Arrival to Lake Constance
The rolling hills of Oberthurgau: apples and pears in plenty, nearby canning factories to be expected. Motorway construction means that only parts remain of extensive water meadows east of Wil - main city in «Fürstenland».
Useful but unpredictable water from richly forested Tösstal. Culturally and industrially confident Winterthur, a city without airs and graces. Whether with a gentle murmur or a roar, the rut of the «silver birds» announce the arrival of Zurich.
Through the Furttal valley of the Limmat, the bathing spot Baden, and on to marvel at the Gothic stained glass windows in Königsfelden and yellow irises of the River Aare floodplain, followed by a leisurely ride on the Aare dam to Olten.
Olten – Biel
Past baroque Solothurn along the meandering Aare to Dreiseenland (three lakes country). Just 130 years ago, this landscape was redesigned by man: the lake level lowered and marshes drained. Seeland is now the scene of intense vegetable cultivation..
Biel – Murten
A pleasant ride throu gh the three lakes country. Just 130 years ago, this landscape was redesigned by man: the lake level lowered and marshes drained. Seeland is now the scene of intense vegetable cultivation.
The little medieval town of Murten on the south-east bank of the lake of the same name has preserved its original appearance, with the picturesque alleyways of the Old Town and the pleasant shady arcades.
From medieval Murten to the small city Avenches. The small town of Avenches lies in the wide Broye Plain between the Lakes of Neuchâtel and Murten in Canton Vaud near the border to Canton Fribourg. This former capital of Roman Helvetia has a rich and valuable heritage from Roman times.
Now back to Lake Neuchatel. chirping in the reeds, waves lapping at the gentle shore, the Jura shimmering in the distance. Over 100 species of birds breed in the Grande Cariçaie, the 40-km-long marsh and reed belt along the southern shores of the lake.
Flat and fertile: die Plaine de l’Orbe, framed by Roman mosaics and the rolling hills of Vaud. In Mormont, the watershed of the Rhone and Rhine. Change of scene from the wild waters of the Venoge to the small silver «sea» of Lac Léman.
