Hiking, cycling and fishing

Alsatian food is a prime feature of the countryside north of Strasbourg. FromApril to June, Hoerdt is the world capital of asparagus!

L'accroche coeur will tell you where the best restaurants are to be found. There are some excellent eating places in and around the village, that offer great value for money. You can eat traditional dishes, such as baeckeoffe, choucroute, lewerknepfle, grombeerekaechle, waedele, bibeleskaas, with spaetzle, grombeeresalat and gebradeldi, depending on the season or eat delicious tartes flambées throughout the year.

Cycling. The immediate countryside is pretty flat, which means cycling is enjoyable and easy, ideal for visiting the Alsatian villages all around.

There's a really nice ride over to Brumath, and then along the canal de la Marne au Rhin. From there, you can cycle round the north Alsace plain, or ride down to Strasbourg.
If you have a fishing licence, you can also go fishing in the Zorn or in the canal de la Marne au Rhin.

Fishing here's a quiet affair, where relaxation and rest tend to be more important than the number of fish you catch..

If you don't have a fishing license, you can contact the Fédération du Bas-Rhin pour la Pêche et la Protection du Milieu Aquatique (website in French only)

Wild goose in a field in Alsace

Go walking or horse riding across the fields or along the river Zorn. There are a number of easy walks to enjoy from the B&B, after a good meal or simply to stretch your legs.

And if you're feeling up to it, it's a great spot for a morning jog in the Alsace countryside

If you start off early enough, you can often see wild deer, hares, storks and geese in the fields.
