The source of the river Moselle is in France, and the well-signposted Moselle cycle path runs from the French city of Thionville, through Luxembourg and Trier all the way to the point where the Moselle joins the Rhine in Koblenz.
The Moselle cycle path has the typically flat character of a riverside cycling route, with no difficult climbs. It is a predominantly easy route, making it particularly popular among families and inexperienced cyclists.
It also offers excellent links to public transport services along the way: there are major railway stations in Remiremont, Nancy, Metz and Thionville (rail transport by regional trains from Luxembourg onwards), and on the sections of the route between Perl, Trier and Schweich and from Traben-Trarbach to Koblenz. In some sections cyclists also have the option of catching a passenger ferry at a very reasonable cost. Special cyclists' buses with trailers also run along the German part of the route during the tourist season.
