Largue valley cycle routeHalf day18,9km163m
This greenway, accessible from Euro Velo 6, which runs along the Rhône-Rhine canal, takes an old railway line and connects Dannemarie to Pfetterhouse, gently sloping up the Largue valley characterized by its many ponds and its typical Sundgauvian villages. Do not hesitate to take a detour in the heart of these charming little towns in the valley because this Green Way, very shaded, and pleasant in summer, walks in the middle of nature, outside the villages.
Travel along the winding roads of Alsace which weave a real network between the villages that make up this route along the watershed line. In the heart of Sundgau, here you will take the old towpaths of the Rhône-Rhine canal punctuated by multiple locks (away from the road and rail that connect Bourogne and Alsace).
The Rhône-au-Rhin canal follows a kind of median gutter, from the threshold of Valdieu, at an altitude of 350 meters to Brunstatt, at 250 meters. By following its banks between Wolfersdorf and Illfurth, from lock to lock, we find a bit of the rhythm of the boatmen of yesteryear. The circuit also follows the routes of the old Ill and Largue railway lines, memories of a time when people took the train to travel in Sundgau.

This route runs along the Ill and allows you to discover many curiosities which will be as many opportunities to make a stop: flowery villages, chapels, Peasant Museum of Oltingue. Ferrette, a medieval city built in a picturesque site, is also on the circuit.

The Henflingen Oberdorf section is the only one still in the planning phase. It is therefore necessary to take the departmental road for 2 km between these two municipalities. The rest of the route takes place on a cycle path or on very little-used lanes.
