Experience the Beauty of Colmar
Discover the small town of Colmar France and the Alsace landscape on this 2 and a half hour cycling experience. At first, you will be met in a central meeting point. Here, begin your bike tour through the streets and historic center lined with 13th century timbered houses and 16th century façades. Depending on your guide you might pass in front of some of the following landmarks of the town: the Pfister house, Saint Martin Church, the Unterlinden museum where the Isenheim Altarpiece is located or the house of Auguste Bartholdi, maker of the statue of liberty. You might even hear about the itinerary followed by the Tour de France that passed through this year.
After having visited Colmar, head out to the Alsace countryside and reach the Alsace wine producing area. Your next visit will be the small authentic village of Eguisheim. Here, there will be plenty of photo opportunities and a small break before continuing on through the vineyards of the Alsace region. By Wettolsheim, you will then finally return to Colmar for the end of the tour.
During this activity it is possible to ask for road bikes or mountain bikes but we strongly recommend asking for Ebikes that will take you smoothly through the roads of Alsace. Other cycling day trips are possible upon request so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have other wishes.
