    I highly recommend combining this tour with the Mosel River tour. They are both wonderful bike tours, but they are also quite different and fun to compare & contrast.
    Whereas the Mosel River tour is a progressive tour with overnights in a different town/hotel each day, the Remagen: Rhine Valley tour is based out of a single hotel with interesting & beautiful side trips for each day's itinerary.

    If you arrive in Remagen by train (highly recommended) you are literally a few footsteps away from your hotel. This is convenient for your arrival & departure as well as for a couple of the side trips. The train serves both the Rhine Valley and the Ahr Valley. They are both great for bicycle tours, but the Ahr Valley is an absolute must. It is so calm & peaceful yet filled with incredible scenic, historic & gastronomic stops. The owner of your hotel also serves as your tour-guide if you visit the Ahr Valley wine museum. And the Ahr Valley bike path is one of Read more… Germany's greatest hidden gems.

    One of the most fascinating surprises on this tour was the little medieval villages found in the region. My two favorites were Linz & Urpel. Both of these villages are directly across the Rhine River form Remagen and easily accessible via ferry and biking or walking. And of course it goes without saying that Remagen is full of historical significance from medieval times all the way up to and beyond World War II. For peaceful, scenic & historical bicycle exploration, you can't go wrong with this lovely tour.

    September 2014...Arrived Frankfurt from Australia and caught train to Remagen. The walk from the station to the hotel took all of 30 seconds....the delightful receptionist had us booked into our room within a few minutes. Rooms were 10/10. Meals throughout our 7 day stay were all satisfying and scrumptious. Rental cycles albeit a bit on the heavy side were most reliable and well geared..and we should know as we rode up most of the cycle paths which the provided cycle maps suggested we ride down. One of the highlights was the Remagen Wine Queen celebrations held over the weekend in the Alstdt...plenty of wine beer food singing and dancing. Our weeks stay was so enjoyable we are going back in 2015.
