About the E-Bike Tour
Joseph Mallord William Turner, inspired by travelogues, novels and poems, travelled the picturesque Middle Rhine Valley for the first time in 1817 – on foot, by ferry and by boat.
The painter’s first arrival on the Rhine is now 200 years ago. On 19 August 1817, the son of a barber near Cologne spends his first day on the Rhine. He travels upstream to Mainz and back again, climbs high up to castles and also draws on the water in boats.
He sketches many views of the valley with the greatest density of castles in the world: steep vineyards, cliffs, castles, churches and old towns – the basis for his watercolours, which are later painted in England.
We start the tour in the footsteps of the “Master of Light” in Bad Salzig/Bingen. Cycle with us to a selection of four spectacular places where the most important English painter and one of the most brilliant artists of the Romanticism period found his inspiration.
After a picnic with a wide view of the Rhine, we cycle back along the banks in a relaxed manner. An unforgettable art experience in the great outdoors.
Moderately difficult tour – cycling fitness for duration and length is a prerequisite.
up to 2 days before the tour
We cycle in all weathers. In case of persistent bad weather, the tour will be shortened as far as possible. In the event of foreseeable extreme weather conditions, the bike tour will be cancelled by email/phone to all participants up to 1.5 h before the start of the tour.
