The mill bike path connects, past many former mill sites, the Selz with the Rhine. In particular, the Seebach once drove many mills due to its abundance of water. A gem is the idyllic and spacious Seebachquelle in the old Westhofen village. Further worth seeing mill and brook views are to be found in Osthofen, before the flat and almost limitless Rhine plain takes in the Mühlen-Radweg via Rheindürkheim to the Rhine and to Gimbsheim.
