Cycling Holidays in Alsace
Atmospheric, authentic and colourful.
Perfect for...discovering a hidden gem which
even the French don’t know about.
2014 commemorates 100 years since the start of WWI. During this time, Alsace has crossed borders four times between Germany and France. 100 years of Alsatian history 1914-2014 can be discovered as part of our regular Alsace regional cycling routes.
For those of you interested in WWII D-Day landings, please see our Normandy page for cycling options.A unique part of France, the villages tumble over and into each other. Each village more colourful than the last, and every building, however humble, bedecked with flowers. The wine route follows a narrow corridor at the base of the hills, in and out of valleys, in and out of vineyards, between the Vosges and the Rhine plain. Old farm tracks running between the vines have been transformed into cycle routes. Cyclists can head into the hills to visit castles, forests and ancient battle grounds, or follow the plain and gorge on a surfeit of pretty villages and Michelin starred restaurants.
Our holidays start at *** Auberge Ramstein with its own pool and vineyard in the flower filled village of Scherwiller.
All routes between the hotels are Grade 1 cycling along the valley. But you have the option of excursions, Grade 2 and 3, into the hills where you can visit castles and enjoy the views.
