The Hunsrück-Moselle cycle trail is the ideal trail to take you over the Hunsrück Heights onto the Moselle valley.  It leads from Hahn Airport (Büchenbeuren) via Kastellaun to Treis-Karden.

Distance 58.4 km

Requirements:
Short, moderate climbs across the Hunsrück between Büchenbeuren, Kastellaun and Lieg require only moderate cycling ability. The route towards the Moselle is then downhill all the way. In the opposite direction, the 2.5 km-long main incline between Lütz and Lieg up from the Moselle requires considerable strength, at up to 10 %. Since it runs on a tarmacked forest path, however, it may be used undisturbed by car traffic.
Alternatives: www.radbusse.de

Course: 41.5 km forest, farm or cycle trails 8.5 km urban roads without cycle trails 8 km roads outside built-up areas without cycle trails

Surface quality: 50.5 km tarmacked surfaces 7.5 km water-bound surfaces well suited for touring bikes

Route overview:
1. Hunsrück route Büchenbeuren - Kastellaun 29 km:  Across the Hunsrück plateau from west to east, including Hahn Airport, mainly on forest and farm tracks with short ascents and descents.

Destination

Treis-Karden: Mosel-Radweg

Turn-by-turn directions

Initially, the western part of the trail stretches over the flattened Hunsrück heights along the watershed of the Nahe and Moselle rivers, between Büchenbeuren and Kastellaun. Further on, a quiet connection away from traffic leads from the Hunsrück towards the Moselle. Partly in the valley, partly on the wide heights, the cycle trail winds from Kastellaun through Mannebach, Sabershausen, past Petershäuserhof to Lieg, where the rapid descent into Lütz in the Lützbach valley begins.

Questions and answers

Question from Gert Vlot · September 01, 2020 · Community
Wir haben ein Ferienhaus in Treis-Karden. Kann man zuerst zum Hunsrück gebracht werden, damit wir von dort zurückfahren können? (Hunsrück-Mosel-Radweg)
show more
Answered by Iris Müller · September 01, 2020 · Hunsrück-Touristik GmbH
Sehr geehrter Herr Vlot, wenn Sie mit dem Fahrrad auf dem Mosel-Radweg entlang bis Brodenbach fahren (ca. 15 km), können Sie von dort den Radbus bis nach Kastellaun nehmen. Dieser transportiert Ihre Räder auch. Der Radbus muss aber vorher online auf www.radbusse.de zum gewünschten Termin reserviert werden und die Plätze für die Räder online bezahlt werden. Das Personenticket lösen Sie dann im Bus. Von Kastellaun aus können Sie den Hunsrück-Mosel-Radweg dann wieder runter nach Treis-Karden fahren (ca. 30 km). Die Tourist-Information vor Ort kann Ihnen hierzu bestimmt auch noch weitere Information geben. Es grüßt Sie Ihre Hunsrück-Touristik GmbH
