Southern Alsace

Tour of the border triangle.

Note: Due to the current situation, this tour cannot be booked for 2020.

Three countries, three cultures and a wonderful Mediterranean climate awaits 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 Freiburg is the starting point for our tour. At the Rhine knee you can enjoy one of the most beautiful and well preserved mediaeval old towns in Europe. The Rhine passes through beautiful natural landscapes, the impressive mountain ranges of the Black Forest, always firmly in view of the Baden wine route and Freiburg with its picturesque old town. 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 centres. The area around the colourful town Hall in Mulhouse, the European capital of technical museums, is dominated by the architectural diversity from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Gründerzeit and modern times.

The Breisach Cathedral towers imposingly over the bank of the Rhine. You cross the Rhine here to
Neuf-Brisach in Alsace, a 17th century, octagonal fortified town. The day ends wonderfully in beautiful Colmar, one of the most delightful cities on the French wine route.

From Colmar we follow the French wine route. The dreamy wine-growing villages, with many Alsatian timber-frame houses, and magnificent mediaeval town centres in the midst of extensive vineyards are areas for unwinding, enjoyment and simply relaxing.

From Guebwiller you’re cycling to Ungersheim and passing Ecomusée d’Alsace towards Mulhouse with its diverse old town. The largest automobile collection in the world and the Rail & Electricity Museum will inspire everyone, not just technology fans!

The cycle Path brings you along the Rhône to the Eurovelo 6 Route over the Three-country-bridge to Basel.

Along the Rhine cycling is magnificent. Atmospheric destination of this day is Müllheim in Markgräfler Land

After the visit to the Villa Urbana and the Malteserschloss in Heitersheim, we head into the Breisgau. In the treasure chest of Bad Krozingen, the mineral and thermal springs await you, before the day fades away in Freiburg, the gateway to the Black Forest.

Tour character

Flat routes along the Rhine, a little bit hilly during the French wine street.. You cycle mostly on bike paths and sometimes on side streets with less traffic. Two stages a little bit hilly.

Sehr schöne Tour zum Kennenlernen des Elsass
Sehr gute Reiseunterlagen. Auch ohne GPS kann man mit den Karten und der Beschreibung die Wege sehr gut finden. Guebwiller ist keine sehenswerte Stadt. In Mulhouse ist das Schlumpfmuseum (Automuseum) zu empfehlen. Auf der Tour kommt man am Parc le Petit Prince vorbei. Für Kinder ein muss. Im Gesamtergebnis hat es uns sehr gut gefallen.

Schöne und gemütliche Tour
Flache aber abwechslungsreiche Strecke durch ländliches Gebiet, Weinberge und malerische Dörfer (z.B. Eguisheim). Mein elfjähriger Sohn ist auch gut mitgekommen und hatte Spass. Das Personal in allen Hotels war sehr freundlich und der Gepäcktransport hat wunderbar geklappt. Die Strecke war auf der deutschen Seite etwas besser beschrieben/ausgeschildert als in Frankreich.
