Starting in a mountain range in France and running north to the western border of Germany’s Rhine River, the Mosel River Valley is rich in Roman and medieval influences, seen in its many spas, vineyards, and architecture. Sleepy, peaceful villages dot the river, and you’ll witness the “good life” as you sample the fruits of the largest wine growing region in Germany. The Mosel can also claim one of Germany’s best-preserved castles, Burg Eltz, its construction spanning more than 500 years.
The Mosel River is often ranked among the best cycling in Europe. Paved, mostly flat, and very scenic dedicated bicycle paths traverse meadows and pass through historic towns. The cycling season is long: from early spring to late fall. River breezes cool summer heat, and the slate hills lining the valley hold the sun’s warmth during spring and fall.
Numerous vineyards on both sides of the river and breathtaking natural landscapes will constantly accompany you and deliver a delightful cycling tour. On this bike trip you follow a more than 2000-year-old Roman history, in the true sense of the word.
