Karte der Aare Route

Tour characteristic

A perfectly signposted, mostly flat cycle route, predominantly on field and forest trails far away from motiorized traffic. Some parts left natural, but most of the tour is done on asphalt roads. 

On the first stage there are some passages where you have to push your bike and there are some steep parts as well.
