Description

The scenic beauty of the sunny vineyards, the wooded hillsides and the variety of cultural sights with the nice villages and their pretty half-timbered houses attract many visitors, from art lovers, hikers, wine connoisseurs to gourmets.

The icing on the cake, however, are the many small winding roads that connect all these attractions and make it a pleasure for all senses for every motorcyclist. Where not only the way is the goal, but always connects new destinations and then the way in between again can not be far enough. Surely you too will say afterwards, I'll come back to the Vosges, with these cols and curves, simply to fall in love with. Voila.

You can hardly arrange a motorcycle holiday more beautifully. You can only envy our Alsatian neighbours for this and you too will fall in love with Alsace (it also happened to Goethe).

Tour description:

Day 1: Individual arrival in Itterswiller (France).

If required, pick up of the rental motorcycle, getting to know each other and briefing

Day 2: The Northern Vosges

Via Saverne we ride to the Northern Vosges and visit la Petite-Pierre. The cave dwellings of Grauftal are another stop on the way to Arzviller on the Rhine-Marne Canal with its boat lift. After a detour to the Rocher de Dabo rock, visible from afar, the Col du Donon is another destination before we continue via Struthof and past the Neuntelstein towards our hotel. (... approx 270km)

Day 3: The western Vosges foothills

Today the focus is not so much on the destinations, but rather on the routes in between. If fox and hare greet each other, this can happen on these less frequented side roads. The villages are very different from those east of the Vosges and have their own charm. Stops to mention would be: Col du Donon, to the west, through the vast forests of the western foothills of the Vosges to Lac Pierre Percée. Col de la Chipotte, Col du Ht Jacques and Col de Steige are just some of the passes we cross before turning to dinner. (... approx 210km)

Day 4: St Odile and High King's Castle

Mont Ste-Odile, which the Alsatians like to call their national shrine, and on which, long before the monastery, the Celts had already built a sanctuary in 1000 BC, we will first head for and then take one of those great detours to the second largest and at the same time only completely restored castle in Alsace, the Hoch-Königsburg. Riquewihr, the pretty winegrowing town with its well-preserved medieval townscape, which likes to call itself a pearl on the Route de Vin, is next on our route today. Of course, here again a whole series of cols are part of the program. (... approx 200km)

Day 5: Route des Crêtes

The Route des Crêtes is undoubtedly a dream road, a panoramic road that mostly follows the ridge of the Vosges and always offers magnificent views, sometimes to the south, sometimes into the Rhine valley or to the west, and in the course of which such famous names as Grand Ballon or Col de la Schlucht appear. (... approx 300km)

Day 6: Trois Ballons

On this tour we will discover a larger section of the Alsatian Route du Vin and then connect the three Belches, the small Belchen (1267), the big Belchen (1426) and the Alsatian Belchen (1250), in such a way that it is difficult to say which is the goal ( the way or..?) (... ca 320km)

Day 7: Departure day

After about 1250km you can probably imagine why it is called: Biking, like God in France (or something like that). Nevertheless, it is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye and everyone starts their individual journey home.

The riders with rental motorcycles return to the rental company together.
