Cyclists have the opportunity to admire our beautiful region and its history through Heritage Touring. You can discover wonderful views and unusual historical monuments! You can follow the banks of the Canal des Vosges taking the cycle route, then pass by small paths to go to the various places of interest we offer.

The surroundings of the Canal des Vosges invite you to take a totally different look at the countryside, the forest and the villages.
