From Lake Constance along the Upper Rhine
Rhine River: Constance - Freiburg

Tour Description: Self-guided

On this tour, you cycle along the Rhine River from Constance to Freiburg.

Following the Rhine as it leaves Lake Constance on the Swiss shore, you pass small villages with picturesque half-timbered houses. Continuing you will visit the largest waterfall in Europe, the charming town of Eglisau and Laufenburg's historical center, which straddles the Swiss and German side of the Rhine that split into two towns in 1801. Pass the knighthood Castle Beuggen and Rheinfelden, you continue to Basel.

At the tour's end in Freiburg you encounter historic sights at each corner. The Cathedral Square is surrounded by impressive buildings, the tallest of which is the steep-roofed historical Old Merchants’ House with its colorfully adorned bartizans. The most picturesque views of the Old Quarter can be enjoyed in the Schwabentor Gate and "Island” areas. Miniature streams flow through the streets and alleyways, contributing to the city's unique appearance.
