Selz Valley Flow from the Rhine to the Heart of Rhinehessen

The Selz Valley Cycle Route

The Selz Valley Cycle Route is our tip for a deceleration tour. Enjoy the gentle sweep of the Rhine-Hessian hills and experience the tranquility of the Selz River as it reclaims its natural space. All in all, a good cross-section of Rheinhessen from the Rhine across the Rheinhessen hills to the North Palatinate mountains. The worth seeing Volkerstadt Alzey and the Kaiserpfalz and red wine city Ingelheim are the start and finish of the tour.
