No need to be a world-class athlete or a speed king, just pedal at your own rhythm and tune out from the day-to-day. Seltz is the crossroads of the Rhine cycle route and the cross-border Haguenau – Rastatt (D) itinerary:
Numerous trails, 100% safe tarmac on the French side, are open to you:
The EuroVelo 15 Rhine Cycle Route which, to the north, runs alongside the Rhine, crossing the Rhine forest and nature reserve to Lauterbourg (a charming fortified market town situated at the eastern point of Alsace), and then continues towards Karlsruhe (D). To the south, it leads to Strasbourg, the European capital. Over the entire cycling trail (cycling trail no. 1), it runs alongside the Strasbourg – Lauterbourg railway line served by TER regional express trains (bicycles can be transported free of charge on board these trains). It will help you to get where you're going faster or to get back quickly to your trip.

- Haguenau – Betschdorf – Hatten – Seltz (cycling route no. 24 in construction) – Rastatt (D)
Via the undivided forest of Haguenau and the site of the Great Oak (Le Gros Chêne), this trail goes to the potters' village of Betschdorf and then on to Hatten, an essential stop to learn all about the Maginot Line. From here, the green trail laid out along the former railway line from Walbourg to Seltz takes you quickly to Niederroedern. After 32 kilometres, you will come to a small road to Seltz, after passing through Schaffouse-près-Seltz. Beyond that, via the cable ferry conveyed by the strength of the current, you will cross the Rhine to your destination of Rastatt.
