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’.

@France @Germany @Switzerland

Most of the time the Rhine forms the natural border between France and Germany, between French savoir-vivre and German coziness. The past hasn't always been that peaceful, as you can see along the route, finding yourself often between former French and German fortifications. The region has nonetheless been enjoyable, passing through several historic sites - from the Swiss Basel via Freiburg to the European city of Strasbourg, by Karlsruhe to the picturesque city of Speyer and its cathedral.
