Discover some of Germany’s greatest riverside scenery, cycling along the Saar and Moselle rivers from Saarbrücken to Koblenz. Make your way through a landscape steeped in history and culture, from the French-influenced Saar Valley to the fertile wine-growing region of the Moselle Valley.
An easy and beguiling riverside cycling holiday from Saarbrücken, a German town with a distinctly french flavour, to Koblenz where the Moselle flows into the might Rhine.
Riverbank cycle paths lead you along a valley laden with vineyards, Riesling grapes ripening in the sunshine. Charming medieval towns, comprising of pretty squares and half-timbered houses line the route, inviting you to stop for a break. Each evening you’ll stay in one of these pretty little places where there will be plenty of opportunities to taste the wonderful wines for which this region is famous.
Highlights include the natural wonder of the Saar Loop, the historic splendour of Trier and the delightful villages of Piesport, Bernkastel-Kues and Cochem. Of course the main delight is pedalling alongside the river through sublime scenery.
This is a laid-back cycling trip, travelling along flat terrain on well-maintained cycle paths beside the Saar and Moselle rivers. This tour is suitable for anyone with a basic fitness level.
