Viezstrasse - Cider Route
Trier for All

The Viezstrasse

The orchard fruit culture and the Viez have created a unique tourist route, the Viezstraße. It leads from Saarlouis and Merzig on the Saar to the Moselle city of Trier. The road is 150 kilometres long, a paradise for cyclists and hikers. It leads through a unique landscape and through villages where you can still discover traditional rural life. Along the way, guest houses invite you to linger. Local producers offer their products, be it honey, jam or Schnapps.

A drive along the Viezstraße is a real discovery tour with numerous sights, such as the unique, authentically reconstructed Roman villa in Borg and the largest mosaic floor north of the Alps in Nennig. The Sculpture Trail "Stones on the Border" near Merzig and for tractor fans, for example the "Bulldog Museum" in Kreuzweiler. Not to mention the numerous tourist attractions in Trier.

The Viezstrasse season is traditionally opened in April. Until autumn, there are numerous Viez, Kelter and apple festivals along the road, as well as farmer festivals with predominantly regional products, open house days, public cider tastings, accompanied noble distillate tastings and much more.

Details of the Viezstraße activities can be found in the tourist offices of the participating cities and municipalities.
