With Bike and Barge from Saarburg to Koblenz - MS PATRIA

Beautiful river valleys, vineyards and picturesque towns

Early bird bonus: Save 50€ per person when booking until 28 February 2022! The discount will be deducted retrospectively by our customer advisory team after the booking. This discount cannot be combined with other discounts.

The history of this region even goes back to the Roman Era, some 2.000 years ago. Beautiful timbered houses, vineyards, the Porta Nigra in Trier, the “German corner” (conjunction of Moselle and Rhine) in Koblenz and Saarburg (also known as “little Venice”) are but a few of the highlights during this trip. The Moselle, with a length of 544 km, is the Rhine’s longest tributary and it is also the second most important shipping route in Germany. The Saar, which has the greatest abundance of water and a length of 246 km, is the Moselle’s longest tributary. The quality of the cycle paths along this route is excellent. Most of the path along the Moselle is paved or asphalted and does not have any gradients of note. This makes the trip suitable even for relatively unpractised cyclists.
