Along the Eichel

Hikes & walks in Lorentzen

This straight route connects two major sites which attract school groups and private individuals: the "Grange aux Paysages" (Landscape Barn) and the "Maison de l'Eau et de la Rivière" (The Water and River Centre). Its specific feature is that it passes through the SNCF train stations of Diemeringen and Tieffenbach. Above all, the itinerary is a pleasant outing which offers bicycle tourists the opportunity to appreciate the treasures of Alsace Bossue: a large diversity of landscapes and a built heritage of exceptional quality.
