Midland-Route

River Aare and the Three Lake Region.

The mid-land tour is diverse and leisurely and lets you cycle along lakes and rivers as well as through quiet valleys, towns and villages. It’s perfect for families and for being able to dip into characteristically Swiss day-to-day life. Cycle paths that are pretty much car free run alongside the River Aare to the popular bodies of water - the three lake country. You cycle past nature protection areas, you visit medieval villages and tidy old towns and you discover an entire storks settlement. A diverse week for families who like being out and about.

Itinerary

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.

Cycle through sparse deciduous forests along the old course of the Aare near Olten and past Aarwangen castle in the same-named little village, Aare.

approx. 35 km

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.

approx. 30 km

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.

approx. 20 km

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.

approx. 40 km

On this tour you will discover the historic town of Murten and 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.

approx. 30 km

Tour character

The route is mainly flat and is well suited for families with young children. There are almost no cars on route and you go through fields and forests.
