3000 km Switzerland

Background and Planning:

After "European Alps - The big loop!" of the summer of 2000, Werner, Lothar, Dietmar und I decided to have a closer look at Switzerland the following summer.
As I tend to quite often spent time in Switzerland and know my way around, we’d already been to some of the more out-of-the-way places, the quieter backwaters which are barely known, but which nevertheless offer exceptionell scenery and challenging roads.

To me, Switzerland as a whole embodies the Best the Alps have to offer and the personal highlights are:
  • The Bernese High Country
  • The Wallis (Swiss Rhone Valley)
  • The area around Lake Viewaldstaetter

Considering those 3 key-areas, a rough plan came together easily:
  • First up the area around Appenzell
  • Let’s not forget Liechtenstein!
  • Lake Walensee to Lake Sihlsee
  • Lake Vierwaldstätter
  • Bernese High Country
  • Central-Switzerland ( Furka, Grimsel, Susten, Gotthard – resp. the old Tremola-Road!)
  • The Rhone Valley
  • Lago Maggiore and Lake Lugano
  • Engadin (area around St. Moritz)

Here some impressions from this beautiful country:
