8 DAYS Cycling along the Vineyards on the Moselle Cycle Route from the French border to Trier.

The scenery along the Moselle river is characterised by sunny vineyards, steep hillsides, picturesque wine villages and romantic towns. The Moselle cycle route follows the course of the river, offering not only beautiful panoramas but is also almost climb-free. The international Moselle Cycle Route starts in France reaching Germany in Perl. Near Trier, where the Saar flows into the Moselle, it meets the Saar Cycle Route. Trier is Germany's oldest town and a great place to explore Roman history. The route then follows the course of the Moselle downriver towards Koblenz, through remarkable vineyard scenery with many cultural treasures to explore.
