Arrival in Aarau
This evening it is worth going for an evening walk through Aarau. Aarau’s pretty old town is charming with its painted undersides of roofs.
Aarau – Aarwangen
Your first bike tour takes you through light deciduous forests along the course of the Aare near Olten, past Aarwangen Castle to the little village of the same name on the Aare.
Today we have a wonderful cycle route planned for you. The bike tour will take you to Solothurn, one of the nicest baroque towns in Switzerland. Take a stroll along the promenade right by the river and then continue to Meienried where you will be staying in a straw dormitory at Family Käser’s farm.
Meienried – Biel
The River Aare meanders its way into the the Three Lakes Region. Along the way you will visit the Witi nature protection area. About 30 storks nest here every year. You continue towards Biel, which is Switzerland’s clock metropolis and that is located to the Eastern end of Lake Bieler.
Biel – Murten
Today you will deviate slightly away from the Midland route so that you can visit the small medieval little village of Murten, which has got a very well-kept town wall. Although the wall is under historical preservation, there is a good circular walk you can do on the wall.
Loop tour by Lake Murten
On this tour you will discover the pretty wine villages of the Vully region. Ideal for history buffs, but also for bathing friends, sun worshipers and lovers of good wine and regional products.
