The Rhine

Castles, cathedrals, and medieval villages

Return to medieval times as you travel along the highway of the Middle Ages! You will bike northerly from Basel, Switzerland along the Rhine River as it marks the border with France, then with Germany - sharpen your skills in several languages as you cross from one country to the other, perhaps several times in one afternoon! This fabled waterway carries fascinating boat traffic as it wends north, cutting through rugged gorges and beautiful farmland. The small cities and towns are welcoming and retain their beauty, character and traditions.

In addition, there are dozens of castles, from fortresses to fairy tales, so there will be plenty of opportunities for sightseeing. The route occasionally takes you away from the water, for ventures into the countryside or along the top of the dike, staying at hostels or a gasthaus. Tiny villages with steep red-tiled roofs and half-timbered houses are great places to stop at the local boulangerie or pastry shop. Strasbourg's mighty cathedral soars over the skyline but is cool and mysterious inside. The 55 mile Rhine Gorge between Mainz and Koblenz is one of Europe's most beautiful cycling routes, with castles even built in the river! Germany is a leader in promoting cycling as the best way to experience their beautiful countryside, so enjoy! The trip closes in Bonn, home of Beethoven and the Bonn Summer Festival..
