Lake Constance dominates the first stage of the Panorama Bike route: its imposing size becomes clear on the ascent to the Rorschacherberg. Then the view changes and the expanse of the Lake Constance region contrasts with the narrow valleys and pretty villages. The route ends amid the picture-perfect Appenzell region.
Trogen – Appenzell
The Appenzellerland is one of the most unspoilt areas in Switzerland and its charm is difficult to match. This stage is characterized by a lovely hilly landscape, painted houses and picturesque townscapes. Along the way, the mighty Säntis massif draws ever closer, forming an impressive backdrop.
Appenzell – Stein SG
The route becomes more alpine and at the foot of the Säntis leads along alp and gravel paths to the first two «real» passes on the Panorama Bike – Schwägalp Pass and Risipass – and then down into Toggenburg.
A small steep asphalt road leads out of Toggenburg to Vorder Höhi, with wonderful views of the rugged Glarner Alps. The racy descent leads to the shores of the glistening, deep-blue Walensee.
Landscapewise a pleasure, biketechnically rather simple. The panorama bike in eastern Switzerland convinces with leisurely stages and makes low demands on stamina and technique. A bike tour through the hills of Appenzell and Toggenburg for connoisseurs
