On the water
Sundgau is known for its innumerable ponds, more than a thousand they say. This figure is undoubtedly exaggerated because no one really knows the exact number of these small bodies of water, often shallow, the oldest of which date back to the XNUMXth century. It is said that it was the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Lucelle who favored their establishment to breed carp there. Today, the vast majority of them are private or managed by fishing associations where carp remains queen!
The Sundgau is also crossed by the Rhone-Rhine canal which welcomes a few boaters finding refuge at the nautical relay of Wolfersdorf, a small bucolic haven of peace which gives a little seaside air in the heart of the Sundgau. You don't have a boat, so you can cycle along the canal quietly thanks to the greenway that adjoins it ...
The Sundgau has three swimming pools, in Ferrette, Altkirch and Tagolsheim, renovated and attractive facilities, two of them with well-being areas with sauna and hammam.
