Day 2

Rorschach – Kreuzlingen/Tägerwilen

Lake Constance spurs you on and tans your head: you pedal effortlessly and exhilaratedly along the lake in the sunshine. But the cycling route is not only idyllic: if you were just enjoying the section directly on the "Swabian Sea", you will certainly soon have to take a diversion that will take you away from what feels like paradise, even if only briefly.

Details: approx. 35 - 45 km ↑ 195 - 225 m ↓ 190 - 225 m 

Bodensee

Day 3

Kreuzlingen/Tägerwilen – Schaffhausen

Together with the Reichenau Monastery, a former Benedictine abbey, the island of Reichenau in Constance is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can also pedal through the villages of Berlingen and Steckborn with their pretty half-timbered houses. And the small town of Stein am Rhein: where the Rhine leaves Lake Constance lies this jewel with its magnificent town gates, frescoed stone and stately half-timbered houses.

Details: approx. 45 - 50 km ↑ 330 - 360 m ↓ 325 - 350 m

Schaffhausen

Day 4

Schaffhausen – Bad Zurzach

In the middle of Switzerland's northernmost city is the Munot, Schaffhausen's landmark. In Neuhausen you will see the Rhine Falls, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. A little further on, the Rhine flows calmly again and it's great fun to ride this section of the trail along with it.

Details: approx. 50 km ↑ 570 m ↓ 620 m

Day 5

Bad Zurzach – Rheinfelden

The stage starts in the wellness oasis of Bad Zurzach and leads to the 4-bridge village of Koblenz, near the Klingnau reservoir. The picturesque town of Laufenburg is soon followed by the stage destination of Rheinfelden, the oldest Zähringer town in Switzerland.

Details: approx. 55 km ↑ 305 m ↓ 375 m
 

Rheinfelden

Day 6

Rheinfelden - Basel | Departure

Cycling where the ancient Romans lived and played theatre: Augusta Raurica with its silver treasure. The agglomeration is already vibrating, the asphalt sweating, the commuter groaning. The Rhine metropolis attracts with its bustle, culture and hustle. Return journey by public transport from Basel to your final destination in Switzerland or extend your stay.

Details: approx. 55 km ↑ 305 m ↓ 375 m
