To the timetable


The starting point is the town of Bellinzona, which is known for its castles that are part of UNESCO World Heritage.

From here, you continue through the largest “vegetable garden” in the canton of Ticino, as the Magadino Plains are also called. At Lago Maggiore, the hike soon puts you in a holiday mood as it takes you along the shore promenade towards Locarno. Arriving at the destination, you enjoy a well-earned break on the Piazza Grande before travelling back on public transport.
