  • The tour runs on main roads along the Rhine in the UNESCO world heritage Upper Middle Rhine valley, passing vintages, castles and the famous rock of the Loreley - an experience of unique scenery.
  • It is possible to skate only parts of the route e.g. between the break sites Bingen - St. Goar - Koblenz - St. Goarshausen (each section will be approx. 30 - 35 km).
