Description

Day 1: Strasbourg
Individual arrival in Strasbourg in the late afternoon. Part French, part German, Strasbourg has always been a crossroads of European history. After centuries of alternating annexation by the two countries, following 1945, Strasbourg is not only a French city but also a symbol of a Europe that fought for centuries. It's no coincidence that it was chosen as the European Capital hosting three main institutions: the European Parliament, the Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe. Nowadays, the dual Franco-German identity that has tormented it for centuries makes Strasbourg a captivating and cosmopolitan city, where the best of both nationalities coexist in architecture, social organization, art and gastronomy.
Day 2: Strasbourg – Ettenheim Region (60 km)
Leaving Strasbourg, you'll cross the magnificent Jardin des Deux Rives to reach Kehl where the itinerary on the German side of the Rhine begins. A flat and easy stage that will allow you to discover the Rhine forest and the beautiful villages lining the river.
Day 3: Ettenheim – Freiburg (50 km)
Today you'll cycle along the Rheintalweg bike path, then onto the Breisgauradweg to arrive at the towns of Riegel and Emmendingen. You'll then continue into the Landwasser forest to reach Freiburg, the capital of the Brisgau region, considered the gateway to the Black Forest. For its beauty, mild climate and quality of life, it's one of Germany's most coveted cities.
Day 4: Freiburg – Colmar (60 km)
The stage begins along the Breisgauradweg cycle path to the border city of Breisach, crossing back over the Rhine. After visiting the fortified citadel of Neuf Brisach, a UNESCO World Heritage site with an exceptional star-shaped layout, you'll reach the capital of the lower Rhine: Colmar, a dual-soul French and German city, a true medieval gem where Medieval and Renaissance buildings overlook cobblestone streets, making it a typical example of Alsatian towns.
Day 5: Colmar – Riquewihr (40 km)
After a last pass through Colmar, you'll leave the city to continue towards the fairytale villages along the Wine Route: Equisheim, Turckheim, Kaysersberg until you reach Riquewihr, nestled on the hills along the "Route des Vins" at 300m of altitude, unanimously recognized as one of the most beautiful villages in France. The village is entirely surrounded by 13th-century walls, within which abound taverns, the so-called "wistub", craft shops and breweries. Everywhere there are references to the main local resource, wine, and in fact, as soon as you have the chance to look beyond the walls, there are vineyards as far as the eye can see, all magnificently cared for.
Day 6: Riquewihr – Obernai (35 or 50 km)
Still many typical towns along this route that winds between the Vosges mountain range and the vineyards of the "Grands Crus" offering endless views of the plain.
Day 7: Obernai – Strasbourg (55 or 40 km)
You'll arrive in Rosheim where you can visit the church of St. Pierre et Paul, one of the jewels of Romanesque art in Alsace. You then continue to Molsheim from where you take the bike path along the Canal de la Bruche to reach the heart of Strasbourg again.
Day 8: Strasbourg
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
