On this six-day trip you will travel through the romantic Middle Rhine region at a brisk pace. Along the route lined with secluded vineyards you will find small towns worth seeing such as the half-timbered town of Eltville with its magical rose splendor, Rüdesheim with the world-famous Drosselgasse and Oberwesel, the city of towers and wine. There are always opportunities to view the wonderful landscape from above, for example on a hike to the legendary Loreley or taking the chairlift in Boppard up to the Vierseenblick. Mild climate and Rhenish charm are included.

Arrive on time today Mainz! Not only the Roman-Germanic Central Museum, the Gutenberg Museum, the Imperial Cathedral and the Electoral Palace are worth an extensive visit.

Overnight place: Mainz

The beautiful first cycle route takes you through the gentle vineyard slopes and well-known wine-growing towns of the Rheingau. Here the Rhine still flows leisurely, forming small romantic islands and expanding its bed to a width of up to 800 m! Visit the half-timbered town of Eltville, which is worth seeing, and plan a detour (+ 14 km) to Eberbach Monastery. In Rüdesheim you should take the opportunity to stroll through the world-famous Drosselgasse or take a relaxed ride on the cable car up to the Niederwald Monument. From Rüdesheim to Bingen you use the Rhine ferry and then continue on the well-developed cycle path to Bacharach. In these 16 km alone you will pass the Mouse Tower, the Rheinstein and Reichenstein castles as well as Sooneck and Hohneck castles and also the Fürstenberg ruins. Everywhere is worth a stop and in Bacharach you should climb the city wall before finally rolling into Oberwesel.

Overnight place: Oberwesel

You will reach St. Goar in the morning and can climb the Loreley there. A hiking trail leads up and gives you a beautiful view of the narrowest point in the romantic Rhine Valley. This is the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley and the worthwhile visitor center on the Loreley offers interesting insights into the history, nature and culture of the region as well as the myth of the Loreley. Back on the shore, the cycle path then continues to Boppard. It's turbulent here, but you can also take the chairlift to the Vierseenblick to escape to the wooded, quiet heights and enjoy the view of the Rhine Valley again. Or visit the well-preserved Marksburg Castle and Stolzenfels Castle on the way to the Deutsches Eck in Koblenz, where you can end the day.

Overnight place: Koblenz

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 piece on the Rhine boat from the water. Everything is possible for you between Koblenz and Bad Honnef! History buffs should pay a visit to the "Bridge of Remagen" museum shortly before the stage destination, before taking a leisurely stroll through Bad Honnef's pedestrian zone. Enjoy nice cafes and pretty half-timbered houses here.

In 2024 you will spend the night in Bonn so that you continue your journey from Bad Honnef via Bad Godesberg and past the Drachenfelsen to Bonn.

Overnight place: Bonn

Today you roll past Bad Godesberg at the foot of the Siebengebirge. Marvel at the Drachenfelsen, which towers 250 m above the Rhine, and take an exciting ride to the summit on the Drachenfelsbahn, the oldest cog railway in Germany. The old federal capital of Bonn is also on your way and tempts you to take an extensive tour before the Cologne Cathedral comes into view. Today's stage is not too long, so you can reach your hotel in the city center early and admire the diverse sights of Cologne without any worries.

In 2024 you will cycle from Bonn to Cologne and still have time to admire the many sights there.

Overnight place: Cologne
