Your local guide Ralf picks you up and you are kindly requested to sign a waiver where you declare that you have experience in riding a bike in the city traffic, that you know and respect the traffic regulations and that you are in good health.

Then you walk to the next bike rental station which is in walking distance. Your local guide rents your bike and hands it over to you. After some practicing and explanation of the most important traffic rules you follow your guide and ride your bike to the historical center.

The first stop is at the Chapel Bridge and Water Tower where you get brief information on the most photographed attraction in Switzerland.
