Cycling: Swiss "Schoggi"-Tour

The sweetest bicycle tour of Switzerland

This bike tour is all about the sweetest temptation that Switzerland has to offer. A smooth cycle tour on the shores of Lake Zurich starts your cycling week.

First stop is the world-famous chocolate factory of Lindt & Sprüngli. Afterwards you visit the monastery of Einsiedeln and continue your trip with a challenging ascend up on Ibergeregg pass which will be rewarded with a fantastic downhill towards lake Lucerne. From here you will continue to the cherries of Zug and finally the sun will shine on your face all the way along the coast of the Lake of Zurich– as it should be on a bike tour for connoisseurs.

To the online version


You will leave the town and ride through the suburbs of Zurich to Kilchberg which is the hometown of the world-famous Swiss Chocolate brand Lindt & Sprüngli. After guided tour through the Chocolateria you will decorate your very own chocolate bar. With this souvenir in your lunch bag you will continue through the rolling hills of the so called “Hirzel” from where you will descend back to the shores of Lake Zurich.

Tour character

A route for people who know how to enjoy themselves. Perfectly marked and signed bike trails lead you through the most beautiful sceneries of central Switzerland. The route is almost continuously paved and often leads on tranquil side roads or designated bike paths. For the ride through the hills of Hirzel and going up the Ibergeregg pass stamina and a good physical condition are required. In cities like Zurich or Lucerne one has to be mindful of traffic.

Le tour idéal pour les sportifs gourmands
Magnifiques paysages découverts tout au long de notre tour avec deux visites gourmandes de chocolateries. Une météo de rêve... la cerise sur la tourte de Zug...

Schöne Tour
Mir hat es sehr gefallen, angenehme Wege, wenn auch manchmal neben der Autobahn. Das einzige Problem war, dass wir Aeschbach Schokolatier nicht gefunden haben. Auf dem Tourenbeschrieb war es nicht klar ersichtlich, resp. nicht angetragen, dass wir die Route verlassen müssen. Zum Glück war die Firma grosszügig und wir konnten in Zug (Geschäft) noch zwei Tafeln abholen. Hotels waren sauber, Betten sehr gut, Frühstück reichhaltig und Personal sehr hilfsbereit.

Météo et voyage en Suisse: toujours difficile
L'étape Rapperswil _ Brunnen, forte en émotion avec le passage du col de l'Ibergeregg par deux degrés et descente difficile avec le froid. Beaux paysages le long du lac de Sihl et la vallée d'Unteriberg. Belle découverte de l'abbaye d'Einsiedeln. Dans l'étape Lucerne - Zoug, c'est incontestablement la visite du chocolatier Aeschbach, dont l'accueil est très convivial, et l'arrivée au-dessus du lac de Zoug, les bords du lac et la ville de Zoug qui laissent des impressions de douceur. Perte de temps à la gare de Zurich car le guichet des bagages n'était pas averti de la procédure, sortie difficile de la ville et itinéraire compliqué d'où une arrivée trop tardive chez Lindt pour bénéficier de la prestation. Accueil peu sympathique. Le trajet aurait été plus rapide par la Seestrasse qui passe devant Lindt.

Aux raisons logistiques, nous garantissons le transport des bagages jusqu’à 18h00. Tous nos chauffeurs essayent de délivrer les valises si tôt que possible, mais quelques fois il y a des problèmes en route ou des autres transports qu’ils doivent faire avant. Le transport à Zoug était à l’heure, mais je comprends bien que ce n’est pas très agréable d’attendre sa valise après une étape froid et humide ou si on aime découvrir la place d’étape. Nous travaillons déjà depuis longtemps avec la plupart des partenaires, mais c’est toujours le même dans les premières semaines de la saison : Il y a des nouveaux collaborateurs et quelques-uns ne sont pas familiarisé avec les procédures. Spécialement la gare de Zurich est toujours difficile. Il y a beaucoup des gens qu’y travaille et même si nous avons tous réglé avec les CFF, il y a parfois des retards. J’aime m’excuse si le première étape n’était pas très reposant.

Schoggi Tour
Die Schoggi Fabriken waren das Highlight. Wenn es nach mir gegangen wäre, hätte ich gerne noch mehr Schoggifabriken besucht.

Sehr schöne Tour, teilweise mit etwas kurzen Etappen, welche wir aber problemlos verlängern konnten. Der Gepäcktransport hat tadellos funktioniert, die Koffer waren jeweils schon auf dem Zimmer, wenn wir im Hotel ankamen.

Well organized and a beautiful route
The travel documents provided helped us better understand the areas we traveled through. The Herzroute had several spectacular views of the Alps. The route went through a variety of farms, countryside, forests and along lakes. Would certainly use Eurotrek again to organize our vacation. One note regarding using the battery recharge stations, some were closed both Monday and Tuesday. This meant on one day we barely made it to our hotel with any charge left on the battery.
