Itinerary

Basel, Liestal and the Ergolztal: a bustling, self-confident agglomeration. In contrast: tranquility and charming countryside in the Baselbiet Jura. On through Aargau's Jurapark hills, followed by a racy descent down the southern Jura slopes to Aarau.

From Aarau the way leads to the idyllic Suhrental river valley; with views of the Alps spotted south and Jura chain north. Through rich orchards and fertile fields alongside Lake Sempach, this stage finally takes you to Lucerne.

Picturesquely along the bank of the Lake of Lucerne at Kastanienbaum; in Beckenried you cross the Lake of Lucerne by boat and cycle along the Achsenstrasse at the lake, towards the Urnerland.

Per Transfer through the Reuss-plain and up to the Gotthardpass, an alpine transit route of European importance. If by horse, by train or by car. Everyone always wanted and still want to cross the Gotthard southwards. The Leventina has been a passage corridor for ages. The further south you go, the milder the climate gets.

An easy ride along the waters of the Ticino, soon passing chestnut trees and vineyards. Bellinzona, called «La Turita» because of its many castles, lies on top of a strategic valley narrowing on the southern connection to the alp passes Gotthard, San Bernardino and Lukmanier and is probably the most Italian city of Switzerland. The "Skyline" oft he Tessin capitol with ist lombardic character formst he mighty fortress of three oft he best preserved medieval castles in Switzerland and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Tour character

After the start in the chemistry metropolis of Basel, crossing the Jura is the first challenge – as a reward, the next stage through the Swiss middle land from Aarau to Lucerne is almost completely flat. After the spectacular landscape along the Lake of Lucerne into the “heart of Switzerland” you transfer from Altdorf up to the legendary Gotthard pass. Through the Tremola ravine down to Airolo, the cyclist uses the old, cobbled pass road.

Super Tour
Die Route war super, allerdings wäre es besser, wenn nicht gleich am 1. Tag die höchste Anstrengung verlangt würde (wenn man diese wählt). Super, dass man sich deshalb die Route erleichtern kann, auch wenn wir es nicht taten. Die Räder waren hervorragend, der Gepäcktransport hat super geklappt. Die meisten Unterkünfte waren super.
