Montreux – Gruyère – Gstaad – Thun

The Lakes-Route deserves its name, because many lakes touch the Route from its beginning at the Lake Geneva to its goal at the Lake Thun. The Route leads through some of the outstanding touristic regions with great sounding names: Montreux, Gruyères, Gstaad, Thun.

Tour character: Along the lakes between Montreux and Lake Thun the route is smooth and flat – but between the lakes there are some minor passes to cross: Less athletic cyclists are recommended to use an electric bike which is well suited for this route. Athletic cyclists use the touring bikes.
