The final day of our bikepacking trip was a relaxing day of crossing the mainly flat Rhine valley, in between the Vosges Mountains on the one side (France) and the Black Forest mountains on the other side (Germany).
Our day started by waking up after a night in a local vineyard. We said goodbye to our lovely alternative (Gravel)Route du Vin and made our way to the German border at the town of Strasbourg. Strasbourg is a beautiful old town with a lot of biking going on. Ate a good burger there ;-)
Our journey ended where it had started many days before, at the edge of the Black Forest in the wine village of Durbach, from where we took the car back home after a good night's sleep in a local hotel.
All in all, this trip was a great one, with many different landscapes and changing scenery. Europe is so beautifully diverse in terms of landscapes and culture. Also, the Black Forest is truly a great place for riding gravel, whereas the Vosges Mountains are a bit more rough.
Looking forward riding my gravel bike through the Black Forest again soon!

Hello Erwin, I just finished my first bikepack tour by gravel bike and that makes me want more😃. Now I wonder whether this bikepack tour through Alsace and Vosges is a gravel bike tour or an MTB tour. The komoot qualification says mtb but in the pictures I think I see a gravel bike? Regards, Astrid
