This bike tour is all about the sweetest temptation in Switzerland. Your bike tour on the shore of Lake Zurich starts off at a leisurely pace with a visit to the Lindt & Sprüngli chocolate factory. A detour to Einsiedeln Abbey and a scenic drive over the Iberegg Pass will take you to Lake Lucerne. After a visit to Lucerne, drive to the cherry trees in Zugerland. At the end of the day, the sun smiles on you as you ride along the shores of Lake Zurich – just as it should be on a bike tour for connoisseurs.
