Panorama Bike

Panorama Bike

The Panorama Bike between the Bodensee and Lac Léman leads through Switzerland’s best-known Alpine foothill landscapes. It not only offers continual impressive Alpine panoramas but also countless spectacular views of many lakes.
Those choosing the Panorama Bike will literally experience a wealth of typical Swiss landscapes. The tour offers vast variety and an impressive cross-section of Switzerland, from the Bodensee region over Appenzellerland, Central Switzerland, the Bernese Oberland and the Gruyère region to the Vaud Alps. An amazing Alpine panorama can be almost permanently admired between the Bodensee and Lac Léman, as well as countless superb views of many large and small Swiss lakes.

The sections in the east are technically undemanding and an ideal way to find your biking legs. The route seldom has ascents of over 1000m and only a few passages are more than 1600 metres above sea level. This means that the Panorama Bike route can often be covered as early as the end of May.
