An easy cycling holiday of the southern Black Forest, discovering some of Germany’s most celebrated countryside. It’s an easy-paced journey that follows a former railway line for much of the way and also takes in a wonderfully, scenic section of the Upper Rhine. This enjoyable, circular cycling route starts and finishes in the handsome city of Freiburg.
Your circular journey will take you through fantastic forest scenery, into the Wutach Valley, to the banks of the Rhine and wine growing Markgräflerland. You’ll visit fascinating Roman remains, charming riverside villages, the lively old town of Basel, thermal spa towns and romantic castles – the southern Black Forest has it all.
You don’t need to be super-fit for this gentle cycling tour. In fact, most of the route is actually downhill, apart from a few minor hills in the forest itself. You’ll be riding on paved cycle paths mainly as well as some quiet country lanes so traffic will be minimal.
