Meiringen is a popular and pretty village in the Bernese Oberland, close to the Reichenbach Waterfall made famous in the Sherlock Holmes adventures. From here you ride alongside the Lakes of Brienz and Thun and through the town of Interlaken. The scenery is spectacular as the high mountains of this region tower above you. Beyond Thun the countryside surrounding your riverside route becomes hilly rather than mountainous as you approach the Swiss capital, Bern. There is plenty to see here before continuing to the town of Biel and its lake. The route then takes you to the picturesque towns of Solothurn and Olten where it is fascinating to stroll through the narrow streets of the old parts of the towns. The River Aare is then followed further to your journey's end in Aarau.
