Day 1: Individual arrival in Colmar

Welcome to the Alsace wine capital. Colmar receives the visitors to its picturesque streets and alleyways with much charm and flair. Use the time for a wander through Alsace's third largest town and enjoy your first glass of Muscat or Riesling in a traditional "winstub". Reserved rental bicycles are parked at the hotel ready for you.

Day 2: Trip to Wine Villages, approx. 60 km

A trip into the heart of Alsace. Since 1982, France has distinguished its most beautiful historic villages with the "Les plus beaux villages" award: Riquewihr and Eguisheim, which you visit today, both bear this title. Don't miss having a closer look at the historic walls and fortifications and immersing yourself in Alsace history.

Day 3: Trip to Breisach, approx. 70 km

After biking through vineyards, you now pedal through level countryside to the Rhine. The meshed up corn you can see is not feed, but is designated for the chemicals industry in Basel. Along the Rhine are the two sister towns of Neuf-Brisach and Breisach. The impressive fortifications were built by Vauban, Ludwig XIV's military engineer. Back in France, you cycle along very typically French canals with countless locks.

Day 4: Trip to Strasbourg, approx. 25 km + train ride

What would a visit to Alsace be without a trip to the European capital? In addition to the many political institutions here, Strasbourg is known for its charming historic quarter. For its wonderfully intact "Grand-Ile", the town was awarded a World Heritage title in 1988. Strasbourg cathedral, with its almost 160 m high north tower, can be seen and identified as the town's landmark from afar.

Day 5: Individual departure

After breakfast, your cycling holiday in Alsace comes to an end. We would be happy to extend your holiday by adding an extra night.
