You can easily discover the incredibly beautiful and diverse Swabian Alb mountains in Switzerland on an e-bike. From the town of Münsingen in Bern, you cycle through untouched nature in the UNESCO biosphere reserve, gaze in wonder over magnificent landscapes, admire the Alb plateau’s unique flora and fauna, roll through lonely valleys, ride along winding rivers and discover towering castles and palaces. Around Münsingen, there are over 780 kilometres (484 mi) of trails that lead through the wonderful world of the Swabian Alb.

To help you set off on your adventure, we present the 14 most beautiful e-bike Tours from Münsingen in this Collection. The routes are between 28 and 74 kilometres (17 and 46 mi) long. We show you half-day and day Tours as well as an overnight adventure. All of the routes are suitable for all abilities, especially with a little electric help. With a built-in tailwind, you can easily take on the climbs that await in the Swabian Alb. All of the Tours start from the Münsingen Transport Centre at the train station. They have 30 e-bikes available for you to rent so you don’t even need your own e-bike to enjoy the Swabian Alb.

In addition to unforgettable nature, unique habitats and wonderful landscapes, the region offers wonderful culinary experiences. Along the routes, you find numerous refreshment stops where you can replenish your energy supplies. Tuck into Swabian ‘Maultaschen’ (Swabian ravioli), potato salad, ‘Zwiebelrostbraten’ (roast beef with onion) and ‘Spätzle’ (noodles) made using regional products or try a freshly caught trout from the Lauter River. You’ll quickly recharge your batteries and be well prepared for more adventures around Münsingen.
