Bâle
Mulhouse, designated a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire for its rich industrial past, is known as ‘the French Manchester’. It boasts exceptional museums, including the famed Cité de l'Automobile and Cité du Train. Heading south, the EuroVelo 5 route leads into the Pays de Saint-Louis, an area where three countries meet – France, Germany and Switzerland. Along the way, there are several points of interest, such as Alsace’s Petite Camargue, the Fondation Fernet-Branca and the Parc des Eaux Vives. At Huningue, the footbridge named the Passerelle des Trois Pays marks the end of your cycling adventure through Alsace. Switzerland and the lively town of Basel lie ahead!
