The unique landscape of the Upper Rhine Valley offers countless opportunities. Cycle at leisure along the Rhine, explore on foot the gentle vineyard slopes in South Palatinate or make the most of the extensive mountain bike trails that crisscross the entire region. The Doubs River in the Jura Mountains with its romantic natural scenery and dramatic views is perfect for a canoeing tour. Winter sports fans are also well catered for: the Vosges and the Black Forest’s highest peak, the Feldberg, are great destinations for all skiing enthusiasts. On the roads, touristic routes such as the Black Forest’s Schwarzwald Hochstraße and the Route des Crêtes offer their own unique panoramas, while on the rails heritage railway lines provide a nostalgic look at the region as they wind their way through tunnels and over viaducts.
The numerous nature parks allow visitors a closer view of the region’s animal kingdom. Even exotic animals can be encountered in the zoos at Mulhouse, Karlsruhe and Basel.
