Belchen-Panorama-Route

«No pain, no gain» is a popular saying that accurately describes this cycling tour. But it will be worth your while: the rewards for the countless climbs through the folds and plateaus of Baselland's Kettenjura and Tafeljura Mountains are the breathtaking views of the rich cultural landscape.
Besides the beautiful landscape, many a song has been sung extolling the mountains and valleys (Bärg und Täli) of Baselland. The topography of the Belchen-Panorama-Route is quite demanding and certain to make you sweat. Those who prefer a more leisurely ride should take an e-bike. Once you get to the top of the Hauenstein pass after a short climb, you will soon have a panoramic view of the entire region of Basel, all the way to the French Vosges and the Black Forest. Along the folds of the Kettenjura Mountains – past impressive limestone formations and through lush forests – you will be treated to one panoramic view after another as you look out into the distance all the way to the Alps.

Riding uphill and down will make you hungry; good thing that the route is lined with rustic inns and farms that serve meals and snacks. Finally, those interested in cultural history will want to visit the quaint towns of Olten and Liestal, which will entice you to stay a while.
