows mostly flat metalled roads. This cycle tour is perfectly suitable for first-timer. Moreover you can stay on board any day.
