Itinerary

The rolling hills of the Oberthurgau: apples and pears in plenty, past the beautiful town of Bischofszell into the Hinterthurgau to Münchwilen.  

approx. 40 km
415 m
300 m

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. 

approx. 65 km
550 m
630 m

Through the Furt-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. 

approx. 65 km
415 m
450 m

Past baroque-town 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.

approx. 75 km
405 m
370 m

A pleasant ride through the three lakes country. 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. 

approx. 45 km
210 m
210 m

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 the cantonof Vaud near the border to the canton of 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 is 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.

approx. 45 – 55 km
295 – 320 m
300 – 320 m

Flat and fertile: 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. 

approx. 55 – 65 km
585 – 595 m
590 – 595 m
