Today is all about the Rhine. After a refreshing swim in the Oberbruch reservoir in the morning, you drive past Ulm (don't worry, you haven't lost your way) and reach the bank south of the Lichtenau Rhine lowlands. If you feel like having a break at this time, the rustic, creative Ku-Stall in Freistett is ideal.As far as Kehl you drive mainly along the Rhine dam - on your left the floodplains, on your right one of the busiest waterways in the world. Kehl itself is characterized by brisk border tourism - mainly tobacco shops and travel agencies have settled here, because in Germany there are some financial advantages waiting for French customers. A detour to the Passerelle des Deux Rives is particularly worthwhile here to get a taste of the French air over the Rhine.It continues idyllically along the Rhine. If it becomes too monotonous for you in the long run on the Rhine dam or if you long for a few asphalt roads to get a little more momentum under your two wheels, you can also switch to stretches off the shore. Except for the main roads, these mostly criss-cross, which is why it is usually worthwhile to simply stay on the Rhine.At the Vältinsschollensee you will pass a gravel works. Depending on how much sand is heaped up there, you can drive over the company premises without any problems, otherwise you just turn a little round south around the lake and the Mühlbach until the next junction leads you back to the Rhine. There are also some nice places to swim here. So why not take the detour to take a break?South of Rust you branch off from the Rhine to the Leopold Canal. At Oberhausen you can then decide whether you want to continue straight ahead on the small towpath or take the small detour via the more easily navigable road. The tour follows the road. A short time later you have already reached your goal for today's goal. Here you will find a few places to stay overnight as well as a campsite slightly north on Lake Müller. It is advisable to make a reservation in advance. Alternatively, you can drive to Freiburg, about 22 kilometers away, on the first part of the third stage.
