European Riverboat Bike Tour

by Outings & Adventures

Partner: Outings & Adventures (OA)

Join OA on their return journey to the Moselle River and visit France, Luxembourg and Germany by riverboat and bike. Meanders along iconic water-front castles, half-timbered fairy-tale villages, old Roman outposts, and routes connecting some of the world’s most celebrated vineyards.


Details

The journey together starts in Metz, one of the last Roman city’s to fall to Atilla the Hun and ancestral home of the Merovingian Dynasty. Metz has great architecture from the centuries and a Gothic cathedral that took 300 years to build. Meeting up in the afternoon, welcome board reception kicks-off this bucket list adventure.

Follow the breadcrumbs of history. The Romans “civilized” this “barbaric” region bringing their culture and the first grapevines. Little did they know at the time of Julius Cesar that this river valley would blossom into a Riesling drinkers’ paradise. On both sides of the river, the precisely-tended vineyards hug the steep slopes.
