Then you will join the Route des Crêtes and its legendary passes: the Schlucht, the Bonhomme to reach finally the Vosges moutains, your starting point.
As a European crossroad, Alsace invites you to travel with a motorcycle. The legendary Alsace wine route winds between the Rhine plain and Ballons des Vosges, a region dotted with colorful, picturesque villages. You can enjoy a late harvest Gewurztraminer or a Sylvaner, dive into history by visiting the majestic castle of Haut-koenigsbourg, or lose yourself in the cobbled streets of the old city. But what will really turn your head will undoubtedly be riding the Ridge Road. Located at the heart of the Vosges, this imposing route from the First World War era passes over the 1424 meter high Grand Ballon and the Schlucht pass, while offering views of lakes and forests. Breathtaking !.
