We took the Aare Trail trip in Switzerland. I had thought the best city was going to be scenic Bern, but unknown Solothurn was even more impressive. The hotel you arranged was fabulous; it was built in 1571. The owner greeted us upon entry. After we settled into our rooms we spent the rest of the afternoon strolling through the quaint medival town. The pedestrian-only old town was built between 1530 and 1792 and shows an impressive array of Baroque architecture, combining Italian Grandezza, French style, and Swiss ideas. The town has eighteen structures listed as heritage sites!! To top it off, we saw Roger Federer entering the Jura expresso machine conference.

This is a beautiful bike ride along the Aare River and ends up biking along the Rhine River. The route is somewhat more challenging in terms of hills than we expected and much of the trail is gravel rather than paved. Nevertheless nearly all of the trail is away from busy roadways through country fields providing an interesting means to view Swiss life. The trails were not crowded and the Swiss people were appreciative of us as tourists. Constance is an ideal ending with beautiful views of the Bodensee. Our main disappointment was that in several towns the hotel was a considerable distance from the bike trail and we had some difficulty finding our accommodations.
