Leaving behind the medieval town of Bernkastel-Kues with its romantic alleys and impressive half-timbered houses, the Moselle cycle path on this stage - always along the right bank - leads first to Zeltingen-Rachtig. Before entering the village, amidst the vineyards, the sundial, built in 1620, impresses, giving the "Zeltinger Sonnenuhr" vineyard its name. A detour through the village centre with its old manor houses and half-timbered houses is well worthwhile. Opposite Rachtig is the former Cistercian convent of Machern, within the walls of which there is now a museum, a wine cabinet and a convent brewery with a pub. The cycle path continues along the right bank of the Moselle through the wine villages of Erden, Lösnich, Kindel and Wolf before reaching today's destination. Traben-Trarbach, the famous Art Nouveau town, which was the second largest wine trading centre in Europe after Bordeaux around 1900, has a lot to offer. The ruins of Grevenburg Castle tower high above the town, with numerous architectural masterpieces of Art Nouveau and the Belle Epoque to admire. The Museums-Zeile (including the Mittelmosel Museum and the Buddha Museum) offers cultural and historical experiences, and on a guided tour through the mystical semi-darkness of the Traben-Trarbach underworld the participants embark on an exciting journey of discovery.
