Cycling: Aare-Route

Along the largest Swiss River

A classic one in the cycling country Switzerland: along the Aare you can get to know a piece of Switzerland that has preserved the charm of its province, its peasantry and its unspoilt nature right up to the present day: Visit our country and its inhabitants "through the back door" – not through the front entrance with all the tourist stereotypes.

Itinerary

You start your trip with a ride through the wide Aaretal (Aare Valley): large villages, industry, open fields and a powerful river in lush water meadows. Then follows the entrance to Bern, the capital city of Switzerland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

approx. 45 km

Idyllic trio at Lake Wohlensee: bird paradise, hydroelectric power station and nuclear pile. The Aare leads into the Seeland, a huge vegetable garden thanks to the canal Hagneck. Behind reeds and woodland you can sense the Lake Biel, cheerful hustle and bustle in bilingual Biel-Bienne.

approx. 50 km

"Children" of the Jura water correction: the Nidau-Büren canal and the old water loop in the Häftli. Witi-Altreu, the  world of the stork and hare chamber. Continue along the banks of the Aare river until you spot the St. Ursen Tower which marks the baroque town of Solothurn.

approx. 30 km

The so-called "Ambassadorial City" of Solothurn is considered the most beautiful baroque city in Switzerland, where Italian grandeur is combined with French charm and German-Swiss down-to-earthness. From here always the Aare "naa" (to) – Aarau, capital of the canton of Aargau in the Swiss Midlands (Schweizer Mittelland) , lies on the river Aare, to which the city and canton owe their names.

approx. 60 km

A family-friendly and delightful route along the Aare River from Aarau to Koblenz, where Aare and Rhine rivers converge. A scenic ride past gabled houses, a few cement factories, wetlands, beavers, birds – and lots of water. From Koblenz you cycle on to Bad Zurzach and enjoy the thermal baths.

approx. 50 km

Tour character

A perfectly signposted, mostly flat cycle route, predominantly on field and forest trails far away from motiorized traffic. Some parts left natural, but most of the tour is done on asphalt roads. On the first stage there are some passages where you have to push your bike and there are some steep parts as well.
