Cycling alongside the Mosel is cycling to the Romans, cycling in a wonderful winelands and cycling between fortresses and castles. The Romans almost left their constructional marks everywhere, also at the river Mosel. Besides Trier that inherited the Porta Nigra, the basilica of Constantin, the termal springs, the amphitheatre and the Roman bridge other villages at the Mosel can come up with Roman cultural heritage.
Aside the Mosel is also known for its winelands and Riesling. That’s why the cycling from Trier to Traben-Tarbach is not only a sporty undertaking but also a cultural and culinary pleasure. For example, Neumagen is said to be the oldest wine town of Germany. The steepest vineyard of the region is close to the pitoresque wine town Ediger-Eller which also is said to have the highest half-timbered house of the region.
Adventurers and romanticists will also get their money worth. Numerous fortresses, castles and so on are decorate the Mosel cycle path. The castle Eltz, one of the best preserved medieval ramparts of Germany is presumably also one of the most known ones. Moreover the castle Thurant of Alken, the castle of Cochem, the castle Ehrenbreitstein of Koblenz or casle von der Leyen are worth a visit.
Not to forget the Deutsche Eck of Koblenz, the point where Mosel and Rhein are matching and merging.
Therefore: on your saddle and get started!
