The three-country route is a must in Dreiland. Whether you are a cycling enthusiast, a day-tripper or a sports cyclist, you will appreciate this unusual route which allows you to "leapfrog" the borders of the Three Country Region.At the crossroads of all land routes since antiquity, the Dreiland is also a crossroads of waterways in the forefront of which stands its Majesty the Rhine. You can pedal quietly and safely along the old towpaths which lead you through the woods and allow you to cross part of the immense Hardt state forest, the real Rhine forest.Along the way, don't hesitate to explore the towns and villages of the three countries and meet their inhabitants. This is a unique opportunity to discover three different cultures that share a common destiny on both sides of the Rhine.
