Cycling holiday in Switzerland 2013
A cycling holiday in Switzerland – a somewhat unusual concept for those of us who live in less mountainous regions. However, Switzerland has a well developed and signposted network of national cycling routes. Numerous rivers and valleys ensure that Switzerland can be enjoyably and easily discovered by bicycle. And where the going is too tough for average cyclists the reliable and punctual Swiss Rail can help out.
What can you expect on a cycling holiday in Switzerland? Impressive architecture and culture in the large cities of the country: Zurich, Bern and Basle. Countless romantic small towns, medieval or Baroque in character. Idyllic villages with happy cows, some of which are bustling with life, others sleepy and peaceful. And of course lots of nature: the famous Swiss mountain world, the rolling hills of the foothills of the Alps or the varied landscape of Central Switzerland. Enjoy the variety and similarities of the 27 Cantons, the excellent cuisine in all its regional varieties and the famous Swiss hospitality!
As you can see, there is a lot to discover by a cycling holiday in Switzerland, we look forward to hearing from you!
