EuroVelo 15: From the source of the Rhine to its mouth in the North Sea

"The Rhine combines every quality a river can exhibit. The rapidity of the Rhone, the breadth of the Loire, the rocks of the Meuse, the sinuosity of the Seine, the translucency of the Somme, the historical reminiscences of the Tiber, the regal dignity of the Danube, the mysterious influence of the Nile, the golden sands of the glittering streams of the New World, the phantoms of some Asiatic stream" - Victor Hugo.

Suitable for cyclists of all fitness levels and abilities, the Rhine Cycle Route runs along one of the longest rivers in Europe.  From the Swiss Alps to the North Sea, the Rhine has fostered a cultural and economic dialogue between the Alpine arc and Northern Europe for over 2000 years.  Explore the beauty of this river landscape and the picturesque towns and villages lining its banks, a number of which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Go for a stroll or a bike ride along the cycling route following the course of the Rhine. Welcome to the Eurovelo 15 website - the Rhine Cycle Route

The Rhine Cycle Route EuroVelo 15 in 2017

2017 will be influenced by the 200th anniversary of the bicycle. When Karl von Drais made the first ride on his invention called “Laufmaschine” (literally “running machine”) on June 12, 1817 through Mannheim, a town along the Rhine Cycle Route EuroVelo 15, he laid the ground stone for a new era of mobility. In the meantime, the “Laufmaschine” has developed into a modern bicycle and has become a vital everyday mode of transportation for many people around the world.
