The Lakes Route takes you on a journey across Switzerland's picture-book landscape. Magnificent views of the Alps are doubly enchanting with reflections in the water.
The Lakes Route takes you on a journey across Switzerland's picture-book landscape. The starting point is the train station Montreux close to Lake Geneva. Then you pass though the region of La Gruyère - home of Switzerland's favourite cheese. The Jaunbach river points the way to Gstaad-Schönried, a chalet village in Saanenland known for its chic charm and discreet luxury.Continue whizzing down the Simmental on the saddle to the unlikely pair of brothers Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. Two deep clear mountain lakes that captivate with their grandiose panorama. A visit to the world-famous town at the foot of the "Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau" triumvirate - Interlaken - is well worthwhile. Now it's time to pedal hard over the Brünig Pass. Once you reach the top, the glistening of the natural Lungerersee reservoir rewards your efforts.On the last stage you cycle to Lake Lucerne, where a breathtaking mountain backdrop is reflected in the water in the heart of Switzerland. Via the beautiful town of Lucerne in the foothills of the Alps, the tour continues along the shores of Lake Lucerne to Weggis. The tour ends there.
