As it leaves Sarrebourg and the Lorraine plateau, the cycle route EuroVelo 5 plunges into the Zorn valley at the inclined plane boat lift at Saint Louis/Arzviller. The lower part of this exceptional structure constitutes the beginning of a cycle trail. Laid out along the tow path of the Marne-Rhine canal, it leads as far as Strasbourg. The Zorn valley, which frames the trail, comes out in Saverne, the gateway to Alsace. The château of the Rohan, the Katz house and the Récollets convent are among the interesting sights in the town. The ride then carries on past numerous locks to Strasbourg and the banks of the Rhine. It goes through Hochfelden, the brewing town, and Brumath, formerly Brocomagus, which was the capital of Alsace in Roman times.
