An abundance of sights to see: explore Switzerland from the convenience of your car or motorbike on the Grand Tour of Switzerland.
1,643 kilometres, 22 lakes, 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites, 5 mountain passes: the Grand Tour of Switzerland puts Switzerland’s diversity on display. The tour’s route, which goes around Switzerland once and passes through its centre, offers a relaxing way to explore the different sights. The Grand Tour is also the world’s first road trip route which is in its entire length geared for electric vehicles. Along the way, there are 300 charging stations for electric vehicles.
A Snack-Box with local delicacies is sold at 52 official points of sale and is ideal for gourmets. The many photo spots accentuate the different sights even more and invite visitors to capture the moment with a photograph.
A road trip across the Region of Bern
The Region of Bern also has an abundance of sights in store. The Grand Tour of Switzerland guides visitors from Gstaad via Bern to Trubschachen in the Emmental. A stop to stretch out and enjoy the views is always worthwhile. In Gstaad, visitors can wind down from everyday life, Interlaken trumps with the Jungfraujoch – including beautiful views of the UNESCO World Heritage site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch – and the delightful cafés in Thun invite guests to linger. Bern’s Old Town has a lot to offer for fans of culture. The UNESCO World Heritage site boasts fountains with colourful figures, the cathedral “Bern Münster” and the famous “Zytglogge”, the city’s clock tower. The trip through the Emmental offers special delights for gourmets. A stop at the Emmentaler show dairy in Affoltern im Emmental is always worthwhile, and in Trubschachen, everything revolves around the Kambly biscuits.
