Itinerary

Once you have arrived in Strasbourg and settled into your hotel, make the most of your free time to explore your surroundings at your own pace. Strasbourg, which is home to the European Parliament, will no doubt seduce you with its charm, sincerity, and flavour.

You will leave Strasbourg along the Rhône-Rhine canal which will lead you along its very pretty cycle track into the heart of the Ried.

You will travel through the landscapes and villages of the Alsatian Ried which is rich in aquatic flora and fauna. Arrival in Colmar the capital of the wine of Alsace and the town of art by the cycle track of the channel of Colmar.

From Colmar you follow the alsatian wine route. The dreamy wine-growing villages, with many Alsatian
timber-frame houses, and magnificent mediaeval town centres in the midst of extensive vineyards are areas
for unwinding, enjoyment and simply relaxing.

At the foot of the Vosges nestle the winemaking villages responsible for the reputation of the Alsatian Grand
Crus: Eguisheim, Turckheim, Kaysersberg and Riquewihr.

Along the Wine Route you will discover the villages of Ribeauvillé, Bergheim, Andlau and its abbey, Barr and
Obernai

Country roads and cycle tracks will take you to Rosheim and to Avolsheim. From there, along the cycle track
on the banks of the Bruche canal, you will reach the capital of Europe: Strasbourg. Departure or prolongation
of your stay.
