35,10 km cycling route from Cernay to Mulhouse

The EuroVelo 5 route leaves behind the Véloroute du Vignoble d'Alsace and the vine-covered slopes to cross the Alsace Plain and its potassium basin for the town of Mulhouse. Close to the well-flowered town of Ensisheim, Ungersheim boasts two unmissable sites: the Ecomusée d'Alsace and the Parc du Petit Prince, a delight for young and old. As to Mulhouse, combining tradition and modernity, it has major museums linked to its industries, hence its nickname of ‘European capital of technological museums’! The town has also been designated a Territoire Vélo, given provisions for cyclists.
