Guided E-Bike Tours with Celebrities
The enchanting landscape of the region is best discovered by e-bike—for example, on varied themed tours through Northwestern Switzerland organized by Baselland Tourismus. New this year, they are offering the special experience of themed e-bike tours with trained e-bike guides and a prominent guest. Cycling fun; culinary, scenic, and cultural highlights; as well as interesting conversations with exciting personalities are guaranteed.
On this Saturday, the e-bike tour leads through the Upper Baselland area with its charming village centers and diverse landscape. The Baselland folk music singer Sarah-Jane accompanies the tour and leads through her homeland. Enjoy regional products along the way, as well as sweeping views over the Basel area.
The 39-km tour (approximately 1,000 meters in altitude change) will start at the Gelterkinden train station at 9:30 (meeting point). From there, the tour gently leads uphill over the Gelterkinderberg to Rünenberg, where you fortify yourself with coffee and croissants. From there, the tour leads to Bad Ramsach, where beautiful views over the Basel area beckon. A leisurely lunch with regional products awaits you on the wonderful terrace of the Quellhotel Bad Ramsach. The journey then continues through the pretty villages of the upper Baselland region and their farm shops. The next stop is scheduled for the Oltiger Märt. Immerse yourself in the colorful hustle and bustle of the market with many stalls with specialties from the region. Another pleasant stop with dessert is planned on the terrace of the Farnsburg country inn. The tour ends back at the Gelterkinden train station.
You will need to bring your own e-bike and make sure that the battery is sufficiently charged for the tour of around 39 km/1,000 meters in altitude. (At the Quellhotel Bad Ramsach and Landgasthof Farnsburg there is a charging station for a maximum of 5 e-bikes.) The tours are suitable for e-bikes with a motor-assisted speed of up to 25 km/h (since the route partly leads over forest roads, fast e-bikes with a motor-assisted speed of up to 40 km/h are not permitted).
The cost of this tour is CHF 89, which includes the trained tour guide, the prominent escort by celebrity Sarah-Jane, and lunch of regional specialties with dessert (drinks and morning coffee break extra).
