Itinerary

The city on the lake of the same name is seen as being the only metropolis in Switzerland and has a well-preserved old town. All visitor attractions can be found within walking distance in and around the old town, e.g. stained-glass window by Marc Chagall in the Fraumünster-Kirche.

Today you will cycle along Lake Zurich towards Rapperswil with its old castle and will then cross over the lake along a dam. You will be taken by train to Einsiedeln, which to this day is still a popular place of pilgrimage.

Today’s cycling will be through quiet countryside and lively villages as you pass Lake Ägeri and Lake Zug. Küssnacht, Wilhelm Tell und Hohle Gasse are all Swiss national symbols which you will see today before cycling along Lake Lucerne and reaching the city of Lucerne.

The mountains to the left and right of Lake Sarner and Lake Lungerer continue to get higher. You will take the train to get over the famous Brüning mountain pass. Passing Lake Brienz you will reach your destination; the spa town of Interlake between Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.

The day begins with a boat trip on Lake Thun, before you cycle on the Bern. Goethe thought Bern was the most beautiful city in Switzerland. The old town is a world heritage site.

Cycling along the Aare river and Lake Wohlen you will come to the bilingual town of Biel/Bienne. The Swisswatch-making industry made the town famous. In the Omega museum you can learn all about the industry.

Today’s stage is only short so that you have enough time to enjoy the old town or the Lake. Solothurn is also a Canton capital city and is considered the most beautiful baroque city in Switzerland.

The river landscape of the, by now large, Aare dominates the landscape. Villages and meadows lie along the route to Aarau, Which is still marked by the 16th Century and was once the capital town of the Helvetic Republic.

Following the Aare River you will come to the “Wasserschloss” of Switzerland which literally translated means the “Water Castle”. You will cycle back to Zurich through the spa town of Baden with its 19 thermal springs.

After breakfast your cycling tour of Switzerland comes to an end.
