Cycling holidays in Switzerland

Cycling tours in Switzerland - Panorama

Cycling in Switzerland - perhaps a somewhat unfamiliar thought for a flatland Tyrolean. Yet a network of well-developed and signposted national cycle paths, known as cycle routes, crisscrosses the country. The signposting for cyclists in Switzerland is exemplary by international standards. Easy-to-read signposts, local, regional, and national cycle routes, frequent separate cycle paths, and a close-knit network of reliable public transport - these are the best conditions for a successful cycling trip in Switzerland.

And what awaits you along the way

Great architecture and culture in the country's major cities: Zurich, Bern, Geneva, Lucerne and Basel. A multitude of romantic little towns, medieval or baroque, such as Aarburg or Solothurn. Idyllic villages with happy cows, sometimes bustling with activity, mostly serenely dreamy. Strong contrasts between town and country, French and German, Rhaeto-Romanic and Italian. Mountains and Central Plateau, north and south.

You will discover great diversity and yet many similarities on your cycle tour in Switzerland. The country's exquisite cuisine and famous Swiss hospitality, chocolate and Grisons meat, Emmental cheese and Schaffhausen wine, raw milk in a mountain hut and an aperitif in a chic café on Lake Zurich. A cycle tour in Switzerland is pure enjoyment!

And lots of nature: the famous Swiss mountains, the gentle Alpine foothills or the varied Central Plateau. The world-famous Bernese Oberland with the Matterhorn and Eiger, the Grisons and Uri Alps, Alpstein and Appenzell. The wonderful lakes such as Lake Lucerne, Lake Thun, Lake Brienz, Lake Walen, Lake Zurich, Lake Maggiore and, of course, Lake Constance.

There are cycle paths to suit every taste - flat and relaxed along the Aare, marveling at the mountains from the valley, with sporting challenges up the mountains. Or would you like to explore Mediterranean Switzerland on Lago Maggiore? Switzerland has the right cycle tour for everyone
