Insights into the cycle tour:
The tour starts in the municipality of Veldenz in the "most beautiful side valley of the Moselle". Veldenz Castle, the ancestral home of the Counts of Veldenz - dominating the region from a rugged mountain ridge - still reminds us of the great history of the County of Veldenz. The next stop is the town of Burgen, often referred to as "Little Venice of the Middle Moselle" because of its 19 bridges. Via Gornhausen and Gonzerath we will reach the highlight of the tour - the Belginum Archaeological Park. It gives a very vivid insight into life on a trunk road in Celtic and Roman times. Via Kommen, Longkamp and Monzelfeld the route leads into the Hinterbachtal valley and from here via Thalveldenz back to the starting point in Veldenz.
