Leaving Strasbourg l'Européenne, you'll take the legendary EuroVelo15 - Véloroute Rhin through the Robertsau Rhine forest before reaching La Wantzenau, Gambsheim, Drusenheim and Seltz, all of which have their sights firmly set on the Rhine. You will then head for the famous pottery village of Betschdorf, then on to Haguenau, city of Barbarossa, following the Sauer Valley cycle route through the Haguenau Exceptional Forest. You will then follow the Moder Valley cycle route as far as Bouxwiller, before entering the Vosges du Nord Nature Park and reaching La Petite Pierre and then Alsace Bossue on small, bucolic roads. You will then join the EuroVelo5 - Via Romea and the peaceful Véloroutes of the Canal de la Sarre and the Marne au Rhin. There are a number of beautiful stops along the way, including the Mittersheim and Stock ponds, the Arzviller inclined plane and the valley of the lock-keepers, before taking a well-deserved break in Saverne, home of the Rohan family. You then head south on the V52 to Marlenheim, where you join the Véloroute du Vignoble d'Alsace. Between a sea of vineyards and orchards, you'll pass through Obernai, Barr, Châtenois, Bergheim, Turckheim, Eguisheim, Rouffach and Guebwiller before reaching Cernay. You will cross the Alsatian potassic basin and then reach Mulhouse and its rich industrial heritage. You'll then set off to discover the Sundgau and Jura regions of Alsace, passing through Altkirch and following the Ill Valley cycle route. You will then make a foray into Swiss territory as far as the dynamic city of Basel. You will then take the Passerelle des Trois Pays to reach France and Saint-Louis. You'll then take the EuroVelo15 - Véloroute Rhin back to your starting point, where you'll discover the typical landscapes of the Alsatian Ried, with several beautiful stops in Kembs, Niffer, Ottmarsheim, Neuf-Brisach (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Marckolsheim and Erstein.
