The last section of the tour offers the opportunity to enjoy the typical Moselle landscape with its small villages one last time before the Moselle Cycle Route comes to an end in Koblenz.
This final stretch leads along the left bank of the Moselle, from Löf to the outskirts of Koblenz; the Deutsches Eck is then reached via the right side of the river. There are still several typical Moselle wine-making villages waiting to be explored along the last kilometres of the Moselle Cycle Route through the Terrassenmosel (Terrace Moselle) region, which owes its name to the steep slopes where vines grow on narrow terraces secured by dry stone walls. In Kobern-Gondorf, for example, there's a medieval market place with fountain featuring a mythical alpine dragon as well as what is thought to be the oldest half-timbered building in Germany, dating from 1320. Pretty traditional half-timbered houses also characterise the wine-making village of Winningen, which is considered one of Germany’s most beautiful villages. Its welcoming wineries are perfect for a stop before continuing on the cycle tour to Koblenz. The Deutsches Eck, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine, signals the end of this last stretch and therefore also the end of the Moselle Cycle Route. A visit to Koblenz, with its inviting winding lanes and little squares as well as numerous sights and attractions, is the perfect way to end the cycle tour. How about a cable car ride to the impressive Ehrenbreitstein fortress or a tour of the old town with its numerous churches, historic town houses and museums?
The Razejunge vineyard picnic area just before Lehmen is a lovely spot for a break.
