South Alsace round trip

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 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!

You leave Mulhouse along the typical canals and cycle through extensive forest to river Rhine. The old fortress of Neuenburg on the German side is awaiting you before you reach the idyllic Müllheim close to the Black Forest.

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.
