We will save Trier for our next trip.

All along the valley is a biking path that is not part of the roadway. We found out that this is the old railway tracks that were taken up and this bike and walking road ( about 1 lane wide) was made. It goes through the complete valley from Koblenz to   ?????

We head back down the Moselle to get to Koblenz for around 830-900 am where we then enter the Rhine river to start the area know as the Rhine gorge with its many castles,

Till tomorrow.
