Cycling: Rhine-Route

Lake of Constance, Rhinefall, Basel

The impressions you get on this tour fit together like a puzzle: romantic riverside paths, straight as an arrow asparagus fields, cute timbered houses, endless power poles, stoic fishermen, sunburnt salt towers, unsimilar-similar German-Swiss bridge cities and exciting roman ruins. In the end, you ride through busy agglomeration past huge production halls oft the chemical industry and cargoships into the tripoint around Basel.

Itinerary

The tripoint in eastern Switzerland is your starting point.

The Lake of Constance (Bodensee): the soul of Europe. The area around the shimmering silver-green «Swabian sea» is an ancient cultural landscape. Despite its lively lakeside scene, Thurgau remains a serene slice of countryside with castles and extensive orchards. 

approx. 35 – 45 km
195 – 225 m
190 – 225 m

The lovely landscape along the long ribbon of the Untersee appealed to Napoleon, the richly-decorated town of Stein am Rhein attracts thousands of visitors every year, as does Europe’s mightiest waterfall, the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen. 

approx. 45 – 50 km
330 – 360 m
325 – 350 m

The Hochrhein has made its bed between Schwarzwald and the Jura, at times wide and unhurried, at others narrow and wild. Attractive floodplains and historic little villages add cultural enjoyment to this stage.

approx. 50 km
570 m
620 m

Starting in the Bad Zurzach wellness oasis, the stage leads to Koblenz, the historic old town with 4 bridges close to the Klingnau reservoir. The Rheinfelden destination – Switzerland's oldest “Zähringer” town – follows soon after the picturesque little town of Laufenburg. 

approx. 55 km
305 m
375 m

Cycle where the ancient Romans lived and enjoyed their games: Augusta Raurica with its silver treasure. The agglomeration is already pulsating, the asphalt sweating, commuters groaning; Basel beckons with hustle, bustle and cultural attractions. 

approx. 25 km
155 m
150 m

Tour character

The route mainly follows the shore of the Rhine and Lake of Constance – between Schaffhausen and Basel there are no noteworthy climbs.
