Rapperswil Castle

Lake Lucerne – Lake Constance

The mountains and lakes of the Confederates

7 Days / 6 Nights
Rapperswil Castle

Lake Lucerne: Rough and almost alpine, Lake Zug: Nestled in a lovely hilly landscape, the little-known waters of Lake Aegeri and Lake Sihl are insider tips, Lake Zurich is more likely to be touched on the fringes, but the rose town of Rapperswil on its shores is guaranteed to turn your head. Wild and deep blue, Lake Walen is considered one of the most beautiful bodies of water in Switzerland before you finally follow the Rhine on its way to Lake Constance. The cool blue takes centre stage every day on this magnificent bike tour.

itinerary at a glance

From lake to lake: Take a stroll in Luzern to the Chapel Bridge and enjoy the atmosphere by Lake Lucerne. You'll then visit Lake Zug, Lake Ägeri, and the Rothenthurm High Moor. After passing Lake Walen and Vaduz, you'll reach Lake Constance.

Located directly on the lake, against a picturesque mountain backdrop, the panorama of the "city of lights" is unique. Visit the Lion Monument and stroll across the Kappell Bridge.

A well-developed promenade leads you along the Reuss out of Lucerne. The Zugerland is slightly hilly; Lake Zug is lovely. Strengthen yourself with a kirsch cake, because now follows a longer ascent past the Höllgrotten up to the Ägerisee.

A fierce battle world at the crystal-clear Ägerisee, an orchid, peat and insect world in the Rothenthurm high moor and a busy pilgrim world in the pilgrimage site Einsiedeln. Lovely and useful, the Sihlsee, which supplies electricity; divided by the Seedamm, the villa-inhabited Zürichsee; meliorated by the idiosyncratic engineer H.C. Escher, the Linth plain with canal and new farmland and meadows.

Figs and kiwis ripen in the climatic chamber of Lake Walen, where the infinitely high rock faces of the Churfirsten threaten to topple into the 150-meter-deep water. The overnight stay is in Quarten, just above the lakeshore.

With a light step, we continue to Sargans, guarded by the castle and Gonzen, an ancient iron ore supplier. The St. Gallen Rhine Valley is a landscape often spoiled by the warm foehn. Pay a visit to the Principality of Liechtenstein. There is much to see in the small country.

Much land was reclaimed during river corrections of the Alpine Rhine in the Rhine Valley. In the distance, the flat delta and silvery expanse of Lake Constance beckon. Despite vibrant shoreline life, the ancient cultural landscape remained an idyllic stretch of land with interesting castles and large orchards.
