This comprehensive cycle touring guidebook to the Rhine Cycle Route. This guide offers a detailed stage-by-stage description of this epic 1380km route along the Rhine, one of Europe's great rivers, which travels through six countries on its way from Switzerland to the North Sea. On its way, the Rhine Cycle Route passes the remains of Roman cities, medieval towns, castles, cathedrals, palaces, great cities of the industrial revolution and relics of 20th-century warfare. And it travels through a great range of stunning scenery.
On this 1378km route you will cycle 27 stages through six countries; Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, France and the Netherlands, to end at Hoek van Holland (Hook of Holland). Each stages averages just over 50km, and itineraries can be adjusted according to each cyclist's needs.
Starting in the Swiss Alps with high mountains, deep glacial valleys and gorges it soon reaches Europe's third largest lake, the Bodensee, and its greatest mainland waterfall. After Basel, the Rhine becomes a broad river, where straightening, flood dykes, locks and dams have created the world's busiest river trading artery. The middle Rhine, between Bingen and Koblenz, forces its way through the narrow rocky Rhine gorge lined by romantic castles perched above Germany's finest vineyards. The cycling is easy, downhill and along dedicated cycle routes. The countries visited are very cycle-friendly and the waymarking is excellent. And the whole trip can be completed in two weeks by a fit cyclist.
A full set of GPX files for the route described in this guide is now available free to download to owners of the book.
