in the Valley of the Loreley
The Rhine Cycle Route (EuroVelo 15) follows one of Europe's largest rivers from its source in the Swiss Alps to its mouth in the North Sea. Over 1,233 km, it passes through four countries and nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The section in the Loreley valley between Bingen/Rüdesheim and Koblenz is made for pedalling on both banks of the river. Here the Rhine Cycle Route always follows the course of the river.
On the left bank of the Rhine, it runs directly along the banks of the Rhine, along the Rhine promenades in towns or as an independent cycle path next to the road.
On the right bank of the Rhine between Rüdesheim and Kestert, cycling is made more difficult by a few gaps. Until the entire Rhine cycle path on the right bank is completed, it is advisable to bridge individual sections by boat, ferry or train.
