R01 Round trip Wissembourg

Citadelle de Bitche
Alsace is located in the far north-east of France, between the mountains of the Vosges and the Rhine. In the past, France and Germany often changed their money when it came to this area. Then it belonged to Germany again, then to France again. You still notice that. The region still has many German (own) niceties. The hearty German food, the dialect and the many flower balconies, they all refer to the other side of the Rhine.

Wissembourg is a town with a lot of atmosphere, churches, beautiful streets and half-timbered houses. In Wissembourg, the north of the Vosges, this route starts through the wooded area. Here the curves are clear and the landscape is somewhat flatter, excellent conditions for relaxed touring. Enjoy with a capital G. The route mainly takes beautiful roads through the woods, past fields, streams and now and then a village. Then another piece of through connecting road. In this route, among others, Col du Pfaffenschlick and Col du Pigeonnier.

Along the way you can take a look, and of course take some pictures at Fort Casso, which was part of the Maginot defense line from the second world war. You can have lunch en route at La Table Paysonne in Volmunster, you are then driving for 3 hours. And also in Bitche, where you drive around the Citadelle de Bitche, you can stop at various terraces for something to eat and / or drink. Eventually you will reach the hotel again via wooded areas, in the beautiful town of Wissembourg.

As I have ridden most of this route, I rate this route with 4 stars.

About this route collection
This round trip through Alsace and the Vosges Tour includes 3 loop routes and 2 connecting routes.

Charming Alsace and the rugged slopes ensure that you will not soon forget the Vosges. Colorful, atmospheric, curves and challenging cols. Of course, the Grand Ballon should not be missed, but you will also come across some tough mountain passes. Great to steer during the day and enjoy the French delicacies in the evening.

Bon voyage.
