A bike and boat cycling holiday between Koblenz and Bad Wimpfen along the Rhine and Neckar rivers through one of Germany’s most scenic wine regions. Historic riverside towns, fantastic landscapes and a pleasant combination of activity and relaxation make this a memorable cycling holiday.
The MS Patria, your floating hotel for the week, is a comfortable river cruiser specially adapted for cycle cruise trips. You’ll disembark each day for relaxing rides alongside the river, through timeless landscapes and quaint riverside towns. The rides are easy but if you fancy taking a day off you can just stay on board and let the stunning scenery drift by as the MS Patria cruises to her next port of call.

Highlights of this trip include riding from Boppard to Rüdesheim through the breathtaking Rhine Valley, sampling the excellent local wines in Nierstein, exploring the atmospheric old town of Heidelberg and arriving triumphantly in the medieval town of Bad Wimpfen.
All cabins are en suite, and the MS Patria also has a restaurant, bar and saloon, plus partially covered sun deck.
The cycle rides cover anywhere between 16 and 28 miles each day on paved paths beside the river. There are next to no hills and this tour really can be enjoyed by anyone with basic level of fitness.
