Again and again, beautiful views into the Moselle valley, in charming alternation with wide Hunsrück heights.

A somewhat more demanding MTB tour with climbs from the Mosel towards Hunsrück alternating with beautiful descents through Mosel valleys. The technical demands are average and no problem for somewhat trained bikers with a penchant for metres in altitude (1430 m). Also ideal for e-bikes.
