Constance - Freiburg

Constance to Freiburg.

Left unscathed for hundreds of years, the High Rhine region presents itself in all its glory. Small medieval towns such as the bishoprics of Konstanz, Basel and Freiburg complement the impressive landscape around Lake Constance and the countryside of the foothills of the Black Forest and the Jura mountains. Experience the famous Rhine Falls, the charming Markgräflerland and the charming cultural metropolis of Basel.

Itinerary

Take the opportunity to visit the island of Mainau, wander through Constance’s old town or visit the aquariums in the Sea Life Center and go to the Archaeological Museum.

Following the side of Lake Constance, you pedal to Stein am Rhein with its frescoed, medieval houses. Switching several times between Germany and Switzerland you reach the canton's capital, Schaffhausen. The town, whose citizens competed with each other in building gables on their houses, is overlooked by Munot fort..

After breakfast, it's a short cycle ride to the Rhine Falls, one of Europe's biggest waterfalls. You can get a boat right up close to the mighty roar of the water. The Rhine accompanies you further on your way to Waldshut-Tiengen, passing Rheinau monastery and the little town of Kaiserstuhl.

You cycle further on downstream, via Laufenburg to Bad Säckingen, where you'll find Europe's longest wooden, roofed bridge. Have a stop here - there are two very special museums you can visit: The Müllmuseum (garbage museum) and a museum about the famous "Trumpeter from Bad Säckingen". Following the northern bank of the Rhine, you pedal on to Rheinfelden and from there your route takes you to Basel by train

You leave Basel, on the border to three countries, and will see the Istein Klotz from afar - which used to be located right on the Rhine and has always been a site for castles and forts. At the edge of the Black Forest, you cycle through small spa towns, which all draw on the healing waters of the area.

You cycle through the vineyards of the Markgräflerland - up to the right the Black Forest and to the left the Vosges Mountains. Freiburg is Germany's warmest and most southern city. It has its own particular charm - look out for the small water-filled rills along most streets and alleyways. From the Schlossberg, you have a great view over the town and the surrounding area.

Tour character

Sometimes hilly, sometimes level ground, with dedicated cycle paths and bike lanes. The last two sections are much hillier. Easy.
