The Heart Route leads through some of the loveliest parts of prealpine Switzerland. The secluded trails, far from traffic noise and all hustle and bustle, are particularly appealing for exploring by electric bike. The route offers heart-warming encounters with the countryside and people.

From the highlight of Einsiedeln, the route follows the north shore of Lake Sihl. After the steep climb to the highest point of the Heart Route and a fast descent to Lake Zurich, you reach the tranquillity of the Buechberg forest. Rapperswil welcomes travellers with its southern charm.
