You leave Philippsheim and find yourself right back in the country. The Kyll describes wide loops through the landscape on its way to Trier.On the last stage, the Kyll cycle path trumps again with nature experiences and highlights.The old train station in Speicher was built from the typical Eifel sandstone and is always worth a break. In general, it is not difficult to find good places to take a break here.The next castle that comes into view is the Ramstein ruin. It can be viewed after registration. There is also a hotel with an attached restaurant.Shortly before it flows into the Moselle, there is currently (as of February 2021) a line closure between Kordel and Trier-Ehrang until the end of 2021. Therefore, the tour includes an off-grid section at this point. But you can switch to the road on the other bank. There is also a shuttle bus between the two train stations from April to October.Whatever you decide, at Pfalzel you finally reach the confluence of the Kyll into the Moselle. But the tour doesn't end there. You follow the Moselle for a while and can already admire the mighty city of Trier on the other bank.The oldest bridge in Germany, the Römerbrücke, finally brings you over to the city. Your journey on the Kyll cycle path ends there. The discoveries don't have to be over here, on the contrary. There is a lot to experience and see in Trier. It would be a real shame to get on the train or continue cycling before you have seen the famous old town around the Porta Nigra.
