Montreux – Gruyère – Gstaad – Thun

The Lakes-Route deserves its name, passing by beautiful Lake Geneva and Lake Thun. The Route leads through some outstanding touristic regions with great sounding names: Montreux, Gruyères, Gstaad, Thun.

Tour character: Along Lake Geneva 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.
