Between the southern shore of Lake Constance and the rolling hills of the Alpine foothills lies a paradise for cyclists: the Thurgau. With over 210,000 fragrant apple trees and more than 1,600 hectares of fruit crops, Thurgau is Switzerland's largest fruit orchard. From April to May, when the flower buds of the fruit trees bloom, the area transforms into a colorful paradise for flower lovers.

However, the Thurgau is known not only for its juicy apples and flowers. The area also offers a diverse cuisine and offers food to suit every budget -- from sophisticated gastronomy to rustic Beiz. You can buy plenty of supplies for your cycle rides at many farms along the way.

However, it’s not only worth visiting Thurgau for lunch. With stunning landscapes, the area is fabulous to explore by bike. We have put together six beautiful tours for you, four of them are two days, with an overnight stay in between. If you only want to do a part of a route, you can easily use the excellent public transport to reach the start and end points.

All tours vary in length and have different levels of difficulty, so there is something for every level. For families, for example, the tour along Lake Constance and the Rhine is ideal as it is flat and mostly follows traffic-free cycle paths. If you want to discover the hidden secrets of Thurgau, the Seerücken route is ideal for you. For those looking to enjoy the culinary offerings of the region, the Mostindien cycle route, the wine route or the pleasure bike tour are ideal. On the Bluescht route, the path revolves around apple blossom. However, not only apples flourish in Thurgau. So that you do not miss the blossom in all its splendor, even a separate hotline has been set up, where Madame Bluescht provides information about where and when the region blooms: +41 71 531 01 30.

All tours start and end in places that you can easily reach by train. On the way, there are also many restaurants and wells with fresh spring water.

    Mostindien - that is the joking name for the canton of Thurgau. This was born from a pun on the word "East India", which points to the eastern location of the Swiss canton. The fact that the word "must" is nicknamed is obvious and comes from the important fruit growing in Thurgau, or the once famous
