Cultural heritage

Old historical town centres with twisting streets, fortified castles overlooking the river, places steeped in history, port towns, economic centres, the Rhine cycle route has some wonderful surprises in store.

  • Wiesbaden: Biebrich Palace

    Built on the banks of the Rhine, this beautiful Baroque building, with its mullion windows and its circular rotunda holding court over the central wing, was constructed between 1700 and 1750 as a residency for the Princes of Nassau. Used nowadays for representation purposes by the state of Hesse, it also houses several government authorities. Outside, lovely walks can be enjoyed under 100-year old trees in the huge park.

  • Rheinau on the Rhine

    Considered as one of the major sacred buildings in Switzerland, the monastery island of Rheinau, placed in a bend in the river downstream from Schaffhausen, houses a magnificent Benedictine abbey. The monastery in late gothic-baroque style, formerly the collegiate church of St Mary, is a wonderful illustration of high Baroque style in Switzerland.

  • Düsseldorf Old Town

    Düsseldorf Old Town. Nicknamed "Little Paris", Düsseldorf is the German capital of fashion. It is also a great place to stop off on the EV15, especially for its historic city centre, which is bursting with international stalls and restaurants.

  • River navigation museum in Offendorf

    An exhibition held on a Freycinet-type of barge rescued from scrapping, restored and renamed “CABRO”, retraces the evolution of river navigation in Alsace and in particular in Offendorf, the largest village of boatmen in the East of France in the 20th century.
