The vines and traditions of Alsace by bike

 

 

Experience a bike trip in the heart of traditional and picturesque Alsace, that of postcards but also that more unusual and unknown. This cycling holiday invites you to discover Romanesque, Gothic or Baroque architecture, museums, forests in the Vosges, Ried peat bogs and vineyards sparkling under the sun. You will be charmed by the warm welcome of Alsatians, the liveliness of traditions, the gastronomy (authentic, refined and prestigious), and the aromas of Alsace wines!

Highlights of the stay:

  • The cities of Strasbourg and Colmar
  • The Alsace Wine Route and its villages typical
  • The beautiful cycle paths of the Route des Alsace wines and along the Canal
