This is an ideal loop to discover the different neighborhoods of Mulhouse and the surrounding communes. Along the way, you will ride through the city’s industrial past as well as urban art sports.
We start the route at Mulhouse train station, riding along the canal to the Foundry district.
Once at the Illberg, the loop continues in the direction of several former industrial sites and workers’ housing estates. You’ll pass by the covered canal where the Mulhouse Market is held. A few minutes away is the DMC site, still partly in operation for the brand that makes the famous embroidery thread. This is where Motoco is located, which houses artists’ studios and the Climbing Mulhouse Center.
Finally, the itinerary leaves Mulhouse to reach Rixheim, where you can visit the Musée du Papier Peint. To finish well and reach Mulhouse, a rather steep hill awaits you, beware, it will put your calves and your breath to the test!
