Moselle and Saar by bike and ship

Cycle along the neat Saar-bike trail. Discover Saarburg, the "Little Venice" of the Saar and visit the castle and the old Saar-loop before reaching the Moselle with the historical Roman town Treves. You should not miss out on a visit of the Roman thermal baths, the Porta Nigra and the historical town centre. The Moselle-bike trail will impress you. You will roll along green vineyards and visit well-known places along the Moselle like Traben-Trarbach, Zell and Bernkastel-Kues. Further highlights of your guided tour will be impressive passages on the ship's sundeck or a side trip to Burg Eltz, which will definitely not disappoint you! The last stage of your trip is Koblenz with the "Deutsche Eck".

MS Patria:
The MS Patria offers capacities for 68 guests in 34 air-conditioned cabins (it's not possible to open the windows) equipped with two single beds, shower and toilet. A cozy atmosphere and a friendly crew await you in the saloon and bar. You also have a partially covered sundeck where you can spend your time after the bike tours. The crew is an experienced team, supplying a familiar atmosphere on board.


1. day Arriving in Saarburg
Embarkment starts at 4 p.m. Captain and crew give you a warm welcome at 6 p.m.
We recommend discovering the Old Town on your own. The small town is situated below the fortress of the Saarburg by the Saar. Vineyards and woods surround Saarburg. The Leukbach flows through it and established the basis for the early heydays of the local community life. "Little Venice" is how the ensemble of romantic rows of houses and small bridges crossing the creeks on the butter market was already referred to by the Berlin architect Schinkel.

2. day Saarburg - Saarschleife, Trier 40 km km
Your first bike tour starts afetr breakfast and leads you to the old Saar-loop. You can do a side trip to Wasserbillig in Luxembourg where the Sauer river flows into the Moselle. The ship will already be waiting for you in Trier. In Trier you can participate in a guided city tour organized by your tour guide. Here, you will have the unique chance to follow 2000 years of history step by step. Visit the Porta Nigra, a Roman town gate of gigantic size, the basilica, the Roman thermal baths or the electoral palace.

3. day Trier - Mehring 25 - 35 km
In a comfortable pace, you cycle to Mehring on the even Moselle bike trail. There, on an acclivity above the Moselle, excavations of the Villa Rustica, a Roman manor, can be visited.

4. day Mehring - Bernkastel-Kues ca. 50 km
After breakfast, your route takes you to Neumagen-Dhron, the oldest winegrowing place by the Moselle. Marvel at the rock relief of the wine ship and at its beautiful remake. Later on you will cycle to Trittenheim, where a nature trail informs over the work of the winegrower, local grape varieties and winegrowing, and from there to Piesport with its worthwhile Roman wine press. The community, known as the biggest winegrowing establishment in the Moselle-Saar-Ruwer-region, is surrounded by vineyards, woods and meadows. Already the Romans came here to enjoy the stunning landscape with its natural prosperity. The famous winegrowing town Bernkastel-Kues will be reached after a short time of cycling through the vineyards. Neat small towns lie on both sides of the Moselle. Noble half-timbered houses seam the steep market place in Bernkastel. Enjoy the incomparable atmosphere of the picturesque Old Town full of history. In the evening a wine tasting gives you an impression of the famous wines of the region.

5. day Bernkastel-Kues - Zell 45 km
Today's route leads through the famous winegrowing area "Kröver Nacktarsch". You will be tempted to stop and taste the various wines. In Traben-Trarbach, it is time to take a relaxing break in order to explore the beautiful town. The next stop will be in Enkirch, whose half-timbered houses and narrow streets invite to walk around. You will not be back on your bikes for long before the next big winegrowing area comes up. The route leads past vines of the "Schwarze Katze" (black cat), into the middle of the small but beautiful town.

6. day Zell - Cochem 35 km
Behind a narrow curve in the course of the Moselle lies the small winegrowing town Bremm with its winding lanes. Here you are going to pass the steepest vineyard in Europe, the "Calmont". Another highlight of the day surely is Beilstein, whose heavenly townscape has served as the scenery for five movies. A perfect place for a nice break. Today's destination is Cochem. The perfectly restored Old Town and the impressive castle watching over the town make Cochem the most frequented town by the Moselle. Your ship is waiting for you by the bridge over the Moselle with a great view over town and castle.

7. day Cochem - Koblenz 27 km
After cycling through the valley for a few kilometres, you will reach Moselkern. Take a side trip by bike and foot from here to the famous castle of Burg Eltz. Full of impressions, you will continue through the Moselle valley to Alken. The remaining kilometers to Koblenz you cover on the MS Patria. Let your last evening fade out with a walk to "Deutsches Eck" where Moselle and Rhine meet, and along the Rhine river promenade in the beautiful Old Town of Koblenz.

8. day Departing from Koblenz
Your journey back home starts after breakfast.
