Itinerary

Welcome to Colmar with its medieval streets and architectural heritage spanning six centuries.

Today you have the choice between two variants, depending on how many kilometres you want to cover. You leave Colmar heading north on a route that reveals wine villages of incredible charm, Ribeauville, Hunawihr, Riquewihr, Kientzheim. The longer option invites you to discover Turckheim and Eguisheim, among the most beautiful villages in France.

Starting in Colmar you will head to the valley of Munster, passing Turckheim and Zimmerbach. Smooth hills, high alps, escarpments and glacial lakes create the versatile landscape of valley Munster, one of the most beautiful of the Vosges massif. The region is popular for its Munster-cheese, take your time to visit the “maison du fromage” with a cheese museum. Cycling back on comfy cycle paths through the nature and small villages.

After the stages in the vineyards, the tour continues comfortably through the Rhine Valley today. In Neuf-Brisach you drive past the octagonal, baroque fortress, which was built around 1700 by Vauban, the fortress builder Louis XIV. After crossing the Rhine bridge, the Breisgau awaits you! In Breisach, you can admire the cathedral, the town centre and the picturesque streets. Back in Marckolsheim/France you can visit a pure fortress bunker of the Second World War Maginot Line. On the channel cycle path you will get back to Colmar.

From Colmar you will follow the French wine route. Charming wine-vilages with lots of Alsatian half-timbered houses and beautiful medieval centres within vineyards are the places to relay, enjoy and to take a break from everyday´s life. From Guebwiller, you can either cycle to Bollwiller or continue to Ungersheim to visit the open-air museum "Ecomusee d'Alsace". The cycle path leads you directly to Mulhouse. Going back by train to Colmar.

You leave by train to Erstein, where you get into the saddle and cycle along the Rhone-Rhine Canal into the heart of the European capital. See the World Heritage-listed historic city centre, the German Quarter or the European Parliament. Return by train from Strasbourg to Colmar.

Tour character

Herrliche Tage im Elsass mit E-Bikes
Es gab wunderbare Touren nach Rieauvillé, Riquevir, Neuf Brisach, dem Rhein entlang, Turckheim, Strasbourg und Colmar selbst. Die Fahrt nach Mulhouse war zum Vergessen. Das Hotel war gut gelegen und sympathisch, das Frühstück jeden morgen genau das gleiche (ohne Variation). Es waren erholsame Ferientage und gerne wieder.

Danke - hat alles gepaßt
Die Radtouren waren wunderschön und trotz der Hitze bewältigbar. Die Radunterlagen waren super, vor allem die GPS Daten haben uns ans richtige Ziel geführt. Das Hotel war angenehm, das für uns gebuchte Zimmer wäre für eine Woche zu klein gewesen, wir erhielten aber gegen einen Aufpreis ein größeres Zimmer- hat also auch alles super geklappt. Da wir unsere eigenen Räder mitgebracht haben, haben wir keine Betreuung Vorort benötigt und können dazu nichts sagen.

Elsass Tour
Tolles Hotelzimmer im Bristol; herrliche Tagestouren auf wunderbaren Radwegen; die historischen Weindörfer laden zum Verweilen ein; Colmar und Strasbourg sollte man zu Fuß erkunden. Fazit: eine wunderbare und abwechslungsreiche Sternradtour!
