Day 1: Individual arrival in Strasbourg

Discover this town with its rich German-French history. From the historic quarter, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the avant-garde European institution buildings - there's a lot to explore. Cathedral square with its picturesque half-timbered houses and famous cathedral is one of Europe's most beautiful. Reserved rental bicycles are parked at the hotel ready for you.

Day 2: Strasbourg – Region Sélestat, approx. 25 – 55 km

Your first section on the cycle tour in Alsace takes you to the small town of Sélestat on the Ill. Sélestat is a real insider along the wine route, as its small and winding streets and historic quarter are not overrun with tourists. The huge clock tower and witches tower shape the silhouette of the town and the two churches, St. Georg and Saite-Foy are worth a visit. This pretty town was one of the first to put up signposts in two languages.

Day 3: Sélestat – Colmar, approx. 50 – 65 km

Passing vineyards and green slopes, your route takes you to Colmar. Its listed historic quarter, featuring impressive Gothic churches, awaits your arrival. Old timber-framed houses, that have started to slant over the years, almost lean against each other. Colmar is considered the capital for Alsace wines and is the best place to become acquainted with Alsace cuisine.

Day 4: Colmar – Guebwiller, approx. 35 km

The imposing church Notre-Dame de Guebwiller is the biggest classicist church in Alsace. You will be amazed by the richly decorated pulpit and altarpiece. The large museum dedicated to the works of Theodore Deck gives you insight into Faience art.  Aside from culture, wine is important to Guebwiller. Since 2007, the Alsace winemakers has distinguished special vine locations. Guebwiller is proud to be the only town with four Grand-Cru parcels.

Day 5: Guebwiller – Riquewihr, approx. 50 km

Today, your cycle tour in Alsace takes you up through vineyards. Short inclines are rewarded with long downhill sections. You will be cycling mostly along separate cycle paths, right next to the vines themselves. The countryside is interrupted by small, picturesque wine villages. In Riquewihr you will find yourself in one of the most beautiful villages in France. The Dolder tower is particularly worthwhile. It is a half-timbered tower and used to be part of the town fortifications.

Day 6: Riquewihr – Obernai, approx. 50 km

The easiest way to get an overview of Obernai is by doing a tour of the town wall. In the small town on the Ehn, you can enjoy some more Alsace specialities such as tarte flambée or sauerkraut on your last evening meal. Remember that just because you're in Alsace you don't have to drink wine all the time - the famous Kronenbourg brewery is based in Obernai.

Day 7: Obernai – Strasbourg, approx. 40 km and individual departure, no overnight stay

On your last cycling section, you pass the Canal de la Bruche. It used to convey hundreds of wine barrels to the capital. You head on towards Strasbourg and soon spy the 160 m cathedral tower. Your cycle tour in Alsace comes to an end in the afternoon. If your trip home is a longer one or you would like to spend some more time in Alsace, we would be happy to extend your stay in Strasbourg.
