What are the interesting stages of this bike tour?

Obernai city

Obernai has a rich historical heritage. Founded in the 7th century, this medieval Alsatian town was shaped by the successive influences of the Romans, local lords and, later, Benedictine monks. Known for its well-preserved architecture and cobbled streets, Obernai’s charm lies in its half-timbered houses and its history rooted in Alsatian winegrowing.
It’s a great place to live, and the many terraces are sure to refresh and quench your thirst.

The Leonardsau gardens

The Leonardsau gardens, once designed by the imperial family of Alsace-Lorraine, reveal a remarkable historical legacy. Nestled around the remarkable Leonardsau castle/manor house, these gardens evoke the elegance of centuries gone by. The estate was once owned by the De Dietrich family.

The green way

The “Portes Bonheur, le chemin des carrières” greenway, an 11-kilometers route along the old railroad line from Rosheim to Saint-Nabor, is an innovative initiative by the Communauté de Communes des Portes de Rosheim. This picturesque and bucolic route, completely cycleable and car-free, allows you to discover the region’s emblematic sites along the way.
You can cycle it for about half its length.

Heiligenstein and its “Klevener d’Heiligenstein” appellation

Klevener d’Heiligenstein is an exceptional white wine, emblematic of Alsace. It is made from a rare grape variety, Savagnin Rose. Its fame stems from its limited production in the Heiligenstein region.
Thirteen communes or inter-communal entities have been strictly delimited, and may be indicated on the label in addition to the AOC Alsace. This is the case of Heiligenstein with “Klevener de Heiligenstein”.
