Bicycle tour: Maifeld Cycle Path

From Mayen to Ochtendung and from Polch to Münstermaifeld

The Maifeld Cycle Path (Maifeld-Radwanderweg) connects the town of Mayen with the town of Ochtendung over a distance of about 18 kilometers. Here the cycle path uses the old railroad line from Koblenz via Polch to Mayen. From Polch, a detour of the cycle path leads to Münstermaifeld (10km), also on an old railroad line.

The entire route is asphalted. If you want to ride the whole way there and back, Polch, which is in the “center” of the three star-shaped sections, is a good starting point. Münstermaifeld has a connection to the Moselle valley to Hatzenport.
