Beautiful cycling along the Saar and Mosel Rivers
Mosel and Saar by Bike and Boat

Tour Description: Self-guided

Travel by bicycle and ship: a unique concept, where a bike holiday and a journey on a comfortable ship are combined. Cycling cruises are ideal for those who like to cycle during the day and explore beautiful areas, without giving up a comfortable way of travelling. During our tours you don’t have to pack and un-pack your suitcases every day to travel from one beautiful place to the next!

What could provide a more pleasant break than a trip to the Saar and the Moselle, two rivers which wind through enchanting countryside, where castles on the hills guard the route and you can visit market squares surrounded by timbered houses? Is it any wonder that Moselle wine has built up such a good name? The journey through the Moselle valley between Koblenz and Trier traverses some of Germany’s most beautiful countryside. You will meet winegrowers and bottlers on the way, but also cyclists from all around the world.

The history of this region even goes back to the Roman Era, some 2,000 years ago. Beautiful timbered houses, vineyards, the Porta Nigra in Trier, the “German corner” (conjunction of Moselle and Rhine) in Koblenz and Saarburg (also known as “little Venice”) are but a few of the highlights during this trip.

The Moselle is the Rhine’s longest tributary and it is also the second most important shipping route in Germany. The Saar, which has the greatest abundance of water, is the Moselle’s longest tributary. 

This tour operates in two directions: from Saarburg to Koblenz or from Koblenz to Saarburg. Please note that this tour has a German-speaking crew. A guide fluent in English can be arranged for groups of 10 or more.
