The beauty of this package is in the freedom it offers: without a guide, you are free to decide the timing, pace, and stops of your journey. Travel freely, travel your way!

3/5 Medium

Moderate, between 35 and 85 kilometers per day with an elevation gain between 300 and 1000 meters.



The starting point is the same as the ending point, with overnight stays in different hotels and daily stages.


Day 1: Freiburg
Individual arrival in Freiburg and accommodation in the hotel. Freiburg is located a few kilometers from the border with France and Switzerland and is considered the sunniest German city. The city's atmosphere is also warm, hospitable, and sunny. The center is characterized by the typical Bächle, small canals found along the streets of the old city where children enjoy walking in summer. In the city center, you can visit the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral with a central nave almost 42 meters high, and various buildings showing obvious French architectural influence.

Day 2: Freiburg – Bonndorf (45 km) | train to Titisee
The first bike stage will immediately take you into the fascinating countryside of the forest. After about ten kilometers, you will reach Kirchzarten, from where we recommend you to take the train to Titisee, thus overcoming the Hell Valley at Titisee, which is the most hilly stretch. You will then continue cycling beyond the typical towns with sloping roofed houses to reach the village of Bonndorf, near the Wutachschlucht gorges, which will surprise you with its Japanese garden. If you want to explore the Wutachschlucht gorge, one of the last untouched river landscapes, we recommend an additional overnight stay in Bonndorf.

Day 3: Bonndorf – Waldshut-Tiengen (45 or 50 km)
From Boondorf you will head straight to the Rhine, which is about 500 meters further south, then you will cycle downhill past the Marienburg convent and Wutöschingen with the megalithic tombs. Along the route, we recommend some stops at local farms and distilleries where you can buy typical products. The destination, Waldshut is near the border with Switzerland and its old town houses many magnificent villas.

Day 4: Waldshut-Tiengen – Basel (50 or 65 km) | train to Basel
Today you will cycle along the Rhine. Bad Säckingen offers the opportunity for a first stop. Not only is there Europe's longest covered wooden bridge, but also two special museums worth a visit: the Museum of Waste and the Museum that tells the romantic story of the trumpeter of Bad Säckingen. From Rheinfelden, a brief train ride to Basel, a city divided into two parts by the Rhine, where you can take a walk in this city center or visit it on board a vintage tram.

Day 5: Basel – Badenweiler/Müllheim (45 or 50 km)
Leaving vibrant Basel, at the intersection of three nations, you will cycle towards the Istein Klotz, which once stood right on the river and was rich in castles and fortresses. As you continue along the edge of the Black Forest, you will soon reach the first thermal locales that draw from the healing waters of the area.

Day 6: Badenweiler/Müllheim – Freiburg (40 or 45 km)
Today you will cycle through the vineyards of Markgräferland. The long sun exposure and pure water in this area make the grapes grown here special. The proverbial Bavarian tranquility dominates in the villages and towns located on the edge of the Black Forest. The tour ends with the return to Freiburg, where you can toast to the end of this beautiful holiday with a great glass of wine.

Day 7: Freiburg
After breakfast, end of services and individual departure.
