Insights into the cycle tour:
Bernkastel-Kues, the centre of the Middle Moselle, is the starting point of this tour. Alt-Kues (finds from the Celtic period were discovered here), is about 15 minutes' walk from the old town. Many winegrowers (and ostrich farms) have their home here...The Fierskapelle is situated in the middle of the vineyards of Kues, the view of the town is spectacular. The Kueser Plateau is the city's "oasis of peace". The curative-climatic health resort is home to four rehabilitation clinics and is ideal for hiking, cycling and breathing. It is only a stone's throw from the Trinity to the Machern Monastery (a former Cistercian convent). Various museums (icons, toys, dolls), a brewery as well as hospitable restaurants invite you to a small (or bigger) visit. Zeltingen-Rachtig is a famous wine village whose operetta festival (every 2 years) attracts numerous guests from home and abroad. The Graacher Schäferei, almost at the end of the tour, offers once again magnificent views before rolling back to Bernkastel.
