On the Heart Route from the Emmental to the Jura

Luzern | Solothurn

Lucerne - the heart of Switzerland - is the ideal starting point for your bike tour. At the FLYER factory in Huttwil, you will be equipped with a state-of-the-art e-bike model. On this you will float along the Heart Route through the hilly landscape of the Emmental to Solothurn in the Jura. The next day you will discover the lake and river landscape of the Lake Biel region on the Aare & Mittelland route.

Magnificent views of the lake basin and the queen of mountains - the Rigi: Welcome to the Hotel Schweizerhof Lucerne. Enjoy Lucerne as a "local tourist" and let yourself be spoilt in the evening with a 4-course menu in the Schweizerhof's Restaurant Galerie. The next day, leave your luggage with the porter and take the S6 to Huttwil. Here you collect your e-bike from the Flyer factory (including an introduction to e-bike riding) and literally fly along the Herzroute through the hilly and rustic Emmental. Passing through the picturesque town of Burgdorf with its castle, you will arrive in Solothurn, where you will spend two nights in the boutique hotel La Couronne. This evening, an elegant three-course dinner will be served in the hotel's restaurant.  The next day, explore the Mittelland route along the tranquil course of the River Aare to Lake Biel! How about a refreshing swim in the lake? Back in Solothurn, another highlight awaits you in the evening: dinner at the trendy Salzhaus restaurant, overlooking the Aare.

  • Ride through the rustic hills of the Emmental with views from the Jura to the Alps, past majestic farmhouses, still on the Herzroute. Stop in Burgdorf and visit the medieval old town with its intact Zähringer castle complex. Our tip: treat yourself to a cold beer from Burgdorf (the town brewery!), for example in the town café!

Prices per person


Total price for 3 nights including e-bike rental
  • CHF 1'109.-per person in a double room
  • CHF 1'369.-in a double room for single occupancy
The trip can also be booked without e-bike rental. ATTENTION: in this case the introduction to the Flyer is also omitted. Of course, in this case you can start the trip already in Lucerne and cycle via Sursee - Langenthal in approx. 6h30min to Solothurn (also nice - but you miss the rustic Emmental). We therefore recommend taking the train to Willisau (start Herzroute) - bikes are allowed on the S6 (please buy your ticket for the bike directly at the SBB, bike transport is not included in this offer).

Total price for 3 nights without e-bike rental

  • CHF 995.-per person in a double room
  • CHF 1'255.-in a double room for single occupancy
 Bookable from April until mid-November 2021 (depending on weather).
