Description

Day 1: Strasbourg
Arrival in Strasbourg and check-in at the hotel in the late afternoon. Located in the heart of continental Europe, roughly halfway between Paris and Prague, Strasbourg welcomes you with its cosmopolitan atmosphere. Chosen as a European capital, the city hosts 3 major institutions: the European Parliament, the Court of Human Rights, and the Council of Europe. Today, the dual Franco-German identity that has tormented it for centuries makes Strasbourg a fascinating city, where architecture, social organization, art, and gastronomy blend the best of both nationalities. To entertain your children, you can visit Le Vaisseau, a center dedicated to discovering science through interactive tools that even the youngest can handle, 3D films, and many other attractions. Among the proposed and explored universes, we find themes of construction, water, the human body, the animal world, the secrets of sound and image, and a large garden. In addition, in the city, besides the numerous parks, it's worth visiting the Tomi Ungerer Museum dedicated to the famous comic and children's book illustrator.

Day 2: Strasbourg – Obernai (37 km; +246/-200 m)
The first bicycle stage will lead you along the Bruche canal, used in the past to transport wine from the vineyard region to the capital. You will then follow the bicycle path along the canal to Molsheim to conclude the stage in Obernai, a city whose charm is based on its ramparts, the traditional half-timbered houses, and the bell tower.

Day 3: Obernai – Andlau (14 km; +179/-140 m)
The bike path will lead you today through the vineyard region and its famous villages: Barr, Mittelbergheim, and Andlau. You are now in the heart of the Alsatian vineyards area where a long series of picturesque villages interspersed with famous towns offers a breathtaking overview of the richness and diversity of the Alsace territories.

Day 4: Andlau – Saint Hippolyte (24 km; +226/-229 m)
Between Andlau and Saint Hippolyte, a short stage through pleasant towns to savor the beauty of the Alsatian vineyards.

Day 5: Saint Hippolyte – Kaysersberg (19 km; +371/-338 m)
Today the kids will be spoiled for choice. For the younger ones, but not only, Daniel Stoeffel's chocolate factory opens its doors: stop for a visit, and of course for a taste! Along the way, a short detour allows you, if you wish, to reach the stork reintroduction center, a park created to bring these birds back to Alsace: the species was almost extinct due to high voltage wires against which they died on their return from Africa. The final destination of the day is Kayserberg, a small village boasting a significant architectural heritage, enriched by the old houses of the historic center and the ruins of the castle, which can also be reached on foot with a beautiful walk through the vineyards.

Day 6: Kaysersberg – Eguisheim (20 km; +138/-178 m)
The bike path takes you today in the direction of Eguisheim, noted for its construction in concentric circles; in 2013, the town was voted by the French as their favorite town in the country. Alsatian-style churches, cobblestone streets, and even a castle await you; you may even think that this village was born from a fairytale by a writer. Moreover, Eguisheim is part of the Alsace Wine Route; thus, be ready for good wine and undoubtedly good food.

Day 7: Eguisheim – Colmar (18 km, +111/-123 m)
A short bike stage will lead you today to the capital of the Lower Rhine, a delightful village with sloping red roofs, surrounded by vine-clad hills and crossed by the Weiss river: Colmar, a city with a dual soul, French and German, a real gem that with its medieval and Renaissance buildings overlooking the cobbled streets is a typical example of an Alsatian city. Discover the legends encased in the facades and doors, the wrought iron signs, the shops overflowing with delicious specialties; you will have time to discover Little Venice, a picturesque area in the city center crossed by the Lauch river: on board a boat, you can fully enjoy this magical atmosphere. Also, visit the Toy Museum: over 2000 pieces from different eras, dolls, trains, puppets, teddy bears, cars, and much more!

Day 8: Colmar – Strasbourg
After breakfast, return to Strasbourg by train and end of services.
