The Self Guided motorcycle tour of Germany and the Mosel Valley is tailor made to allow you to enjoy the sights and roads of this fantastic region in just 5 days. You’ll spend three nights in style by the river and sample rideouts to fairytale castles, lush vineyard strewn valleys and historic towns. The Nurburgring is easily accessible as are the resorts of Boppard, St Goarshausen and Rüdesheim.

After several days getting a taste for what makes this region so special you will head back across northern France visiting the Douaumont ossuary WW1 war memorial at Verdun and then onto to your last overnight stop along the river Semois past the majestic Château-Fort de Bouillon.

Just a quick note to let you know what a wonderful time I had on my recent trip. I was a little apprehensive about an organised holiday but the trip was wonderful. Our contact at Magellan was great all the way through, solved many problems and ensured everyone’s trip went off without a hitch. Nothing was too much trouble and I certainly hope I will be able to go away with you again in the future.

The Mosel, located near Germany’s western border, is the Rhine’s peaceful little sister. The main tourist town of Cochem, tucked between steep vineyards and the river, boasts picturesque medieval streets. Stroll the delightful riverfront promenade, play life-size chess, or just grab a bench and watch Germany at play.
