Details about the cycling tour around Alsace

The highlights of the cycling holiday at a glance

Itinerary

Early arrival in Strasbourg is recommended as the city has more than enough to explore on its own.

You leave Strasbourg via the cycle route along the Rhine-Rhône Canal in a southerly direction.

ca. 25-55 km

You drive through villages and along the canal from Marckolsheim to the art city of Colmar. This fairytale village was also the main source of inspiration for the village of Beauty and the Beast. Colmar is an authentic French art town with a rich history dating back to the 8th century. A city walk also starts at Museum d'Unterlinden, which is located opposite the Office du Tourisme. The description of the walk can be purchased for 50 euro cents at the Office du Tourisme. With this city walk, you really don't miss anything about this unique city.

ca. 40-70 km

You say goodbye to Colmar. On beautifully landscaped cycle paths it goes via Neuf-Brisach to Ottmarsheim. It is worth visiting the basilica from the 12th century. You continue your route along the Rhine Canal, which leads you to the centre of Mulhouse.

ca. 65 km

On cycle paths and via small streets past the open-air museum "Ecomusée d'Alsace". Continue your route at the foot of the Vosges peaks to Guebwiller.

ca. 35 km
