On the tracks of Vauban and Schoelcher
This bicycle tour, which harmoniously mixes together history and nature, will bring you through 2 incredible sites packed full of history: the fortifications of Neuf-Brisach built by Vauban, listed as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO since 2008 and the Museum of Victor Schoelcher, who was a fervent anti-slavery campaigner and defender of human rights. These two locations are linked together by the Canal Rhône au Rhin, which owns a very dynamic flora and fauna.
