The “Tour de Suisse” for electric bikes

Seven lakes, rustic valleys, traditional villages: the journey leads up hill and down dale – a joy for e-bikers – right across the typical image of Switzerland. From Lake Geneva to the Gruyères where the fabled Cailler chocolate com- petes with the legendary Swiss cheese. From fashionable Gstaad to the dream- like setting of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Through fabulous panoramic views over the Brünig to Lake Lucerne, to Lucerne itself and then on to the pilgrim village of Einsiedeln. Finally, the route follows along Lake Zurich and Lake Walen to the expanse of the Rhine valley and on the Direttissima to Lake Constance.
