Tour map of the Rhine Cycle Path

Day 1: Arrival in Mainz

Arrive on your own. Not only the Roman-Germanic Central Museum, the Gutenberg Museum, the Imperial Cathedral and the Electoral Palace are worth a long visit.

Overnight stay in Mainz

Day 2: Mainz - Ruedesheim, about 35-49 km

The beautiful first cycle route takes you through gentle vineyards and well-known wine-growing villages. Here the Rhine still flows comfortably and expands its bed to a width of up to 800 m! You can plan worthwhile detours (+ 14 km) to the half-timbered town of Eltville and to Eberbach Abbey. In Rüdesheim you should take the opportunity to taste wine, stroll through the world-famous Drosselgasse or take a relaxing ride on the cable car to the Niederwald monument.

Overnight stay in Ruedesheim

Day 3: Ruedesheim - St Goar, about 34 km

Magnificent castles greet you along the way. And of course you should climb the Loreley. A hiking trail leads up and gives you a beautiful view of the narrowest point in the romantic Rhine Valley.

Overnight stay in St Goar

Day 4: St Goar - Koblenz, about 36 km

The route continues in the narrow Rhine valley to Boppard. It's turbulent here, but you can also take the chairlift to the Four Lakes View and escape to the wooded, quiet heights. Or visit the well-preserved Marksburg Castle and Stolzenfels Castle on the way to the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz.

Overnight stay in Koblenz

Day 5: Koblenz - Bad Godesberg, about 61 km

Cozy health resorts and inviting wine villages are vying for your visit today. Thermal baths and beer gardens also want to spoil the cyclists. Or give your bike a break and enjoy a ride on the Rhine boat from the water. Everything is possible for you between Koblenz and Bad Godesberg!

Overnight stay in Bad Godesberg

Day 6: Bad Godesberg - Cologne, about 43 km

Bonn is on your way and tempts you to take a long tour before the Cologne Cathedral comes into view. Today's stage is not too long, so you will reach your hotel in the city center early and can still admire the diverse sights of Cologne without any worries.

Overnight stay in Cologne

Day 7: Departure from Cologne

After a week in the Rhine Valley, this beautiful journey ends. You are also welcome to book a few extra nights before you start your journey home. Otherwise departure on your own or return transfer.

Fantastic days

Every day we had to tell ourselves how beautiful it was. Everything was right, the nature, the route, the nice people, the nice hotel rooms, the good food. Even the weather cooperated and the bikes were great, they never let us down.
