A comprehensive network of gentle, mostly tarmac cycling routes lets you explore this beautiful landscape in all its manifestations, from the banks of the Mosel river to vineyards, woods and forests. For those looking for something a little more challenging, a mountain bike network climbing up to several thousand metres offers both beginners and seasoned riders a serious amount of fun – and fantastic views over the Mosel valley. For families, the famous 311 km Mosel cycle path stretches from Metz in France to Koblenz in Germany and goes directly past Bernkastel-Kues.
Some stretches of the route are served by special cyclist buses.
We’ll be happy to give you information and advice about cycling in the area.
Or call in at the Mosel-Gäste-Zentrum tourist office in Bernkastel-Kues itself.
With its rich variety of detours, landscapes and views, the Maare Mosel cycle path is the Central Mosel region’s most popular route for bike tours. Laid out along a former railway line, this quiet 55km route takes you from the town of Daun, through the Eifel region and the town of Wittlich, all the way to Bernkastel-Kues. Discover a landscape of extinct volcanoes, shallow crater lakes, vineyards as far as the eye can see and traditional winemaking villages. The well-signposted tarmac route has no steep climbs, making it ideal for leisurely family rides.
From April to November, you can also take advantage of the special cyclist bus. And after your ride, the Doctor Weinstube’s rooms and restaurant provide the perfect place to relax and refuel.

Whether you fancy a gentle ride through the countryside or something a little more ‘sportif’, the Mosel’s winegrowing landscape has something for all types of cyclist. And you don’t even have to bring your own bike.
We’ll be happy to organise suitable bikes for you. So you don’t have to worry about planning your ride in advance. Just turn up and you’re good to go!
