Cyclists love our region - discover it for yourself!

Cycling along the Rhine cycle path on the left bank of the river is a most enjoyable experience.
For the more athletic cyclists among you, a tour along the Rhine can be made more challenging by tackling ascents up the tributary valleys, where the roads wind upwards in serpentine curves to the Hunsrück mountains.
The “TalTotal” (“Pure Valley Feeling”) attraction: every last Sunday in June, the roads on both sides of the Rhine are car-free, and open to cyclists and rollerbladers!
And with plenty of stalls offering food and drink, you have the perfect excuse not to stay at home and cook! 

Circular tours

The Hunsrück mountains are calling ...

From Oberwesel, we start off along the Rhine river, past Loreley and St. Goar, Katz Castle, Rheinfels Castle and Maus Castle, to Hirzenach.
Past Bad-Salzig and the “Enemy Brothers” (Liebenstein Castle and Sterrenberg Castle), we reach Boppard.
Here, trains leave hourly on the steepest non-rack-railway track over the Hunsrück heights to Emmelshausen.
Via the Schinderhannes cycle path, we reach Pfalzfeld. Following a short rest in the old railway station, we leave the Schinderhannes cycle path and follow the trail via Nenzhäuser Hof through the woods to Damscheid.
We return to Oberwesel through Niederbachtal valley.

To Bingen for coffee

Athletic cyclists take 3 hours for this tour, but you can manage it in an afternoon!
It’s roughly 20km from Oberwesel to Naheeck near Bingen.  Follow the B9 to Bacharach and then take the old towpath to Bingen.
