  • Day 1

    Arrival in Rorschach

    The trip point in eastern Switzerland is your starting point.

  • Day 2

    Rorschach and surroundings – Kreuzlingen / Gottlieben, approx. 65km

    The Lake of Constantze (Bodensee): the soul of Europe. The area around the shimmering silver-green "Swabian sea" is an ancient cultural landscape. Despite its lively lakeside scene, Thurgau remains a serene slice of countryside with castles and extensive orchards.

  • Day 3

    Kreuzlingen / Gottlieben – Schaffhausen, approx. 45 - 50km

    The lovely landscape along the long ribbon of the Untersee appealed to Napoleon, the richly-decorated town of Stein am Rhein attracts thousands of visitors every year. Europe’s mightiest waterfall doesn't disappoint either, the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen, absolutely magnificent!

  • Day 4

    Schaffhausen – Bad Zurzach, approx. 55km

    The Hochrhein has made its bed between Schwarzwald and the Jura, at times wide and unhurried, at others narrow and wild. Attractive floodplains and historic little villages add cultural enjoyment to this stage.

  • Day 5

    Bad Zurzach – Rheinfelden, approx. 55km

    Starting in the Bad Zurzach wellness oasis, the stage leads to Koblenz, the historic old town with 4 bridges close to the Klingnau reservoir. The Rheinfelden destination - Switzerland's oldest Zähringer town - follows soon after the picturesque little town of Laufenburg.

  • Day 6

    Rheinfelden – Basel, approx. 25km

    Cycle where the ancient Romans lived and enjoyed their games: Augusta Raurica with its silver treasure. The agglomeration is already pulsating, the asphalt sweating, commuters groaning. Basel beckons with hustle, bustle and cultural attractions.

  • Day 7

    Departure or extension.
