Distances: 110 km
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

On the 110 km route from Berne to Interlaken, escorted by police and the race entourage, you’ll feel like a true professional. The race begins at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, which was a starting and finishing point for stages of the Tour de France in 2016. From there, the route leads you through the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE of the old city of Bern and over the Längenberg, with views of the impressive 4,000 m peaks of the Bernese Oberland, before continuing towards the picturesque city of Thun. After a steep climb, you are rewarded with magnificent views of Lake Thun from your vantage point high above the water.

Continuing through the unique Alpine landscape, the route passes through Sigriswil on the way to Beatenberg, where you can enjoy imposing views of the world-famous triple peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. You’ll then complete the last of the 2,500 metres of ascent in the direction of Interlaken before hurtling downhill. Summon the last of your energy as you enter the final straight, passing alongside the world-famous Höhematte before crossing the finishing line.
