I don't know what is meaning the "wound" in the sentence.

Three men dressed for business travel in jeans and dress shirts loaded backpacks into the trunk of a black coupe and wound their way through the center of a major European city.

Wound is being used here as a synonym for wandered or roamed.

Wound is the past-tense of wind (pronounced with a hard "i" sound, like "kind"), where someone who is winding is walking back-and-forth.

So, if someone "wound up somewhere", then they walked back-and-forth, definitely not directly, and eventually arrived at the destination.

"Wound" could be the past and past participle of the word "wind". To move along a twisting path or route.
