On the former railway line you cycle comfortably from the Vulkaneifel to the Moselle. Recommended for recreational cyclists, families with children & inline skaters in both directions.
This thoroughly enjoyable cycle tour begins in Daun, in the heart of the Volcanic Eifel nature park and geopark - very near the famous maars. The route runs between Daun and Bernkastel-Kues along a disused railway track, with almost no ascents, and with all the attractions along the way is ideal for cyclists looking for a leisurely tour or for families with children. The tour winds downhill to the vineyards of the Moselle river, over viaducts and bridges, through tunnels and forests in the Eifel, past the maars and extinct volcanoes.
Family tip: On the Maar-Moselle cycle route, there is a section of around 11 kilometres which is specially marked as a children's cycle path.
