Itinerary

Day 1Individual arrival in Constance/Kruezlingen

The largest town on Lake Constance is still quite Medieval in character to this day and in 1414 hosted the only church council ever to take place north of the Alps.

Day 2Constance – Schaffhausen 35 miles 55 km

Today you will cycle along the romantic Lower Lake through small fishing villages and the well-known town of Stein am Rhein. The Canton capital of Schaffhausen is towered over by the Munot Fortress. There are over 170 oriels in the town which testify to the former wealth of the citizens.

Day 3Schaffhausen – Zurich 43 miles 70 km

The first highlight of your trip is the Rheinfall waterfall, which you will approach by boat. The Glatt valley will lead you on to Zurich, the fascinating cosmopolitan Swiss city.

Day 4Zurich – Lachen 28 miles 45 km

Today you will cycle along the banks of Lake Zurich, which is also known locally as the Gold Coast until you come to Rapperswil with its old castle and cross over the lake using the dam. You will come to the small little town of Lachen on the opposite shore.

Day 5Lachen – Walenstadt 17 miles 25 km plus a boat trip

Today you will cycle along the Linth Canal, the man-made canal between Lake Zurich and Lake Walen, and come to Weesen. Here you will board a boat which will take you to the other end of the lake and Walenstadt. The Lake is 150 m deep and is towered over by the 1800 m high Churfirsten Mountains.

Day 6 Walenstadt – Feldkirch 31 miles 50 km

After a few kilometres, you will come to the valley of the Alpenrhein. From here you will quickly reach the principality of Liechtenstein, where numerous, impressive castles tower over the valley. The Medieval town of Feldkirch is on Austrian ground.

You will continue to follow the Rhine for a little longer, then a cogwheel railway will bring you up to Appenzell countryside, to Gais.

The library is a UNESCO- world heritage site.
