This tour takes you from Strasbourg to Colmar, through the sloping valleys of the wine producing region of the Alsace where wine has been produced for over a 1,000 years. While wine and gastronomy is the focus there is also spectacular natural scenery and historical landmarks and cultural treasures at every turn.

This tour mostly follows the cycle path of the Alsace Wine Route (established in 1953), which is built upon old railway tracks and paths between the vineyards, abbeys, medieval castles and farmland.
