A relatively short and flat round tour through large parts of the former county of Veldenz in the "most beautiful side valley of the Moselle".The starting point of the cycle tour is the Moselle town of Mülheim. The Moselle community is surrounded by vineyards, fields and meadows at the mouth of two streams and on the Moselle (115 m above sea level) at the foot of a circulating mountain.

Insights into the cycle tour:

A slightly elevated vineyard path leads from Mülheim to Veldenz. In the direction of Thalveldenz there is a magnificent view of Veldenz Castle, which as the former ancestral home of the Counts of Veldenz still reminds us of the great history of the county. It was actually a castle, but because of its size - it was the largest castle on the Middle Moselle in the 15th century - it was also called a castle. Afterwards we go to castles. This idyllic place is often called "Little Venice of the Moselle" because of its 19 bridges. The route continues to Brauneberg, from where the Moselle cycle path leads back to Mülheim.

Author’s recommendation

Numerous places to stop in Mülheim, Veldenz and Brauneberg. Particularly worth visiting: the Villa Romana in Veldenz

Round trip

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts in Mülheim and leads you slightly elevated along vineyard paths through the former Moselle valley to Veldenz. Through Veldenz you will enter the Hinterbachal for a short stretch in the direction of Thalveldenz. The view goes up into the Hinterbach valley. Wild rock formations in the dense forest of the steep slopes frame the imposing Veldenz Castle. Schloss Veldenz, the ancestral home of the Counts of Veldenz, dominates the region from a rugged ridge down the mountain and still reminds us of the great history of the County of Veldenz. The only partially preserved buildings give an idea of how imposing this castle complex once was. You leave the Hinterbach Valley and Veldenz Castle behind and drive through Veldenz, leaving the town on the K 89 district road in the direction of the castles, which you reach after only a few kilometres.Castles, which are in no way inferior to Veldenz in terms of romantic beauty, are often referred to as "Little Venice of the Middle Moselle" because of their 19 bridges. You leave the wine village in the direction of Hirzlei and enter the Frohnbach valley to return to Burgen in an arc. You pass through this and at the end of Burgen turn onto an asphalt farm track which leads you towards Brauneberg and Mülheim. Once you arrive in Brauneberg, you have to pass the B53 to get on the Moselle cycle path. On this you cycle a short distance back to Mülheim.
