Description

One of the most picturesque regions of France, Alsace is also one of the most cycle-friendly. Designated bike paths and quiet country back-roads provide a perfect passage along the Rhine passing Hansel and Gretel style houses overlooked by imposing medieval castles. There is plenty of opportunity to explore the cobblestone streets of quaint villages and marvel at the impressive Romanesque and Baroque churches. Gastronomic delights are plentiful in this corner of France and you can sample some of Alsace's finest produce as you travel through undulating farmland, orchards and vineyards. The unusual and stunning 'balloons' or round topped hills provide beautiful vistas of the Alsatian region. This itinerary soaks up the relaxed and jovial atmosphere of what can only be described as a wine-lovers' wonderland.
