Cycling in Swiss for a week


I'm an Indian currently residing in South Germany(near Heidelberg) for a while. I wish to ride through the scenic landscape of Switzerland in July/August. I was goggling some routes that would fit a ride for a week(8~9 days). I found this interesting,
Route 4 - Alpine Panorama Route -

This route quite seems to fit the bill but I wish to know your thoughts. Is there anyone would has done this and let me know if this is good enough to enjoy the picturesque beauty of the country on a bike. Does this route have a good mixture of rides by the rivers, lakes, valleys, loops, views of the mountains/glaciers etc. Also, are there any changes I could do the the plan to make the trip more breathtaking in term of scenery?

If there are better routes, please do suggest.

I have a ok road bike(700x28c wheels) and have done quite some biking in the hills of South India (Western Ghats) and a ride in the north eastern Indian Himalayas(Lahaul and Spiti Valley).

Tarun Shetty.

Hi, I'm sorry you didn't get

Hi, I'm sorry you didn't get any answer. I was touring myself... So are you still looking for information? Or if you're back already, how did you like cycling in Switzerland?

Hi Tarun Once again, sorry

Hi Tarun

Once again, sorry for the late answer. I was touring too and I wasn't active on the forum. Where are you now?

I think this route is a very good option. You'll be near the mountains and sometime riding over some tops :-)

Some hints if it's not to late:

- try to have a look between Lausanne and Montreux, I personaly find it's one of the must beautiful scenery in Switzerland, the lake with the mountains behind. It's not far away your route.
- You can make it easier riding both of the Thunersee and Brienzersee instead of behind the mountains.
- You will/have ride not so far from me (not far from Rapperswil), just ask if you need some helps or other hints.
