50,96 km cycling route from Turckheim to Cernay

The southern half of the Véloroute du Vignoble d'Alsace is wilder, providing beautiful views of vine-covered slopes and up to the Ballons d'Alsace, the highest summits of the Haut-Vosges Mountains. There are several unmissable stops, such as Eguisheim, Alsace’s famed circular village and a member of the association of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, or Guebwiller, winning awards for its floral displays and declared a Territoire Vélo by the French Cycling Federation. Cernay and Thann are the final places to visit along the Route des Vins d'Alsace, below the protective gaze of Le Vieil Armand, with its national First World War monument atop a spectacular rocky outcrop.
