Day 1:    Arrival in Strasbourg

After check-in, visit the beautiful historic city center. This city is not only very beautiful, but also has a very interesting history being a frontier town. Stroll through the narrow paved cobbled streets and look at the beautiful half-timbered houses with painted, stone gates and intimate courtyards.

Day 2:    Strasbourg - Obernai (37 km)

You’ll leave the inner city of Strasbourg in a pleasant way via a well-indicated bike path. The drive to the south-western town of Obernai leads you through charming villages, along beautiful castles and winding vineyards to the beginning of the 'Route du Vin'. Enjoy delicious Alsatian cuisine in one of the many restaurants in charming Obernai.

Day 3:    Obernai - Riquewihr (49 km)

You are on your way to Riquewihr, a medieval town, located in the heart of the Alsatian wine region. This wonderful wine village is counted as 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France' (or 'the most beautiful villages of France'). The combination of her beautiful architecture and world-famous wines gave Riquewihr the nickname 'The Pearl of Alsace'.

Day 4:    Riquewihr - Colmar (35 km)

Visit beautiful Turckheim, a walled and fortified town. In any event, take a walk along the many halftimbered houses, which are typical of Alsace. Bike along scenic wine villages like Kaysersberg and end your ride in Colmar. You can make this cycling day more challenging by making an extra loop through the area with the five castles.
