Radtour auf dem Radweg Deutsche Weinstraße in der Pfalz

The Best bike tours through river valleys of Rhineland‑Palatinate

Long-distance cycling in Rhineland‑Palatinate is a relaxed way to put the kilometres behind you, speeding through unspoilt scenery, with ruins of ancient cultures around you and regional specialities to look forward to. You can ride through river valleys carved deep into ancient rocks along the Rhine or Moselle Cycle Route, past steep vineyards, lofty castles and charming, historic little towns. If you want to discover different regions, you can combine multiple long-distance trails into a grand cycling tour. How about a detour from the Rhine Cycle Route along the Ahr or Nahe cycle trails?
