Barge cruise along the Moselle and the Saar

What could provide a more pleasant break than a trip to the Saar and Moselle, two rivers which wind through  enchanting countryside, where castles on the hills guard the route and you can visit market squares surrounded by timbered houses? Is it any wonder that Moselle wine has built up such a good name? The journey through the Moselle valley  between Koblenz and Trier traverses some of Germany’s  most beautiful countryside. You will meet winegrowers and  bottlers on the way, but also cyclists from all around the world.
