Canals & intimate rivers
I begin / Family
The Rhine Véloroute, EuroVelo 15, links the Rhine’s source in Switzerland to its North Sea estuary in Holland. The route runs close to the great river for over 1,320km. The part in the French region of Alsace covers c.180km, from Huningue, near Swiss Basel, to Lauterbourg. It mostly runs beside the Canal du Rhône au Rhin, but in parts runs by the Rhine itself, frontier and link between France and Germany. Discover UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Alsace’s historic capital, Strasbourg, or Neuf-Brisach, its citadel designed by Louis XIV’s military genius, Vauban. Enjoy Alsace’s romantic Rhine side.
