SignalizationYou cycle along the Rhone route no. 1 via Ernen until you reach the tunnel entrance at "Steimaata" and then follow the cycle and hiking trail (unpaved road) through the Twingi gorge. At the end of the gorge the trail ascends to the main road to Binn.
For the return journey we recommend a small detour (5min) to Ze Binne, a tiny picturesque hamlet above the reservoir (turn left at the bus stop Langthal below Binn). At the entrance to Ausserbinn turn right and follow the TCS cycling route 1 up and over the hill (road partly unpaved) to Ernen and from Ernen take the Rhone route back to Blitzingen.

Hamlet of Bodme with its past
Even today, the small settlement of Bodmen displays all components of a genuine independent village; chapel, residential and utility buildings, trails, alleys and courtyards, scattered green area are integrated into a fascinating community.
This deep gorge used to be a difficult passage in the trade route over the Albrun pass to Italy. Today the old track with small natural rock tunnels and rare flowers offers a spectacular landscape experience.
Historic village Mühlebach
Make a stop in the small hamlet and look at the sunburned houses: Mühlebach has the oldest village centre in Switzerland of timber construction. Here there is a signposted house trail leading to objects worthy of seeing.
Ernen village square
The showpiece of Ernen is the village square (Dorfplatz), around which numerous historic buildings are grouped, e.g. the St. Georg tavern (1535), the "Tellenhaus" (1576) with the oldest Tell frescos in Switzerland or the "Zendenrathaus" (dated 1750).
The hotel was built 125 years ago for English visitors - Winston Churchill also stayed in the Binn Valley in 1897.
