The French section of EuroVelo 15 passes through some wonderfully varied Alsatian countryside in the Haut Rhin and Bas Rhin departments. The route is mainly located on flat, traffic free infrastructure and is therefore ideal for all age groups. It connects the fortified town of Neuf-Brisach (a UNESCO World Heritage Site); the attractive towns of Mulhouse or Colmar (easy to reach along connecting cycle paths); and the cycling city of Strasbourg, one of the ‘capitals of Europe’.
