EUROVELO 15 - THE RHINE CYCLE ROUTE

EuroVelo 15 - The Rhine cycle route - Huningue >> Lauterbourg

From Huningue to Lauterbourg, the EuroVelo 15 passes through Huningue, runs along the Hunningue canal and the Alsace Little Camargue Reserve, cuts through Hardt forest, passes close to Ottmarsheim and its famous Romanesque church and then on to Fessenheim, hometown of Victor Schoelcher, to meet up with Neuf-Brisach, the citadel built by Vauban, listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, and then continues to Artzenheim. It is a “Nature” route which combines discovering pleasant sites along the Rhine, the canal and the forest edge, while off ering the cycling tourist the opportunity to visit the great Haut-Rhin towns of Mulhouse and Colmar, lying close by the cycle route and which can be accessed via cycle tracks. From Marckolsheim, the EuroVelo 15 passes through several villages typical of the Ried plain, before joining up with the Rhone-Rhine Canal. Cycling towards Strasbourg, the ride takes you past about 20 locks. And the fascinating churches you espy, for example in Neunkirch, Plobsheim and Eschau, are all open invitations to explore. Once past Strasbourg, the capital of Europe with many exciting places to visit, the cycle route takes you through the market garden town of La Robertsau and by Pourtalès Chateau and then follows the highwater dike to La Wantzenau. From here, you can explore a whole series of charming villages with traditional houses once home to fi shermen and boatmen. The site of the large locks at Gambsheim with its fish ladder leads you on to the banks of the river Rhine which you come back to after Sessenheim, where Goethe used to stay, at Beinheim where the canalised section of the Rhine comes to an end. Along the high-water dyke, through Rhineland forests and nature reserves, like Munchhausen, the trail reaches Lauterbourg, an old fortified town built by Vauban, the last stage of the journey in Alsace
