  • General information

    If the e-bike is rented from Rent a Bike, the bike ticket for public transport is included. The rented bike can therefore be taken on all trains in the bike self-loading area without an additional bike ticket. The rental contract issued is valid as a self-loading ticket.

Battery charging stations

E-bike battery performance differs from model to model. Newer e-bikes can easily manage the 43-kilometre Frienisberg Scenic Route without an additional battery or charging stop. In any case, we recommend fully charging the battery before tackling the route, or, depending on the model, bringing another battery or your own charging device.

If the route does become too much for the battery, there are places along the way where you can charge it. You can charge your e-bike’s battery at the following locations:

  • Charging stations
    • Bogen 17 Kiosque
    • Restaurant Hirschen
    • Restaurant Sternen
    • Restaurant zur Linde
    • Barry-Hof
    • Feller Ruchwil farm shop
    • Sägesser farm shop
    • Frienisberg Monastery

Eating and drinking

There are several restaurants along the Frienisberg Scenic Route that serve yummy meals made from regional ingredients, and the various farm and village shops have all the products you need for a tasty picnic or barbecue. 

More information on the options along the way is provided here.

We’re happy to help if you have further questions.
