Cycling tour “890 Frienisberg Scenic Route”

On this 43-kilometre-long thematic route around the Friensiberg high plateau, cyclists are accompanied by wonderful views of the Seeland, the city of Bern and the Bernese Alps. And the highlight on this route, the platform on the 45-metre-high Chutzenturm, offers the very best views.

Route information

The most beautiful route from Bern city centre to the Friensiberg Scenic Route follows the Veloland signposting No. 890: starting from Bern main station, follow Aare route 8 or route 94 via Länggasse through Bremgarten forest. After the Kappelen bridge, you’ll already be on the 890 Friensiberg Scenic Route which is best explored anti-clockwise. Route 890 crosses paths with route 888 twice. You can combine these two routes in any way you want.

An e-bike will make your ride more leisurely, a conventional bicycle more athletic. But it doesn’t matter which one you choose, the Friensiberg Scenic Route is a sensual experience in any case. The Chutzenturm stands at the centre of this route: climbing its 234 steps will reward you with an impressive panoramic view spanning from the Titlis to the Moléson. And on the way, you can learn more about the natural sites in the region thanks to the informative panels you’ll see.

Food and accommodation

So much more than just cycling: should you get hungry, you’ll find all the products you need for a mouthwatering picnic in the charming farm and village shops along the way. And if you prefer a meal made from local ingredients, you can treat yourself in one of the restaurants.
