      Your last stage leads along the left bank of the Moselle from Löf to shortly before Koblenz. On the last kilometers through the region Terrassenmosel there are still some typical Moselle wine villages waiting 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: The city of Koblenz with its winding streets, squares, museums, cozy restaurants and the many sights completes this extraordinary bike ride perfectly.

      This stage of the Mosel cycle path runs completely on the right, German Moselufer. However, as 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 you can end 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 official start stage usually takes you directly to 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 better 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 everywhere along the Moselle, you will pass numerous churches and small castles. Some of them, such as the Château de Pepinville, and certainly others, are worth exploring. Via Thury, Mondelange and Thionville you cycle straight to the German-French border.

      After Pagny-sur-Moselle, Jouy-aux-Arches approaches. The Roman aqueduct, which even towers over a few houses, immediately catches your eye. After only 14 more kilometers, today's stage destination Metz is reached. The impressive Saint-Étienne Cathedral and numerous other small and large buildings from Roman times to the present can be discovered on a tour of the city. Metz is also ideal as an alternative starting point for a bike tour on the Mosel bike path.
