This EuroVelo 6 stage takes you on through the French region of Alsace. The Canal du Rhône au Rhin (the Rhône-Rhine Canal) provides the main thread to Mulhouse and well beyond. On this stage, you can’t miss the impressive Niffer Lock, nor the massive Hardt Forest. This stretch is calm and car-free. Take care entering the town of Mulhouse, where there are works.

Hydroélectric station to Kembs

Don't miss one of the first hydroelectric plants in France, with a story full of twists and turns: destroyed during the Second World War, it was rebuilt and went back into operation in 1945.

The Le Corbusier lock to Kembs

The control tower of this lock is worth the trip! Built in 1960 using a design made by renowned architect Le Corbusier, this is now listed as an historical monument.
