The Colmar canal was inaugurated in 1864. It was built under the pressure of the industrialists who had suff ered a set-back when the original path of the Rhône-Rhine canal was diverted by the Army’s Corps of Engineers to take in the citadel of Neuf-Brisach. Today, it is used for leisure activities and, after crossing the river Ill, ends its journey in the charming river port of Colmar. Along the Colmar Canal, you’ll be spoilt by incredibly quaint and rustic décor! As of Artzenheim, and if your legs will let you, you can take the Rhine Véloroute (EV15) up until Andermatt in Switzerland or until Rotterdam in Nederland!
