Pleasure and enjoyment take precedence over sporting ambition here. Europe's steepest vineyards can be found along the Moselle River. But taking the Moselle Cycle Route doesn’t involve having to master these. As most of the cycle route is away from road traffic, has asphalt surfacing and is relatively flat without gradients, even recreational cyclists can tackle it without difficulty.
And what could be better than rounding off an active tour through nature with some delicious refreshments? There are a multitude of excellent options directly on route for hungry and thirsty cyclists to stop off, enjoy good food and sample fine wines. Because exploring the Moselle Cycle Route always entails exploring the region’s top wines too!
Tip: The new Moselle Cycle Route audio tour app
