Planned by Venn-Eifel-Mosel-Runde
You start your journey on the Venn-Eifel-Mosel-Runde in the lively city of Trier on the Römerbrücke, the oldest bridge in Germany. You follow the Moselle to Pfalzel, the historic district of Trier with its famous ramparts and the oldest inhabited stone house in Germany.At the confluence of the Kyll you leave the Mosel and turn into Kylltal. Shortly thereafter, part of the bike path is expected to end in late 2020. Fortunately, Deutsche Bahn has set up an hourly free shuttle bus between the Ehranger Mühle bus stop and the Kordel train station. The bus ride was added as an off-grid section. Further information can be found here: bauprojekte.deutschebahn.com/media/projects/7256/docs/HZ_kuckuckslay-tunnel-wegefuehrung-v3.pdfFrom Kordel the bike path leads through the wildly romantic Kylltal and follows the countless meanders of the river. Small, pretty villages are on your way, such as Hüttingen with its small waterfall in the middle of the village.On the stage, you will always expect smaller and larger slopes. So also just before your waypoint. After the climb you have but from the highest point of a beautiful panoramic view of the hilly landscape and a view of the collegiate church Kyllburg.In Kyllburg your first stage ends and you will find inns as well as a campsite for the overnight stay. The outdoor swimming pool, which lies idyllically in a Kyll loop, provides for a refreshing dip.
