The route of the Green Road
Neuf-Brisach is the next stop on the route. It is the city of Louis XIV the Sun King. Its star-shaped fortifications have survived almost completely to this day, although they were built at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries. Between Neuf-Brisach and Breisach runs the border between France and Germany. Once in Breisach, there are wine and sparkling wine cellars to visit. Freiburg is then the next stop on the journey before continuing into the Dreisamtal. Here in the Black Forest it's all about the places Titisee-Neustadt, Hinterzarten and Loeffingen to get to know. After 365 kilometers, the Route Verte - the Green Road - ends in Donaueschingen.
Hiking stop in the Vosges
Since 1998 there has been a newly developed and signposted cycling and hiking trail. The route of the bike path leads away from the busy roads. You need between three and six days for the route if you cover it by bike. The section of the Rhine plain is pleasant and easy to drive. Public transport can be used for the steeper climbs in the Black Forest and the Vosges.
Eating and Drinking
In the summer months the temperature averages 20 degrees. Even in spring or autumn, the drive along the Green Road can be done very well. It is important not to forget the rain protection, as there are around 14 rainy days a month all year round.
History of the Green Road
The green road makes the cultural heritage of the border region visible. You can experience history, from Roman times to German-French unity, while cycling or driving. Exploring the subject of culture and nature on both sides of the Rhine has been worked out very well and the signage makes it easy to navigate. It is wonderful to discover the rich cultural heritage of the member cities.
