Cycling: La Route Verte

The nature parks of the Jura Arc

The "Vineyards & Orchards" Leisure Route takes you in five days from Schaffhausen to Delémont to discover the vineyards, forests and orchards of the three Swiss-German nature parks of La Route Verte. From the vineyards of the Blauburgunderland in the Schaffhausen Nature Park, you arrive in Bad Zurzach where you can enjoy the thermal baths.

The Linn Lime Tree welcomes you at the entrance to the Argovian Jurapark, whose cultivated landscape is marked by high-stemmed fruit orchards. After a stop in Liestal, the capital of Canton Baselland, you cycle to the Thal Nature Park, where you canadmire the works of art along the forest path “Holzweg Thal”. Your trip ends in Delémont in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, whose historic centre is well worth a visit.

Tour character

A challenging tour along the chain of hills of the Jura. The tours lead mostly on little used side roads. Only in the urban centres is a little more traffic to be expected. Because of the sometimes challenging climbs, we recommend that you tackle the tour with an electric bike. The "pleasure variants" offer shorter stages and are less strenuous than the original route. The Route Verte mostly follows the signposted routes of Veloland Schweiz. In the cantons of Jura, Neuchâtel and Vaud, orientation is easy; before that, the different routes change several times a day.
