Bike Tour from Zurich to Einsiedeln
The tour from Zurich to Einsiedeln shows just how remarkably close lovely landscapes are to the city.
The first stage takes you over the Albis chain through the rural Knonau district. Spectacular panoramic views towards the Alps of the Glarus region, Central Switzerland and Bernese Oberland, the idyllic Türlersee in the middle of a forest invites you to a refreshing bathe.
The second stage is marked by the pre-Alpine and hilly character of the region around the Ägerisee, by the unique, broad high-moorland landscape near Rothenthurm and the spacious high plain around the Sihlsee with the small, fascinating monastery town of Einsiedeln.
