Switzerland is a country full of fascinating and very scenic cycle routes. Pedaling on the route of these bike lanes you can visit the most authentic places in Switzerland, away from the most popular tourist destination.

The national cycling network has 9 routes, besides these almost every region and local community can boast of different paths perfectly suited to cyclists.

The Mittelland Route is the national route N. 5. It’s about 370 km from the town of Romanshorn, on the shores of Lake Constance, in Lausanne. It’s a suitable route for gravel and mountain bikes because for at least 80 km you go on dirt roads.

After crossing a mountain pass at 600 mt, the route continues almost completely in the top floor of a plateau at 400 mt high.

The first miles between Romanshorn and Will are the only really challenging ones. Once you cross Zurich, the spa town of Baden and the ancient Roman settlement of Windisch, begins the stretch on the plateau. The bike path is particularly fascinating on the beach of the Lake Bienne and on the bridge across the Broye canal.

At this point the Mittelland Route continues in French Switzerland in the direction of Neuchâtel.
You walk along the lake with the same name and then go to the Grande Carissey Nature Reserve.
There are therefore only 50 km to the final destination, Lausanne, but before arriving also run along the Lake Geneva.
