      The Moselle rises in the Vosges near Bussang, not far from the center of the village at an elevation of about 600 m. Take a moment to start your journey at the spring. Being aware of the origins of the culture along the Moselle and perhaps becoming aware of it will perhaps open you with a little reverence for the lifeline of this region and the signpost of your journey. The Mosel cycle path and its signposting starts at the former station of the small village and takes you on the first kilometers on a paved former railway line, which is easy to drive. Since you are in a low mountain range, there will also be a few meters to overcome. The stage is quite short with about 18 kilometers. You have to cover about 160 meters in altitude.

      This stage of the Mosel cycle path runs completely on the right, German Moselufer. However, since the Moselle always forms the border between the neighboring states, it is possible to look at Luxembourg. The well-developed bike path leads without gradients through the broad valley of the Upper Moselle. The landscape is increasingly dominated by vineyards and wineries. The stage destination Nittel offers the best conditions for completing today's bike tour. In one of the numerous restaurants on site can be a perfect end to the day with a glass of Elbling.

      The French town of Thionville in Lorraine is the starting point of the German Mosel cycle path, which is continuously expanded and signposted from here. On former towpaths and side roads, the start stage usually leads directly to the river border in the border triangle Germany-France-Luxembourg to Perl, where the Moselle forms the border with Luxembourg. A bridge leads over to the well-known town of Schengen, in front of which the eponymous agreement to abolish European border controls was signed.

      This is the last full stage before the German border and the transition to the improved developed and signposted Moselle cycle path. From Metz the bike path leads close to the water. Again and again there is the opportunity to enjoy France not only scenic, but also culinary. As usual along the Mosel, you will pass numerous churches and small castles. Some of them, e.g. the Château de Pepinville, and certainly others, is worth exploring. Via Thury, Mondelange and Thionville you cycle straight to the German-French border.

      In the regenerating presence of nature, we continue via Les Turbines to Nancy. With a population of 100,000, Nancy offers a wide selection of cozy bistros, restaurants and attractions. The cityscape with its many historic buildings is a real pleasure. The picturesque Place Stanislas, the Königsplatz with its two fountains, invites you to linger. When walking through the winding streets of the city, you should definitely visit the historic city gate with its two mighty towers with the Lorraine Cross.

      Looking forward to 2018 and the Moselle tour - but from Koblenz upriver to the source in the Vosges and back perhaps through the Alsace and the upper Rhine Valley !?

      From Épinal it goes to Golbey and directly on the Moselle on to Chavelot. Shortly after Chavelot you will reach the Lorraine region. On the way to Vincey, you'll see an old factory building that once had a weaving mill. Finished goods were then transported by water. In Bainville-aux-Miroirs begins the nature reserve La Moselle Sauvage. Here, nature along the Mosel can unfold freely. Right and left of the bike path you will find wild plants and colorful flowers. With a little luck, you might spot beaver or rare birds here.

      It goes on a little-traveled road on Éloyes to Épinal. On this stage you have to overcome a few vertical meters again, but from Épinal the landscape changes. With the Vosges in the back you can look forward to a wide and open terrain and less altitude. Èpinal, the capital of the French department of Vosges, has a beautiful old town and is well suited for a visit and an overnight stay. The local museum displays the first historical predecessors of classic comics in a large collection.

      The last stage leads along the left bank of the Moselle from Löf to shortly before Koblenz. On the last kilometers of the Mosel cycle path through the region Terrassenmosel, some typical Mosellan wine places wait to be discovered by you. Thus, in Kobern-Gondorf the medieval market square and probably the oldest German half-timbered building from the year 1320 can be admired. There are even more pretty half-timbered houses in the wine town of Winningen, which is one of the most beautiful places in Germany. At the Deutsches Eck, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine, the Mosel cycle path ends. You have reached your destination and the city of Koblenz with its winding streets, squares, museums, cozy restaurants and the many attractions complete the bike ride perfectly.

      On this stage, you can look forward to interesting castles and palaces. The stage starts with a view of the majestic Reichsburg. About Klotten and Pommern it goes to the historic place Treis-Karden.From Moselkern you can make a trip to the castle Eltz, one of the most beautiful castles in Germany. The main route of the Moselle cycle path leads over the bridge to Treis. If you do not have enough of castles and palaces, then you should still look at the Ehrenburg in Brodenbach. A one-hour hike takes you to the imposing 12th century castle.

      The next stage starts at the historic railway bridge in Bullay. Face the challenge and climb the steepest vineyard in Europe on the "Calmont via ferrata". But you will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful views over the Mosel valley. The bike tour continues along the idyllic wine villages of Ediger-Eller, Nehren and Senhals to Ellenz-Poltersdorf.
      On the other bank of the Moselle, which you can reach relaxed with the ferry, is Beilstein with its small streets and the famous half-timbered scenery. Via Ernst you finally reach the stage destination Cochem.
