The Tour

Moselle cycle path and Lorelei

Picturesque vineyards, castles, palaces and fortresses line the Moselle cycle path. Roman ruins, quaint half-timbered houses and countless wineries invite you to visit. From Koblenz, you’ll be able to enjoy a boat trip to the Lorelei rock, which has inspired countless folk songs and tales, before comfortably cycling back along the Rhine. The bike paths are well-developed and easy to cycle even for inexperienced cyclists.
