Suitable for everyone


Part of a cross-border trail which arrives from Offenburg, the Bruche cycle trail leaves Strasbourg to go south along a cycle track laid out along the river ILL, which fl ows through the Alsatian capital. The trail then follows the Bruche canal, which was built in 1681 by Vauban to transport the red sandstone of the Vosges for the construction of the fortifi cations of Strasbourg. As many as 950 boats were recorded on the canal in 1782 and it was in use until 1938. After 19.7 km and 11 old locks, we reach Molsheim, formerly the seat of the bishopric, on the Alsatian Wine Road cycle trail.
