Signposts indicate EuroVelo 15 all the way along this stage.
On the stretch up to Artzenheim, the way alternates between quiet roads shared with motorized traffic and dedicated cycle paths. Then it’s a greenway all along the towpath beside the Canal du Rhône au Rhin up to Strasbourg. The surfaces are good all the way. There are lovely shaded sections in the ‘green corridor’ between Artzenheim and Boofzheim.
There are cycle links into Germany at various points.
