Day 1 (Sat):  Embarkation: Koblenz

The MS Patria awaits you in Koblenz where the crew will welcome you on board from 4pm. Your first night will be spent in this fascinating and historic city, an important defensive and economic centre for centuries. Highlights include the old castle of Ehrenbreitstein which dominates the right bank of the Rhine, the 12th century Alte Burg Castle and old Koblenz town.

Day 2 (Sun): Koblenz – Alken | Alken – Moselkern – Cochem (Approx. 29 km/18 mi.)
Your tour starts this morning as the MS Patria sails to Alken where, following the distribution of bicycles, you will start pedalling via Moselkern to Cochem, your destination for the day. Cochem is a lovely little town that features historical half-timbered-houses, a picturesque old town and Reichsburg Castle.

Day 3 (Mon): Cochem – Beilstein – Zell on the Moselle (Approx. 39 km/24 mi.)
After breakfast you will cycle to Beilstein, one of the best preserved historical villages along the length of the Moselle. Towering above the village, which you will have the opportunity to explore, are the ruins of Castle Metternich. After leaving Beilsten you will pass Europe’s steepest vineyard – with slopes between 50 and 55 degrees – at Bremmer Calmont. Today’s tour ends in the wine village of Zell. In the evening you will have the chance to visit a local winegrowers place and enjoy a wine tasting with the famous Moselle wines (excursion, optional, bookable on board).

Day 4 (Tue): Zell on the Moselle – Bernkastel-Kues (Approx. 43 km/26 mi.)
Today you will cycle from Zell to the romantic village of Traben-Trarbach, located on the left bank of the Moselle and famous for its Jugendstil (art nouveau) architectural style. From there you pass through the wine city of Kröv – famous for producing the popular Kröver wine – to Bernkastel-Kues, your destination for the night. The grand half-timbered houses that surround Bernkastel-Kues’s market place date back to the Middle Ages and are a photographer’s delight. You will reach the ship in Kues after a tour through town. 

Day 5 (Wed): Bernkastel-Kues –Piesport – Mehring (Approx. 47 km/29 mi.)
Today’s cycle tour is all about the history of wine growing along the Moselle. After breakfast you will cycle to Piesport, the oldest winegrowing community along the Moselle where, if you are interested, you can take part in an optional excursion (bookable on board) of a guided tour to historic Roman cellars and vineyards. Later in the morning you will cycle to Neumagen-Dhron, widely recognised as the oldest wine growing city in Germany. After the lunch break the tour continues to Mehring, another village famous for its fine white wine, where your floating hotel the MS Patria will be waiting for you.

Day 6 (Thu): Mehring – Trier (Approx. 26-29 km/16-18 mi.)
You will cycle via Pfalzel to Trier, where the ship is waiting for you. In the afternoon you can explore the city in a special kind of way. Book a city walk with a “traditional Roman”. Trier is undoubtedly the historic highlight of the tour. A walk through the 16 BC-founded Trier is an overwhelming journey through the millennia, with no other place in Germany able to give you a better chance to experience the time of the Romans. Highlights include impressive structures such as the Porta Nigra, the Konstantin Basilica and the Roman Amphitheatre.

Day 7 (Fri): Trier –  Wasserbillig – Saarburg (Approx. 38 km/23 mi.)
Today you will be cycling along the river from Trier via Wasserbillig in Luxembourg to Saarburg, also called “little Venice”. In its center you will find a waterfall of 20 meters deep.

Day 8 (Sat): Saarburg
After breakfast: disembarkation and end of tour.
