On the river Moselle with the MS Flora - that’s a somewhat different way to experience this holiday region beloved for generations. Ancient Roman history, medieval townscapes and the omnipresent viticulture on this regions’ typical steep slopes shape the foundation of this tourist destination, which seems to be constantly reinventing itself.

This cycle tour along Moselle river on the MS Flora is perfectly suitable for untrained cyclists, your starting point is Merzig.
