Luggage drop-off in Geneva. The route follows the lake shore, past stately homes and well-kept public beaches. A magnificent hotel right on the shores of Lake Geneva and a visit to Prangins Castle awaits you at the end of this stage.
Prangins – Morges
We continue uphill through an idyllic landscape, across fields and pretty villages. Above the route the vineyards, below the lake. Via Nyon and Rolle the cyclist reaches Morges. Three museums are housed in the castle in Morges, which you can visit in the afternoon.
Morges – Lausanne
A short stage on Lake Geneva that takes you to the Olympic city of Lausanne. After arrival you will have plenty of time to stroll along the charming lake promenade.
After the Olympic capital Lausanne, the route continues uphill to the terraced vineyards of Lauvaux. A challenging passage, but one that is rewarded by the beautiful surroundings of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then departure for Vevey. A short counter-climb leads you to your hotel in St. Légier-Chiésaz.
Down the hill to Montreux. Use the time today for a detour to the romantic castle of Chillon or to visit the nature reserve Les Grangettes.
There may be a little more traffic around the cities, otherwise on quiet routes along the lake. In Lavaux there are a few strenuous sections. Otherwise a leisurely tour for connoisseurs.
