Walk along the Aare River from Grenchen – Altreu
The attractive banks of the Aare offer nature and recreation for everyone, especially when the deciduous trees are wearing their autumn colours. The well way-marked paths along the Aare indicate a one hour walk from Grenchen bridge to Altreu. The lake-land area offers varied and beautiful walking and biking possibilities. It also has access to the largest single water sports’ area and therefore underlines the region’s special charm. From Solothurn to Yverdon-Les-Bains, from Neuenburg to Murten, together with the romantic landscapes, excursion boats also offer culinary and further highlights for the guest. The "savoir vivre" also accompanies them through this bilingual region. This stretch is also very easy to negotiate by bike (fly and bike from Grenchen Airport). Rest your weary legs after a hike by returning by bus or boat after a restful stay in a cosy pub. The routes along the banks of the river are also attractive. You can reach them from the Airport by foot or by bike to Büren
...And in between, bathe in the cool Aare …for example from the sandbank at Altreu, at the new Aare bridge on the Archer side and further up at the fishing hut at Rüti. For good swimmers: an enjoyable drift down from Bettlach-Rank.
