Experience the Saar with its French flair and industrial history and marvel at the famous Saar loop. When the Saar flows into the Moselle, the landscape also changes noticeably, because wine growing determines the picture more and more as you go on. Look forward to the winding Moselle cycle path, which takes you from the Roman city of Trier to all the famous Moselle locations. Discover Bernkastel-Kues, Traben-Trarbach and Cochem, taste the Moselle wines and stroll through the narrow streets of the many charming wine-growing villages before you enjoy the wide view over the magnificent Rhine Valley in Koblenz at the Deutsches Eck.

Saar loop in Saarland on the Saar Cycle Path

Day 1: Arrival in Saarbrücken

Stroll through Saarbrücken with its French flair, marvel at the fine confectionery shops, the St. Johann market with many pubs, bistros and restaurants, the old baroque houses and noble antique shops. An early arrival is worthwhile, the rental bikes are already at the hotel.

Overnight stay in Saarbrucken

 

Day 2: Saarbruecken - Mettlach, about 59 km

You cycle quickly on the Saar cycle path through the former coal mining area to Völklingen. You simply have to make a stopover here, because the “Völklingen Ironworks” is one of the 33 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Germany! A visit to the Völklingen Ironworks is like an adventure: deep into the dark corridors of the Möllerhalle and high up to the viewing platform at the blast furnace. Then follow the well-developed Saar cycle path through the beautiful Merzig region to the impressive Saar loop near Mettlach. Swap the bike for the walking shoes and walk up to the Cloef viewpoint. Only 30 minutes and the view of the Saar loop is simply breathtaking!

 

Day 3: Mettlach - Trier, about 42 km

Today you cycle leisurely along the Saar Cycle Path through a densely wooded area to Saarburg, where the castle towers majestically over the winding streets. Guided by the traces of the Romans, you cycle via Konz to Trier. Look forward to an individual tour of the historic city center, the Imperial Baths and the Porta Nigra.

 

Day 4: Trier - Piesport, about 46 km

There is a lot to see on the Moselle cycle path today: in Mehring the ruins of the Villa Rustica, in Trittenheim an educational wine trail that provides information about the working year of a vintner, local grape varieties and vine cultivation. And Neumagen-Dhron attracts the oldest wine village in Germany!

Overnight stay in Piesport

 

Day 5: Piesport - Traben-Trarbach, about 40 km

o Famous Moselle towns such as Bernkastel Kues and Traben-Trarbach and the well-known wine-growing region "Kröver Nacktarsch" crown today. Marvel at the colourful, varied half-timbered houses on the picture book market square in Bernkastel-Kues, and enjoy architectural treasures from Art Nouveau and the Belle Époque in Traben-Trarbach.

Overnight stay in Traben-Trarbach

 

Day 6: Traben-Trarbach - Cochem, about 56 km

Today you will discover Enkirch, a gem of Moselle half-timbered architecture, and Zell, the wine village with the "Zeller Schwarzen Katz". Take a worthwhile break in the small Beilstein, which proudly bears the nickname "Rothenburg an der Mosel", and look forward to Cochem with its picturesque center and the old Reichsburg.

 

Day 7: Cochem - Koblenz, about 49 km

Today, a detour to the medieval Eltz Castle is tempting, before the Moselle cycle path takes you to wine-growing villages worth seeing, such as Kobern-Gondorf and Winningen, and finally to the Deutsch sche Eck. Enjoy the wide view of the magnificent Rhine Valley and look forward to a nice evening in Koblenz.

 

Day 8: Departure from Koblenz

Your cycle tour ends today in the heart of Koblenz. Return journey on your own or return transfer in a minibus.

Bike tour SMR 51635 from 16.06. - 23.06.2012

Attn: Ms. Beate Eberl (our contact person before the trip) First of all, thank you very much for the preparation of this trip. We received the documents in good time and were able to prepare well for the trip. It was a PT tour and was organized by ***. We have not met any of these people. Everything - bicycle handover etc. - was conveyed by the hotel staff, but always competently! The accommodations were impeccable. Since we are rural, it would have been nice if the accommodations had been reserved in wine-growing villages rather than in larger towns, there would have been offers. Regarding the bikes: I'm attaching a picture with an "original - *** - bike". These bikes run well, but lack any comfort, i.e. suspension. We are used to something different from the "Mecklenburg tours"! Almost all cycle paths on the SMR - Tour have a solid surface. On the one hand, a lot of concrete slabs, each with uneven transverse grooves, then a lot of paving stones, often quite uneven, and finally, especially along tree-lined avenues, tar coverings, which are partly raised by tree roots. It wouldn't all be so bad if the bike were equipped with suspension (no longer an optional extra nowadays). The "bumping" all day was quite tedious, bike rental accordingly too high! Otherwise we spent a very nice week on the Saar and Moselle. Kind regards Hansgeorg Bührer If we stay healthy, we will spend the next bike tour on the North or Baltic Sea again!
