EuroVelo 6: Explore European rivers by bike!

EuroVelo 6, from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, is one of our most popular routes and it’s little wonder why: coasts, rivers, castles and a nice flat topography make it every cycle tourists’ dream journey.

The Atlantic-Black Sea EuroVelo 6 route is one of the 14 routes of the EuroVelo network created by the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) in 1994. From 2004 to 2006, 18 French, German and Swiss partners joined forces to set up the West part of this EuroVelo cycle route, from the Atlantic to Ulm.

It aims at running alongside three of the largest European rivers, melting pots of European civilisation: the Loire, the Rhine and the Danube.
