Cycling: Three countries cycle path

Stroll through three worlds

The Dreiland cycle route between France, Germany and Switzerland unites different worlds. In Basel, modern culture meets the lively banks of the Rhine. Hilly expanses await the bike traveler in the Tafeljura and Markgräflerland. The small towns of Liestal, Rheinfelden and Lörrach are united by the German language, after which you cross the Rhine again and visit Mulhouse: formerly the center of textile printing, today a lively city and the cultural heart of the region. The journey then becomes quieter as you ride through the "Sundgau" - small villages await you on the return journey to Switzerland and in the pilgrimage site of Mariastein you can look forward to a contemplative last night. Afterwards, the Dreiland cycle path will take you back to Basel. Welcome back!

Tour character

With the exception of the first and last stages, there are some hills to overcome on each day. The routes are well signposted and easy to find. In Germany and around urban centers, there are short sections with a bit more traffic. In sum, a decidedly diverse cycling trip for experienced cyclists.
