Cycling: Heart Route

Straight into your heart!

The Herzroute (Heart Route) leads through the most beautiful areas in Switzerland's Alpine foothills. The secluded trails, far from traffic noise and all hustle and bustle, are particularly appealing for exploring by electric bike. The route offers heart-warming encounters with the countryside and people.  

Gently rolling hills, lush meadows, beautiful forests and wonderful views of the Alps: scenery that will earn a place in your heart - the Herzroute. It wends its way through the chain of the Alpine foothills. And behind every range of hills is a valley with its own distinctive features just waiting to be explored.

The aim of the Herzroute is not directness, but its path. Switzerland as it once was is there to experience at your own pace. It's well worth spending a little time at impressive vantage points. Small hamlets, stately farmsteads and picturesque small towns cater for variety.

Electric bikes are recommended to cover this route with ease as it primarily leads through rolling countryside. Points for bike rental and battery changing are found along the route. Strenuous climbs are thus easily mastered so that the Herzroute can be enjoyed by cyclists of all abilities and ages.

Tolle Velotour
Die Herzroute Highlights Emmental und Zugerland zählt zu den schönsten Velotouren die wir bisher über Eurotrek / Partnerfirmen von Eurotrek gebucht haben. Die gemieteten E-Bikes waren top und der Service der Akku-Wechselstationen perfekt organisiert.

Herz-Route Highlights Emmental & Zugerland
Tolle Route. Unterkünfte sehr unterschiedlich zum Teil ausserhalb der Zielorte.

Lieber F.S. Vielen Dank für Ihre Rückmeldung. Schön, wenn Ihnen die Tour gefallen hat. Ursprünglich als «Teststrecke» für E-Bikes gedacht, entwickelte sich die Herzroute zu einem der Highlights in unserem Angebot. Eine Bemerkung noch zur Wahl der Unterkünfte. Diese richtet immer sich nach Angebot, Verfügbarkeit und natürlich nach der Lage. Wir sind darauf bedacht, dass die Hotels entweder direkt an der Route liegen oder nicht weiter als 5 Minuten (mit dem Rad) vom Zentrum weg sind.

Magnifica Svizzera in bicicletta
Le nostre vacanze sono state magnifiche e abbiamo assaporato le bellissime zone dell'Emmental Bernese attraverso la via nr. 99 Herzroute. La pioggia del 3 e 4 giorno non ci ha fermati ed il bel tempo ci ha poi accompagnati da Zugo ad Aarau e da Aarau a Morat, da dove eravamo partiti. Grazie all'ottima organizzazione di Eurotrek, trasporto valigia e hotels, non ci sono stati intoppi e nessuna preoccupazione ulteriore. E' la seconda volta che Eurotrek ci organizza il tour in bicicletta e ne siamo entusiasti. Sicuramente vi contatteremo ancora per le nostre prossime vacanze a due ruote. Grazie di cuore. Cristina e Simone
