The Moselle Cycle Path 2013
The Moselle Valley is famous for its mild climate and its excellent wines. The river which originates in the Vosges Mountains, flows through Lorraine, skirts Luxembourg and then meanders its way between the Eifel and Hunsrück regions towards the Rhine. Under the vineyards, pretty little villages and towns cling to the slopes and are often presided over by impressive castles and fortresses. Around Cochem, the Reichsburg, Burg Eltz and the double-castle of Thurant dominate the Moselle Valley and transport visitors back to the Middle Ages. Famous towns such as Metz or the Roman town of Treves are situated on the Moselle and those cycling along the good-quality cycle paths will be unable to tear themselves away from the romantic idyll of castles and timber-framed houses or deny themselves a good glass of Moselle, Saar or Ruwer wine in one of the cosy wine taverns.
