Itinerary

You start your trip in Trier, Germany’s oldest city. Trier is built on the riverbanks in the midst of lush vineyards. Don’t miss the famous Roman amphitheatre, the Imperial Baths, the Porta Nigra, an impressive city gate, the Constantine Basilica, the medieval city walls and all the other historical sights! Let 2000 years of history come alive on a walk around the town. You should definitely spend the evening in one of the traditional wine bars and taste the famous Riesling Wine, while enjoying the historical atmosphere.

Today you firstly cycle along curvy trails right and left of the Mosel, on old railway tracks, past ancient Roman settlements and through wine making towns like Longuich, Köwerich and Leiwen. Passing further small wine towns you reach today’s destination, the former Frankish settlement Trittenheim. The city is built on a kind of narrow peninsula in a Mosel Loop. Crossing one of the oldest bridges along the Mosel you can reach the other side of the river and admire the old ferry towers. Also worth a visit is the Laurentius Chapel dated back to 1583 and the Eselstratt menhir, a relict of megalithic culture in the vineyards above town. From here you have an amazing view over the Mosel valley. You spend the night in Trittenheim, Neumagen-Dhron or Piesport.

The loops of the Mosel get narrower as it winds between the Eifel and Hunsrück mountain ranges. You pass Germany’s oldest wine making town, Neumagen-Dhron and reach Piesport, where you can visit the well-restored 4th century Roman wine pressing facility. Via Wintrich, Brauneberg and Mülheim you reach the wine town Bernkastel-Kues. Don’t miss the cobble stone market square surrounded by truss houses, which offers a splendid view of ruined castle Landshut. In Zeltingen you can see impressive buildings of the Mosel Country Baroque. You spend the night in Zeltingen or in Bernkastel-Kues.

Wine lovers will particularly enjoy today’s tour. Numerous lush vineyards suggest a wine tasting session. Travelling on the Mosel bke trail you pass quirky wine making towns before reaching Enkirch, a treasure of local truss architecture. Later you reach the Mosel loop in Zell, the so-called “Zeller Hamm”. The 900-year-old castle Marienburg towers on a hill above the Mosel valley. You spend the night in Zell, one of the largest wine making communities in the area with approx. 6 millions of vines and former Roman settlement.

Via Bullay, a former Roman settlement, you reach Bremm, one of the highlights of the tour. The town is situated in a curve of the river and boasts colourful town houses and narrow, hidden alleys, as well as an impressive view of Europe’s steepest vineyard, the Calmont. The summit offers a breathtaking view over the Mosel valley. The “Bremmer Hamm” ends here and gives way to the “Cochemer Krampen” region. Via Beilstein you cycle to  Cochem, one of the main towns along the Mosel and famous for its historical town centre, as well as impressive Reichsburg castle, anexemplary Gothic Revival style castle. You stay in Treis-Karden or surroundings.

Today the bike trail takes you directly alongside the Mosel to Moselkern. A side trip to close by Castle Eltz, a fairy tail castle, is highly recommended here. The medieval town of Kobern-Gondorf invites you for a visit. Between the Mosel and steep vineyards you continue to Koblenz, the last stop on your trip. The Mosel joins the Rhine here. Romans, as well as Franconians and the French left their mark. See some of the many historical sights and breath the air of history on an evening walk through the picturesque town centre.

The route

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.

Mosel Radtour Trier-Koblenz
Nach unserer Mosel-Radtour ein paar Anmerkungen zur Organisation dieser Tour. Was war gut, was hat uns nicht so gut gefallen und was war ärgerlich. Es war eine inhaltlich schöne Tour, die bereitgestellten Unterlagen waren übersichtlich und hilfreich. Der Gepäcktransport war pünktlich und hat einwandfrei geklappt. Auch bei den Unterkünften gab es keine Mängel, sie waren sauber, hatten gute Betten und es gab jeweils ein umfangreiches, tolles Frühstück. Allerdings entsprachen aus unserer Sicht bis auf 2 Hotels nicht der gebuchten Kat. A als komfortable Mittelklassehotels, sondern eher der Kat. B als gute Gasthöfe und Hotels. Preis/Leistung stimmt aus unserer Sicht hier nicht. Als Endtäuschung empfanden wir die "hochwertigen" Kettler-Räder. Hier hatten wir in den zurückliegenden Jahren ganz andere, nämlich sehr positive Erfahrungen gemacht. Es fehlte scheinbar an jeglicher Pflege an den Rädern. 1. Fahrradständer passt nicht zum Rad, zu kurz. Taschen ran, Rad fällt um. 2. Tachoanzeige gleich Glücksspiel. Geht, geht nicht. Geht, geht nicht. Usw. 3. Sport-Sattel am Tourenrad aus unserer Sicht nicht besonders gut bzw. sinnvoll. Sattel war sehr schmal, mein Hintern tut immer noch weh. 4. Lenker nicht höhenverstellbar. Während der ganzen Fahrt lag man abgestützt auf dem Lenker. Auf Dauer schmerzen an Armen und Schulter. Hände schlafen ein. 5. Gangschaltung vorderer Kranz, die Anzeige ist defekt. Seht immer auf 1. 6. Gangschaltung vorderer Kranz, Schaltung unpräzise und hakelt bis es umspringt. 7. Gangschaltung hinterer Kranz, Schaltung unpräzise und hakelt bis es umspringt. Das muss nicht sein und macht das Image kaputt, hier ist doch Nachholbedarf. Und es ist nicht nur das eine Rad betroffen gewesen, sondern bis auf Punkt 5 trifft es auf beide Räder zu. Das weist auf mangelnden Service vor der Übergabe hin. Für unsere nächste Tour wünschen wir uns im nächsten Jahr wieder Räder direkt von "Rückenwind". Mit diesen Rädern waren wir immer zufrieden. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Wilfried Grote
