The countryside on both banks of the Mosel are splendid, the cool wines taste deliciously, the picturesque little towns have rich histories and the conditions for cycling are excellent indeed. Here you fine the perfect mix of ingedients for a fine bike and barge vacation.
This tour takes us through a wonderful, varying region. We follow the river Mosel, partly in Germany, partly in France and partly in Luxembourg, along the endless vineyards and the enchanting old cities like Cochem and Bernkastel. It goes without saying that we will taste the local wines whenever we can. Then, of course, there is Trier, the oldest city of Germany with the Porta Nigra dating from the first century after Christ. We will follow the river Saar and visit charming Saarburg, with the stunning waterfalls in the city center. We also cycle into Luxembourg and France with their welcoming villages, where the inhabitants are proud of their sweet, smooth wines and golden “Mirabellen” liqueur (plum liqueur). The city of Metz has a splendid cathedral.
