Arrival to Yverdon-les-Bains
Train ride to Estavayer-le-Lac and start in the medieval town, first stop the peaceful Payerne Abbey Church. On over rolling molasse terrain, past tiny Lac de Seedorf and milky-blue Schiffenensee to Laupen at the confluence of the Sense and Saane.
Laupen – Burgdorf
Through impressive undulating natural and farming landscape to Bern, a stop at the UNESCO Wold Cultural Heritage city. Past Moossee lake, over open fields to approach the River Emme, Kirchberg and Burgdorf, the gateway to the Emmental.
Burgdorf – Zofingen
Through flat land and geometrically divided farming landscape, following the high-tech railway line. Close by, the idyllic Burgäschisee lake. Past the bird islands in the Aare, into Canton Aargau to Oftringen, the hub of the Swiss motor trade.
Zofingen – Baden
Away from the Aare, through a mixture of cultivated land and garages, shopping centre and houses, the motorway as an escort. Lenzburg still crouches in the shadows of the Habsburg Castle, once powerful across Europe. The goal is Baden, spa town on the Limmat.
Departure or extension
The hilly Alpine foothills have occasional climbs, but this is still an easy tour. Largely free of traffic, some traffic cannot however be avoided around the urban centres. Daily short sections on natural roads.
