Tufteren–Europaweg–Täsch Bike Tour (Nr. 4)

This route is for experienced mountain bikers. The trail is relatively easy to start with, but quickly becomes challenging. You’ll be rewarded with cool single trails and incredible views of the mountains.

  • Type Mountain biking
  • Difficulty S3 hard
  • Duration 2,00 h
  • Distance 12,8 km
  • Ascent 211 m
  • Descent 989 m
  • Lowest point 1450 m
  • Highest point 2349 m


From Sunnegga a flat road takes you to the Tufterenalp, where the tour starts.

At Tufteren, the trail continues over the famous Europaweg. On the Höhenweg heading towards Täschalp, there are some sections when you'll need to pedal a bit. Some points on the Europaweg are also exposed and it is recommended that you get off your bike and push.

Some of the tour is on the road, from Täschalp to where it branches off on the single trail to Blasboden.  At the branch there is stream and a barbecue area for a final break before the descent to Täsch.


Alternative: If you get tired sooner, you can decide to do “less” and branch off straight to Blasboden, avoiding the strenuous loop across the Täschalp.
