Your cycling trip in Alsace :

From the Alsatian capital, you cycle along cycle paths and small roads in the heart of the vineyard. You will discover the essential villages with half-timbered houses with typical charm: Riquewihr, Kaysersberg, Ribeauvillé. From Little France in Strasbourg to Colmar’s “Little Venice”, this is a rich and varied circuit between cities of character, panoramas and gastronomy.

Day 1 : Arrival in Strasbourg


Take the time to discover Strasbourg, the European capital of Alsace with a rich and dense heritage. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, do not miss the city’s must-sees: the lovely district of Petite France, Notre-Dame Cathedral or the Covered Bridges. The European quarter is also worth a visit.

You leave Strasbourg by the secure bike path along the river. Your quiet route take the cycle path along the Bruche canal, one of the prettiest Green Ways in Alsace to Molsheim, a small wine village with a century-old charm. Then in Rosheim, do not miss the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, one of the jewels of Alsatian Romanesque architecture. You spend the night in the heart of the historic center of Obernai, with its typically Alsatian charm.

Day 3 : Obernai – Sélestat | 34 km


You continue on the Alsace wine route. The route allows you to discover many charming villages including Andlau and its Romanesque abbey or Mittelbergheim, ranked among the most beautiful villages in France.

Day 4 : Sélestat – Kaysersberg | 26 km


A short stage rich in discoveries! At the bottom of the massive castle of Haut-Koenisbourg, your route takes cycle paths and small roads to show you the essentials of the Alsace Wine Route with wine villages and their colorful houses: Bergheim, Ribeauvillé. As you wish, you can stroll through several villages classified among the most beautiful in France such as Riquewihr or the less known Hunawihr.
