  • ITINERARY:
  • Day 1: WELCOME TO THE RHINE VALLEY
  • We meet you to Basel-Mulhouse airport at 2 pm before taking you to our hotel in the center of Basel. We take advantage of this first day to adjust our bikes and talk about the tour and explore Basel, the third largest city in Switzerland by its population. This place is a city in full cultural turmoil. Its forty museums, its university, the oldest in Switzerland, and its taste for design and contemporary art in a trendy city, dynamic, but also aware of the wealth of its heritage and standing.
  • Day 2: BASEL LOOP
  • This getaway full of surprises around Basel follows empty back roads of the Baselbiet area. The change of scenery is on the agenda of this tour.
  • You will start through the old town along the Rhine. Then the path rises through green hills and forests, In Liestal, the capital of the Canton of Basel-Landschaft, a visit to the lively historic old town is a must. This ride is particularly interesting in May when the many open-wind trees are in bloom.
  • Day 3: BASEL > FREIBURG IM BREISGAU
  • Our cycling trip leads us today through the Markgraferland, nicknamed the Tuscany of Germany for its mild and sunny climat, and part of the Baden Wine Route. It runs through a welcoming, hilled landscape composed mainly of meadows, orchards and vineyards.
  • Later on we reach Freiburg-im-Breisgau, which exudes a unique sweetness of life, at the foot of the Black Forest hills, with its village tunes with cobbled streets in the old center. Capital of ecology, a pioneer in solar energy and energy-saving architecture, the city seems at the same time full of future.
  • Day 4: FREIBURG > TITISEE
  • The Black Forest Panoramic Route is a mountain road that runs mainly along the green peaks of the Black Forest. From the beginning, you will have to conquer the curves that follow each other up to the Kandelpass (1242 m with a breathtaking view at the top). This itinerary includes many views of the Black Forest valleys, which we will discover from one detour to another. After all, it is not always a question of getting from point A to point B as quickly as possible: you have to get there in the best possible way! You will finish your ride at Titisee, the largest natural lake in the Black Forest unless you want to ride back to Freiburg.
  • Day 5: FREIBURG > COLMAR
  • The Kaiserstuhl, a small volcanic massif, called “throne of the emperor” is famous for its sunshine. As a result, it has become a land of choice for fruit trees and vines. Award-winning viniculture is the dominant characteristic of this region. With picturesque wine villages, quaint little towns and breathtaking panorama, today’s route is a real hidden cycling treasure.
  • Day 6: COLMAR REST DAY
  • Whether you visit Colmar on foot or by boat on the canals of “Little Venice”, its fountains, its half-timbered houses, its geraniums balconies say everything about its membership of Alsace … But Colmar can not be summed up to its postcard décor. Cultural hub and Gastronomic step, it is also a good starting point towards the wine route. Optional ride possible.
  • Day 7: COLMAR > RIBEAUVILLÉ
  • Today we enter the heart of the Alsace Wine Route. You will sail in an ocean of vineyards and through some of the most beautiful villages of France: Eiguisheim, Kayersberg, Riquewihr and Ribeauvillé. These magnificent villages have for centuries combined the quality of their architecture with that of their world-renowned wines. Riquewihr, one of Alsace’s most popular places to visit, is an “open-air museum” that has managed to preserve its authenticity, behind its surrounding walls that only vines now besiege.
  • Tonight and tomorrow we spend the night in Ribeauvillé, ideally located to explore the most beautiful roads and villages in this region of character.
  • Day 8: RIBEAUVILLÉ LOOP
  • This morning we tackle the slopes of the Chateau du Haut-Koenigsbourg. This surprising stone vessel dominates the immense horizon from the top of its 750 m of altitude and made it possible to monitor all the roads crossing Alsace.
  • And to recover from our emotions, we stop at the Cave de Ribeauvillé. We take the time to taste and appreciate the finesse and elegance of Alsatian wines: Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Gewurztramine.
  • Day 9: RIBEAUVILLÉ > STRASBOURG
  • For this last ride, we bike to Strasbourg along the Alsace Wine Route and through Obernai, an essential stop. We can also detour and encounter in the middle of the forest the holiness of Mont Saint Odile.
  • Seat of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, Strasbourg is one of the two European “capitals”. An avant-garde city since the Middle Ages, it has succeeded in aesthetics and environmental protection, thanks to the choice of trams and bicycle paths, and has maintained a human size around its cathedral Gothic and its old quarter La Petite France.
