Bike tour along Moselle and Rhine

Hm, no posts for almost a month… Looks like I’ve been too busy during the autumn holidays and since. Let’s play catch up with a few photos here…

On September 23rd, Andre and I decided that we simply had to make the most of the beautiful weather and went on a bike tour of almost exactly 80 km (50 miles). We went downhill to the Moselle from our home, then rode along the river up to Koblenz, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine at the Deutsches Eck. We continued along the Rhine to Boppard, from where we took a train back up the hill to Emmelshausen, the nearest train station from home.

View into the Moselle valley. The town on the river is Brodenbach.

The Marksburg above Braubach, seen from the opposite bank. It is one of the few castles in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley that has never been destroyed. The chimneys to the right belong to an old mine, by the way.

Coming soon: photos from my excursion to Trier and AndrĂ©’s and my almost-but-not-quite 100 km (62 miles) hike on the Rheinsteig along the Rhine.
