I cycle often
La Route des Vins d'Alsace (or Alsace Wine Route) wends its way along the eastern slopes of the Vosges Mountains. Running parallel to it, the Véloroute du Vignoble d'Alsace (or Alsace Vineyards Cycle Route), crosses picture-postcard landscapes, with ruined castles, flowery villages, Romanesque abbeys, orchards, and a sea of vines. The northern part of the cycle route starts at Marlenheim and goes up to Châtenois, passing via Molsheim, Rosheim, Obernai, Barr and Dambach-la-Ville, under the protective gaze of the Mont Sainte-Odile and the Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg.
