A cycling tour on the Laupen Historical Loop is an unforgettable “Paselitang” (Bernese expression for pastime, from the French “passer le temps”): Feel the breeze as you pedal along, breathe in the fresh forest air, explore the town of Laupen and its castle, and find out more about the history of the region at the four experience sites – this diverse loop has so much to offer to pass the time.

En route, bicycle trekkers also learn about the origin of the famous local dish “Bärner Platte” (Bernese platter) and have the opportunity to stop and try one themselves at one of the inns along the way. If you prefer a picnic at a scenic point such as the Chutze, you’ll find fresh, regional products at the farm or village shops.

  • Fact

    Many restaurants and cafés are closed on Sundays and Mondays or have irregular opening hours. So that you don't have to cycle next door on an empty stomach, we recommend that you check the opening hours in advance on the establishments' websites.
