Suggested itinerary

Arrival and check-in

We recommend travelling to Bern the day before for a relaxed start into your bike trekking adventure. A good time of arrival is around 3:00 p.m., which gives you enough time to check in and drop off your luggage at your accommodation. Use the rest of the afternoon for a discovery stroll through Bern's Old City or a trip to one of the many museums.

Round it off with a tasty dinner, offered by your accommodation to make sure you’ve got enough energy for the next day, when you’ll be tackling the first e-bike route. End your day with a relaxed nightcap, if you feel like it, and then hopefully a good night’s sleep.

Day 1: E-bike Route 888 Grünes Band Bern

After a hearty breakfast from the buffet, it’s time to hop on the saddle. Get on your own e-bike or pick up the reserved one at the Rent a Bike station inside Bern’s main station. You can reach the train station on foot or by streetcar (which you can use for free thanks to your Bern Ticket).

Once you’ve gotten your e-bike ready and fastened your helmet, you’re off to the E-Bike Route 888 Grünes Band Bern. Which route you choose to get there is up to you. The bike trekking map provided by your accommodation shows you the most scenic way to the route.

Once you’re back in Bern, you’ve earned a reward. Perhaps a refreshing shower or a cool, tasty drink?

Followed by an exploration of Bern’s gastronomic diversity. Our recommendation if you want to try the regional cuisine: a “Berner Platte” (“Bernese platter”) at the Kornhauskeller. If you’re more of a fan of international cuisine or Mediterranean flair, Bern has also got you covered.

  • Tipp

    Please note: the rented e-bike doesn’t have to be returned until the end of the second day. But please remember to always lock your e-bike, and don’t forget to charge the battery so you can continue the next day. Your hotel has a place to leave your bike as well as charging stations.

Day 2: E-Bike Route 890 Frienisberg Scenic Route

After another hearty breakfast, you’re ready to tackle the newly created E-bike Route 890. You can almost take the same route as the day before to get to its starting point.

Back in Bern, you can return the e-bikes to the Rent a Bike station in Bern’s main station. Now it’s time to pick up your luggage, unless you decide to prolong your stay – for another drink, another dinner, or even another night.

Day 3: Discover Bern

Now that you’ve explored Bern’s surroundings, it’s time to discover the beautiful city itself.

And there are many great museums with a variety of interesting exhibitions that you can visit. In keeping with the scenic theme, we recommend the exhibition “Let's Talk about Mountains. A Filmic Approach to North Korea” at the Alpine Museum. Or, if you’re interested in e-mobility and futuristic ideas, you might be intrigued by the exhibition “SUPER – the second Creation” at the Museum of Communication.

And of course there are countless shops, boutiques, cafés, and bars beneath Bern’s famous arcades just waiting to be discovered.

  • Tipp

    In August, a new e-bike route will be inaugurated in the destination Bern: the “Sagenroute”, which is all about the legends and myths of the Gantrisch region. Our recommendation: our overnight package can also be combined with an excursion to the Gantrisch Nature Park and this new route.
