This approximately 31,1 km long round trip leads, as the name "Hiwwe un Driwwe" suggests, through beautiful places on both the French and the German side. Colourful meadows and fields, but also colourful mixed forests make every cyclist's heart beat faster.

This somewhat more challenging round trip leads uphill and downhill through charming villages on the French and German sides – so "hiwwe and driwwe". The tour starts on the French side and leads past the "Fleckensteiner Weiher" and the "Schönauer Weiher" – both offer bathing opportunities. 
The tour leads through picturesque meadow valleys and through the Palatinate Forest/Northern Vosges Nature Park Biosphere Reserve. Very varied and also different are the respective villages hiwwe as driwwe through which this round trip leads.


UFFBASSE! - Campaign for a considerate coexistence in nature

Always be forward-looking, friendly and considerate of everyone you meet along the way.

Pay attention to nature, do not destroy plants and always stay on the trails.

Think of a garbage bag on the go and take waste back home.

Please always keep your dog on a leash. Other visitors and animals thank you.

For your own safety, keep in mind any roadblocks. Also on weekends.

Park only in designated parking spaces. Leave room for escape routes and agricultural machinery.

Please give priority to agricultural and forestry transport.

Safety information

Often our cycling routes run along paths on which we are guests by bike and which we share with others. We therefore ask for a considerate and friendly cooperation at all times. Farmers and foresters use the farm roads through fields and forests for their everyday work (even on weekends) and therefore always have priority. 

Due to work assignments and/or weather conditions, these paths can also be more polluted at times. Special care should also be taken when guided along the (mostly quiet and little-used) roads in and around the Alsatian and Palatinate villages.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Lembach, the cycle path leads along the Bächlein Sauer. Past the campsite and the Fleckensteiner-Weiher (bathing possibility), the tour leads a short distance on the D925 until it goes after the pond left on an asphalted cycle path in the direction of Hirschtal and on to Schönau. From here, the route leads past the Königsweiher in the direction of the Heilsbach educational and leisure centre. Then we turn right here over the wooden bridge in the Königsbruch. 
The round trip continues on the water-bound cycle path slightly uphill to the Rumbacher-Höhe, then we roll down towards Rumbach. Arriving in the idyllic half-timbered village of Rumbach, we follow the cycle path to Bundenthal. Past the Falkenmühle through the village of Bundenthal. At the exit of the village we turn right onto the cycle path up the mountain to the junction K46, then down until we reach the picturesque village of Nothweiler.

The tour leads through the Lembacher Straße to the bike path, first it goes slightly uphill and then down again until we first have Petit Wingen and then the pretty Alsatian Wingen in front of us. Now we cycle past colorful meadows and fields until we come to our starting point Lembach.
