An e-bike will make your ride more leisurely, a conventional bicycle more athletic. But it doesn’t matter which one you choose, the 31-kilometre-long circular route through the Laupen region inspires cyclists to take a break and reflect on time. Along the way, guests can learn about the origins of the famous local dish “Bärner Platte” (“Bernese Platter”). A trip along the Laupen Historical Loop is an unforgettable “Paselitang” (Bernese expression for cosy way to pass the time, derived from the French “passer le temps”).

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.

  • Fact

    Many restaurants and cafés are closed on Sundays and Mondays or have irregular opening hours. We recommend you check the opening hours on the restaurants’ websites in advance.
