Alsace based in one hotel

Where the clocks are ticking very quiet.

On our rally tour we ride right into the heart of Alsatian wine country and to one of the most beautiful towns of the wine route, picturesque Colmar. On the daily tours, you will experience the full diversity of this beautiful region, visiting the pearls of the Alsatian wine route – Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr, Kaysersberg and the ancient German and French fortresses in Breisach and Neuf-Brisach.

Itinerary

Arrival to Colmar, check-in at the hotel and free tour of the town.

On the short version, you leave Colmar in a northerly direction and cycle via Houssen to Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr, Riquewihr and Kientzheim. The longer route takes you through other beautiful wine villages of Riquewihr, notably Turckheim and Eguisheim.

The cycle route takes you from Colmar to Neuf-Brisach, continuing south to the village of Ottmarsheim and its beautiful 12th century church. Next you have to enter the Hardt forest, then continue along the Hüningen canal to reach Mulhouse. After enjoying the historic centre of Mulhouse, visit museums that showcase the city's heritage. Afterwards, take the train back to Colmar.

You cycle on the canal cycle path to Marckolsheim on the Rhine. From there you cycle to Sélestat. The charming old town has 2 large churches: a Romanesque and Gothic basilica. On the way, in the Alsace region, there is the only baroque church in Ebersmunster. When you arrive in Benfeld, you will be surprised not only by its size but also by its rich heritage. Likewise, it is also possible to go directly from Colmar to Sélestat by train (optional, free bike transport).

On asphalted roads, we head north along the Rhône-Rhine canal towards Strasbourg. The trail ends at the Vauban Dam, which was built in the 17th century. From the panoramic terrace you have a magnificent view of the old town, which you can then discover by bike or on foot. Strasbourg has a unique network of cycle paths. The picturesque area of ""La Petite France"" and the impressive Gothic cathedral are just some of the many treasures you can experience in Strasbourg. On your own, you can shorten the route and take the train (optional, free bike transport).

At the foot of the Vosges Mountains, the vineyards begin. The small but picturesque old town of Obernai is definitely worth a visit! As is the wine village of Barr! On the way back, you have the choice of visiting the wine villages of Mittelbergheim, Andlau or Itterswiller, or shortening your route through the beautiful village of Stotzheim.

This stage leads through flat marshes and natural landscapes. You will cycle across the Rhine to the town of Lahr. Lahr lies at the foot of the vineyards that form the start of the Black Forest. Along the Rhine dam you cycle past swamp forests. Here you also have the opportunity to cross over before taking the ferry to the French border town of Rhinau.

Tour character
