  • EuroVelo 15, Alsace – Kembs Neuf-Brisach

    EuroVelo 15, Alsace – Kembs Neuf-Brisach [41.2 km]

    EuroVelo 15 continues through Ottmarsheim. This village’s rare octagonal Romanesque church is one of the most famous in the Upper Rhine. Further on, at Fessenheim, a museum focuses on the work of Victor Schoelcher; his family was from these parts and he was central in having slavery abolished across French territories in 1848. The last stop on the stage, Neuf-Brisach was the last fortified town designed by Louis XIV’s great military architect, Vauban. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its octagonal form presents the most accomplished example of Ancien Régime defence.
