Itinerary

Day 1Arrival to  Strasbourg

Individual arrival into Strasbourg, why not check into your hotel and then head out to explore this wonderful city.

Day 2Strasbourg to Selestat Area  15.6-22-33 miles, 25-35-55km.

Today you cycle to towards Selestat leaving Strasbourg behind you as you cycle southwards towards Sand.  You will be cycling on a pretty cycleway in the heart of the local Ried region. This is a wonderful first days cycling to get you started. Take plenty of stops to admire views of the great river and why not stop for a typical French lunch and relax with a glass of the region’s wine. Not too much though as you still need to cycle to your destination.

Day 3Selestat area to Colmar 31-41miles 50-66km

Another pleasant day of cycling. Today`s stretch leads you first to Ebermunster where you can visit the famous organ in the baroque church and then continues to the lively city of Colmar with its picturesque city centre and its uncountable sights. All you have to remember is that you have all day to make the trip and to make sure you sample more wines along the way.

Day 4Colmar – Mulhouse area 41 miles 66km

Today’s biking will take you through more sleepy villages. It seems sometimes as though life as stood still even when still not far from the busy city of Strasbourg. This is sleepy France, playing boules on the village square, relaxing in the shade on the kitchen chair, older ladies maybe doing there dress making outside. Also today you have a dreamy landscape which will be your companion on your way to Ottmarsheim. Take some time to visit the dome of the 12th-century church.

Day 5Mulhouse area – Guebwiller 22 miles 35km

Maybe today the scenery changes a little with the Vosges mountains in a closer view. More lovely quiet roads and tiny villages await you as you cycle your way to Guebwiller with its Dominican Abbey. You are now in close view of the Vosges Mountains.

Day 6 Guebwiller – Riquewihr/Kaysersberg (approx. 46 km, 29 miles)

Enjoy your today`s stretch through quaint villages with half-timbered houses and pass Albert Schweitzer`s birth place at Kaysersberg until you reach the pearl of the wine route, Riquewihr.

Day 7Riquewihr/Kayserberg – Obernai/Barr (approx. 49 km/ 31 miles)

A wonderful day today biking alongside vineyards and soft green hills to the wine-growing village of Obernai. You really know that you are in a wine region, seems there are vines in all directions. Of course, why not sample more wine along the way!

Day 8Obernai/Barr – Strasbourg (approx. 40 km/25 miles)

Passing Avolsheim you will reach Strasbourg in the early afternoon. Individual departure once you arrive of maybe take an extra night so to visit the city again.
