This easy EuroVelo 6 stage links Alsace to the neighbouring region of Franche-Comté. Along the Canal du Rhône au Rhin, you pass through the Seuil de Valdieu (a gap in the Vosges and Jura Mountains, and dividing line between the Rhine and Saône river basins), the 12 locks near Dannemarie a highlight. This stretch gives you a flavour of southern Alsace’s Sundgau area and its lively little ports.
