Basel - Strasbourg

Rhine cycle path II

Three countries, three cultures and a wonderful Mediterranean climate await you in the Rhine valley between the Alps, Black Forest and the Vosges Mountains. Comfortable routes take you to wonderful destinations, which alone make the trip worthwhile. The picturesque city of Basel is the starting point for your tour. The Rhine passes through beautiful natural landscapes, the impressive mountain ranges of the Black Forest, always firmly in view of the Baden wine route to arrive to Müllheim. On the other side of the Rhine, Colmar is waiting, the capital of Alsace wines. Through picturesque and typically French countryside, the River Lauch and the many canals flow round the old town with its cathedral, tanners' quarter and the former fishermen's' quarter of Little Venice. At the foot of the Vosges Mountains, you cycle along the French wine route, through dreamy villages with many Alsatian timber-frame houses and almost perfectly preserved mediaeval town centers.

Schön durch die Weinberge
Die Fa. Espace Randonnee hat sehr gut vorbereitete Leihräder beigestellt (nur Licht ging nicht-wurde auch nicht benötigt). Sehr umfangreiche Unterlagen und eine reibungslose Organisation haben die Reise zum Erfolggemacht. Trotz der umfangreichen Unterlagen fährt es sich in den Großstädten mit NAVI oder einem Smartphone zügiger. Die Fa. Espace Randonnee ist empfehlenswert.
