The cycle track

On this route you will be impressed by the vast number of castles and palaces along the Rhine valley, which is steeped in legends. You will also pass the world-famous “Loreley” rock. This part of the Rhine valley is a “wine valley” as well. On both sides enormous vineyards rise up the steep slate slopes. The Rhine cycling trail has a total length of 1.300 kilometres, but the section from Mainz to Koblenz, which is 101 kilometres long, is the most attractive one without any important gradients.

 Transport link

Starting in Bad Ems you can cycle about 14 kilometres along the » Lahnradweg (Lahn cycling trail) to reach the Rhine cycling trail in Lahnstein or you transport your bikes comfortably by train from Bad Ems to Lahnstein (free transport for bikes). There is a railway line along both sides of the river Rhine, so that your bikes can also be transported.

 Course of the trail

Starting in Lahnstein you have got two alternatives to cycle upriver towards Mainz. On the left side of the river (see map below) the cycle track is well-built to a great extend. On the right side there are still some gaps, so that you will have to cycle along the “A” road. Thanks to the flying bridges you can change the sides to visit sights on both sides.
