Mosel

so French
so French

The weather was predicted to be sunny and warm, so I started early, around 8:30 AM.

First, I cycled down all the way to the Mosel again and after just a few meters, I was already in France. There was no sign for the border but the “Moselradweg” sign was suddenly in French: “Chemin de la Mosel” 🙂

Luxembourg on the other side of the Mosel

I woke up around 6:30 and was already well rested, so I went into town around 7 AM to take the tourist pictures of Trier because I had forgotten my camera on the Wednesday.

Where the Mosel runs into the Rhine: Deutsches Eck

 

After the breakfast, I packed up my things and wanted to get on the road. But just before I got going, it started to rain – and not only a little. So I put on my rain gear before I cycled to the Deutsche Eck, the point in Koblenz where the Mosel runs into the Rhine river and where the Mosel cycling path starts.
