South Alsace

Tour of the border Triangle

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.

Itinerary

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 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. One stage a little bit hilly.

wunderschön
Die Weinstrasse mit ihren Winzerdörfern und die Ausblicke über die weiten Rebberge hinunter in die Rheinebene bis zum Schwarzwald waren ein grosses Erlebniss. Wir hatten aber auch ein traumhaftes Sommerwetter.

Feedback Südelsass
Die Streckenführung hat uns gefallen. Die Streckenbeschreibung war gewöhnungsbedürftig. Die Streckenkennzeichnung war oft nicht zu finden (manchmal hinter zusätzlich angebrachten Schildern). Wir hatten einige Kilometer mehr auf dem Tacho als angegeben. In den Unterlagen könnte noch erwähnt werden, dass es am Sonntag schwierig ist, auf der Strecke von Straßburg nach Ettenheim-Münchweier eine Möglichkeit zum Einkehren zu finden und es gut wäre Proviant für den Tag von Straßburg mitzunehmen.

Prima organisert
Prima organisiert-Hotels, Hotline.Von Freiburg bis Strassburg die Streckenausschilderung mit den grünen Pfeilen hervorragend!! Immer vorhanden und auch auf langen geraden Strecken immer Bestätigung durch die Pfeile. Ab Strassburg bis Freiburg sehr schlechte Ausschilderung. An Kreuzungen fehlten diese sehr oft obwohl von anderen Veranstaltern eine Ausschilderung vorhanden war. Haben sehr viel mehr Kilometer zurücklegen müssen ( z.B. Ettingen Freiburg anstatt 48 km 70 km ). Eine Nachbesserung auf deutscher Seite ist dringend nötig.

Eine sehr schöne Radreise durch die Weinberge des Südelsass. Die Unterkünfte waren Super und alles gut organisiert. Für die Radreise war das Kartenmaterial nicht optimal.
