Important for the tour

Cycling route distances in the travel program are approximate.
On some days you can choose between a longer and a shorter cycling route. Please note that on the shorter routes you may not be able to visit all the highlights mentioned.
If you prefer not to cycle on a particular day, you’re welcome to stay on board and relax while the ship cruises to the next landing place.
The tour itinerary and route are subject to possible changes due to nautical, technical or meteorological reasons, or other unforeseen events.
On the arrival day, you can leave your luggage on board the ship from 11.00 am.
A cycling map and a GPS app are available for guests who wish to cycle individually and at their own pace. The tour guide is always available via cell phone in case of questions, breakdowns or emergencies.

Join us on a remarkable cycling holiday that guides you through the storied landscapes of the Rhine and Moselle rivers, beginning in the bustling metropolis of Amsterdam and culminating in the picturesque town of Cochem.

This tour offers a blend of physical activity and historical exploration, tracing the region’s rich tapestry from its Roman foundations to its contemporary status.

Your journey kicks off in the serene Dutch countryside, where iconic windmills and pastoral scenes provide a tranquil start. Crossing into Germany, the route takes you along the Rhine, through the industrial yet culturally vibrant cities of Ruhrort and Düsseldorf.

As you pedal further, the Rhine Valley reveals its romantic essence with storybook castles, stately mansions, and lush vineyards nestled on the slopes.

Throughout your cycling holiday, you’ll enjoy the comforts of a floating hotel—a ship that provides premium accommodations, delicious meals, and a place to unwind. Each morning, you’ll be greeted with a new vista, enjoy a hearty breakfast on board, and set off with a packed lunch for the day’s ride.

Whether you opt for a leisurely or challenging cycling route, or choose to relax on the ship, the choice is yours. The vessel comes equipped with rental bikes, and there’s room for your own bike if you prefer.

A team of professional, multilingual tour leaders will accompany you, offering insights into the local history and culture and enriching your experience with their knowledge.
