Itinerary

Arrive early in the idyllic Ruwertal at the gates to Trier. You will stay in the middle of the vineyards in a beautiful hotel with its own vineyards.

Accompanied by vines, you roll through the Ruwer valley along the Moselle, where the old ferry tower of Schweich is located. Marvel at the small wine-growing village Mehring with the famous Villa Rustica, a ruin, that was in Roman times a magnificent country house. Stroll through Mehring's lovingly crafted so-called Moselle streets and don't be afraid to open the doors of vine-ranked wineries. In the afternoon you reach Neumagen-Dhron, the oldest wine village in Germany or Piesport, a nice little wine village with its nice cafes, wineries and wine taverns. Convince yourself of the good quality of Piesporter gold pottery.

Today discover Bernkastel-Kues, stroll through the beautiful market square, past the proud half-timbered houses and edu-cate yourself in the famous wine museum. Get information about wine cultivation on steep slopes, on the different varieties of all the work in the vineyard and in the cellar, wine storage, and of course the wine culture. After this worthwhile break you continue to cycle right on the banks of the Moselle to Zeltingen along the world-renowned vineyards Zeltinger Himmelreich, Schlossberg, Sonnenuhr and Deutschherrenberg. You will then cycle through the vineyards Kröver Nacktarsch to your winery in Burg or Reil close to Traben-Trarbach.

In the morning, you roll through the vineyards to Zeller Schwarze Katz. Marvel at the in Germany still unique bridge that connects Bullay with Alf. It crosses as steel structure the Mosel at double-level, above is the rail and down is the road. Discover the romantic village of Beilstein with its nickname "Rothenburg an der Mosel", stroll through the picturesque center of Cochem, visit the old imperial castle from the 11th Century or visit the 'Rieslingstub'n'. Take place between historic winery equipment or sit outside when the weather allows in vineyards courtyard with its shady roof of vine leaves. The delicately fruity Riesling from the famous Schiefer-Steillagen around Cochem transformed here into a fruity, mineral wine and offers delicious easy-drinking pleasure. With these impressions, you can quickly reach the charming wine village of Pommern and your vineyard where you can stay the night.

Your day begins with a side trip (4 km) to the medieval Eltz Castle, considered one of the most beautiful and best preserved castles in Germany. Wonderfully romantic and nestled in un-spoiled nature, it looks like a true fairy-tale castle, inviting and majestic at the same time. Take part in an informative tour of the castle. Then you will cycle back to the Moselle bike path and roll down to the historic wine town Kobern Gondorf. Visit here a terraced vineyard, because they have almost exclusively steep slopes. These are usually very rocky and therefore for the most part only buildable on more or less small terraces. On these steep slopes mainly grow Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes. Get first hand information from the winery on its work and its products. Afterwards, enjoy the last few kilometers cycling along the river. Take a short trip through the wine village Winningen, which is one of the most beautiful villages in Germany and look forward to a great end to the day in the city of Koblenz on the German Corner.

After breakfast your varied cycling holiday ends. From Koblenz you have very good train connections in all directions. For those who want to return to Trier, we recom-mend our quick return transfer service that will bring you with luggage and private bikes back to the start hotel in Koblenz.

Tour character

The quality of the bike tail is very good. There are practical no unpaved or poorly developed path. The route runs almost exclusively on paved roads and is very well signposted. The volume of traffic varies, but between Trier and Cochem there is almost always a separate bike trail on the right or left shore side, off the main road. Only during your last day you have to cycle a section on a wide bicycle lane next to the main road. Detailed information about which shore side is best to cycle on, you will receive together with the detailed travel documents two weeks prior to departure.

A Wonderful Time Biking Trier to Koblenz
The scenery, hotel accommodations, bikes, wine tastings, and luggage transportation were all top notch. We had a wonderful time and will be spreading the news on how booking with Ruchenwind was so smooth and efficient. Olga was wonderful to work with. Thank you so much.

Tolle Route, tolle Gegend, in die Jahre gekommene Unterkünfte
Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit, das Wetter hat so einiges dazu gegeben und die Route fast ausschließlich direkt an der Mosel entlang ist ein Traum. Die Orte müssen bald mal etwas tun wenn auch die nächste Generation noch angelockt werden soll. Das Weingut Lehnert-Veit hat schon damit angefangen und bietet uns die modernsten Zimmer auf der Reise. Weit hinter modern liegt das Schlosshotel Petry - auch wenn hier das Essen ganz hervorragend war. Alles in allem eine wunderschöne Reise und bei der Hotelauswahl können wir auch in Wirklichkeit gar nicht meckern. Es war immer das beste Haus am Platz.
