Turn-by-turn directions

First the tour leads along the main road for a short stretch to Eichzun before Intelaken. There you ride the rest of the tour mostly on a separate cycle path, also over the Brünig - only short sections lead along the road. In Eichzun you then turn left onto the Lakes Route (No. 7) towards Interlaken. The route runs along the right shore of Lake Brienz with beautiful views of the deep clear water. At the Giessbach Falls there is a short section with a few roots where you may have to push your bike briefly - depending on how much you like the "mountain bike feeling", the section is also rideable. It's worth taking a short break here and marvelling at the waterfalls before heading towards Meiringen and over the Brünig. The climb up the Brünig is short but intense, but you can enjoy the fresh breeze on the descent to Lungern. Along Lake Lungern you reach Giswil on Lake Sarnen and continue to your destination for the day, Wilen on Lake Sarnen.
