The last section of my ride along the Rhine was through southern Germany from Speyer, through Germersheim, Karlsruhe, Plittersdorf, Kehl, Ottenheim, Rust, Sabach am Kaiserstuhl, Breisach, Neuenberg, Bad Bellingen and finally Weil am Rhein and across the border into Basel.
It was very different down there, hardly any river traffic, the river actually got shallow enough for some white water.  Plenty of flood prevention methods around as well, accompanying canals and areas to flood if needs be.  From Karlsruhe heading south you can ride the French side of the river if you choose to.  I stayed on the German side all the way to Basel, hardly a tarmac path in site, all off-road gravel paths and not many people.
