This beautiful circular tour is located in the Moselle region and also takes you to the rivers Saar and Sauer. Roman history and wine culture are of course the big themes, plus you'll get to know a piece of Luxembourg and have a lot of fun on a ride on the chairlift in Saarburg. This cycle tour along the Moselle, Saar & Sûre is also suitable for the inexperienced.
