Along the Moselle and the Saar rivers

As far as cycle touring destinations in Europe go, there are few better than the Moselle and Saar river valleys in Germany. During a cycling cruise you can find out and experience yourself. In one word: it is a “stunning” region, highlighted by an enchanting countryside, fairy tale castles, award-winning vineyards on impossibly steep slopes and historic medieval towns and villages.

The Rhine’s peaceful little sisters, the Moselle and Saar rivers, meandering from one picturesque village to the other, offer unsurpassed views of castles high on the hills, stone-clad fortresses, picture perfect wineries and much, much more. On a day to day basis, as you cycle through this magical region, you will visit culturally rich cities, will soak up the sights of untouched nature, will meet local winegrowers and bottlers and, importantly, will get the opportunity to relive the rich history of the region. It is without doubt a cycling cruise not to be missed! The cycle paths along the banks of the Moselle and Saar Rivers do not have any gradients of note and are asphalted or paved.

The Moselle, with a length of 544 km, is the Rhine’s longest tributary and is also the second most important shipping route in Germany, while the Saar, with a length of 246 km, is the Moselle’s longest tributary. The history of the region along the banks of the Moselle and Saar Rivers dates back to the Roman Era, some 2000 or so years ago. For guests on a cycling cruise there is so much to see…: beautiful timbered houses dating back to medieval times, vineyards, the Porta Nigra in Trier, built in Roman times, the oldest defensive structure in Germany, the “German Corner” at the confluence of the Moselle and Rhine rivers in Koblenz and Saarburg, widely referred to as “Little Venice”, are just a few of the highlights of this memorable trip.
