Push your pedals this way…
It’s easy to fall in love with Alsace – home to Colmar’s romantic ‘Little Venice’, the famous Alsace Wine Road and France’s most cycling-friendly city, Strasbourg.
Explore canal paths and cliff-top châteaux like the über-impressive Haut Koenigsbourg Castle. Enjoy vineyard vistas and views of the Vosges hills. Ride into amazing fairytale villages like Riquewihr and Ribeauvillé, past medieval gateways and bell towers. Alsace has rich pickings all round, but nothing beats a glass of rich, local ‘Gewurztrauminer’.
Our self-guided cycling holidays and short breaks in Alsace feature both linear and circular routes and include hotel to hotel and single centre cycling tours with some extra special treats in Strasbourg.
With over 1000 wine producers, breath-taking castle backdrops and countless fairytale villages, it’s no wonder Alsace boasts the best-loved ‘Route des Vins’ in the whole of France. Cycling here goes down a treat too, just like the local nectar. Follow easy canal paths and tiny lanes along gentle vineyard slopes to link Strasbourg with the Stork towers of Ribeauvillé and the timeless vineyard villages of the ‘Grand Crus’, then head back from colourful Colmar by train (ticket included in tour price), or cycle a final canal path back into the city if you prefer. A chance to savour the flavour of the place, drink in the stunning Vosges hills, views of woodlands and vineyards and even enjoy a refreshing trip around ‘Little Venice’ in the colourful town of Colmar.
In Strasbourg, the Obernai area, the Riquewihr area and Colmar.
Alsace is brimful of delicious discoveries. From golden Gewurztraminers to sophisticated Sylvaners, Muscats, Rieslings and a whole colour palette of Pinots, its wines are the stuff of legend – and so too its fairytale villages, ruined castles and vineyard vistas. Sandwiched between the wooded hills of the Vosges and the Rhine plain, this is superb cycling country packed with must-see places such as Colmar - ‘Little Venice’; medieval Riquewihr; Haut Koenigsburg Castle; flower-filled Sélestat and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Strasbourg. It also has more Michelin-starred restaurants than anywhere outside Paris – irresistible!
In Strasbourg (2 nights), the Sélestat area, Colmar, Guebwiller, Riquewihr area and Obernai.
