Bike Tours in the Rhine Floodlands Jul 20, 2017
A network of marked long-distance bike trails leads through the floodlands on both sides of the Rhine along the whole Upper Rhine Valley. The „Pamina“ trail is a German-French cooperation and continues into Alsace.

The trails are mostly unpaved, thus not suitable for inline skaters, and they are too far out of town to see many hikers. Bikers can cycle along undisturbed.

The main trail runs on top of the Rhine dyke. These few metres higher than the ground widen the view over the lakes and river branches. The forests and the old Rhine branches are natural reserves where birds and amphibia can be observed.

Many side trails lead into the floodland forests. Tours of any length between an hour and several days can be undertaken.

Some lakes further inland, like Epplesee or Neuburgweierer See, allow swimming.

Near Neuburgweier a small ferry that carries pedestrians and bikes crosses the river. From the point of arrival on the Western bank it's only 3 kms to the French border near Lauterbourg.
