4th stage: St. Urban - Gstaad
Welcome to the beautiful Mittelland. Nestled in the border area between Central Switzerland and Bern/Aarau are Pfaffnau and St. Urban, which together form one municipality. Close to the motorway exit Reiden you reach our village within 10 minutes by car.
Its rural character, central location and well-developed infrastructure are some of the many advantages that speak for the attractiveness of the Rottal municipality in the middle of the three cantons of Lucerne, Bern and Aargau. The stage finish in St. Urban also takes on a special character with the fairytale-like monastery in the middle of the town.
The municipality, with its two districts of Pfaffnau and St. Urban, has a population of around 2,600.
The Destination Gstaad enjoys a high level of prestige and international renown. In spite of this, it has remained truly Alpine, with its chic charm, British understatement and authentic traditions. Or as acting legend Julie Andrews once said: "Gstaad is the last paradise in a crazy world".
The biking region of Gstaad is home to over 500 kilometres of GPS tours for mountain bikers, road bikers and e-bikers, signposted routes, an e-bike charging system, specialised biking hotels, two pumptracks as well as other facilities. Gstaad is first and foremost a destination for visitors wishing to ride on technically moderate routes while combining their sporting activities with typically „gstaad-like“ experiences. The destination is still an insider’s tip for keen road bikers. Enjoy unforgettable moments in the saddle as you combine uniquely varied touring and training options with Alpine adventure, physical and mental revitalisation, and endless fun.
