  • famille Level family

This stage runs along the towpath by the Canal du Rhône au Rhin. The way is punctuated by c.20 locks and by characterful churches, such as those at Neunkirch or Eschau, before you reach Strasbourg, one of the European Union’s capital cities and claimed as the No.1 town in France for cycling. Strasbourg also boasts one of the finest old centres on the continent, overseen by an exquisitely decorated cathedral. Thanks to the wealth and density of its heritage, the whole historic centre was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as early as 1988.
