From Lake Constance to Basel, via the Rhine Falls.

Eurovelo 15 leaves its mountainous section and comes into a flatter, more populous area, but just as attractive. The river has deepened its bed between the Black Forest and the Jura, sometimes wide and slow, other times narrow and rapid, thereby creating varied landscapes sculpted over the passage of time.

Between Lake Constance, a natural jewel flanked by the surrounding gently rolling countryside, and Basel, the cultural centre of the three-border region where Switzerland, France and Germany meet, Eurovélo 15 veers east to west, taking the south bank of the Rhine in Switzerland, and[...] more

switching to the north bank in the German State of Baden-Württemberg. departing Lake Constance, the cycle route first crosses Schaffhouse and its famous Rhine falls, then carries on through towns and villages spanning the river in Germany and Switzerland. On the German side of the Rhine, we find the town of Waldshut-Tiengen, whose ten quarters marry an urban atmosphere with the charm of the countryside.

  • Stein-am-Rhein

    Stein-am-Rhein, known for its old town dating from the Middle Ages with its wonderful half-timbered houses and painted facades, is located at the point where Lake Constance narrows to become the River Rhine again. As it leaves the lower lake, the river heads towards the West and runs through the valleys of the countryside towards Basel.

  • Waldshut-Tiengen.

    Twin towns in the south of the State of Baden-Württemberg, at the foot of the Black Forest, these lies close to the Swiss border. Don't miss Tiengen's castle and its famous "Storchenturm" (Stork Tower), which has become the symbol of the city. Take a stroll down the historic alleyways of Waldshut town centre.

  • 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.

  • Radolfzell am Bodensee

    From a little fishing and wine village, Radolfzell grew over the centuries to become the center of the Untersee region. The resort town, known supra-regionally for the Mettnau-cure, has a lot to offer to the visitors. No wonder, the city looks back at 1.200 years of history. Radolfzell as a place of pilgrimage can be discovered at the end of July, during the ‘Hausherrenfest’, where the city saints, the so called ‘Hausherren’, are being carried around the historic cathedral. Closely related to it as well is the famous Mooser water procession. © Tourismus- und Stadtmarketing Radolfzell, photographer Achim Mende
