Travel by bus, train and boat

The Mosel Valley has a good public transport infrastructure. The transport services of the VRT (Transport Association Trier Region) cover the area from Perl to Bullay and those of the VRM (Transport Association Rhine-Mosel) from Bullay to Koblenz. Together they ensure a well-functioning network of bus and train connections, which provides a regular service for many of the towns and villages along the Moselsteig Trail

Current information: Due to digitalisation and modernisation measures of the interlocking technology, disruptions in rail traffic on the route between Trier and Koblenz are to be expected until November 2022. A rail replacement service will be provided. Therefore, please contact the railway companies directly before travelling.

You can find detailed information on the VRT and VRMwebsites and their timetable apps:

 A Mosel boat trip is a great way of getting back to your base after completing a multi-stage hike. Find more information here:
