Switzerland

The EuroVelo 5 route in Switzerland (National North–South Route No. 3) leads through the large scenic Swiss regions of the Jura, Mittelland, Central Switzerland and over the Alps to the south. Lovely, peaceful landscapes of the Baselbieter Jura. Thrilling ride down to Aarau. Off the beaten track through flat Suhrental, joining the stream of tourists in Luzern. A complex water: the grandiose Vierwaldstättersee. Closely harried by traffic over the Teufelsbrücke bridge towards the Gotthard, the south beckons with a racy downhill ride. The climate changes, first granite, soon chestnut trees and vineyards, Bellinzona «La Turita» a glimpse of the vegetable garden of Magadino. Lago di Lugano with photogenic Morcote, at the end, the Mendrisiotto.
