Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary

Day 1: Individual arrival in Freiburg

The tour begins in Freiburg, Germany’s warmest town. Look out for the “Bächle” – the small water-filled rills along most streets and alleyways that give this town its own special flair.

Day 2: Freiburg – Bonndorf, approx. 40 km + train ride

You’ll soon be immersed in the charming countryside of the Black Forest. Just about 10 km on from Freiburg, we recommend getting the train in Kirchzwarten to Titisee (not included in price) – which will help you avoid almost all metres of altitude on this tour! Passing the typical Black Forest houses, you cycle through beautiful countryside to Bonndorf.

Day 3: Bonndorf – Waldshut-Tiengen, approx. 50 km

If you want to explore the Wutach ravine, one of the last wild riverscapes, you should book an extra night in Bonndorf. On this section you cycle along a plateau to Wutachtal valley and then on to Waldshut-Tingen, 500 m further down along the Rhine. The route is cycled practically without any effort, downhill to soon reach today’s destination, Waldshut-Tiengen, right on the Swiss border.

Day 4: Waldshut-Tiengen – Rheinfelden – Basel, approx. 50 km + train ride

You cycle further on downstream, via Laufenburg to Bad Säckingen, where you’ll find Europe’s longest wooden, roofed bridge. Have a stop here – there are two very special museums you can visit: The Müllmuseum (garbage museum) and a museum about the famous “Trumpeter from Bad Säckingen”. Following the northern bank of the Rhine, you pedal on to Rheinfelden and from there your route takes you to Basel by train.

Day 5: Basel – Badenweiler / Müllheim, approx. 50 km

You leave Basel, on the border to three countries, and will see the Istein Klotz from afar – which used to be located right on the Rhine and has always been a site for castles and forts. At the edge of the Black Forest, you cycle through small spa towns, which all draw on the healing waters of the area.

Day 6: Badenweiler / Müllheim – Freiburg, approx. 45 km

You cycle through the vineyards of the Markgräflerland – up to the right the Black Forest and to the left the Vosges Mountains. Freiburg is Germany’s warmest and most southern city. It has its own particular charm – look out for the small water-filled rills along most streets and alleyways. From the Schlossberg, you have a great view over the town and the surrounding area.

Day 7: Individual departure or extension of stay

After breakfast, you start your individual return journey home or extend your stay.
