Once again, the Lenkerhof alpine resort in the pure Swiss Simmental region is one step ahead: it is the first hotel to offer its guests excursions with the brand-new "Stromer" electric bike, which has just celebrated its world-premiere in Switzerland
Discovering the countryside in the Bernese Oberland by bicycle is a very special experience: the clear air, the freshness of the wind, the fragrance of alpine flowers, sunbeams that tickle your nose.... Guests of the Lenkerhof alpine resort have long known these sensual pleasures. But they also know how exerting it is to explore the mountainous Alpine region on two wheels.
Now even those who associate physical exertion with stress can find athletic fun in the pedalling sport: with the Stromer electric bike, the Swiss company Thömus has succeeded in designing a bike with a trendy look and a battery elegantly concealed in its frame, which, thanks to its electric motor, practically goes by itself.
The innovative vehicle was first displayed in March at the Bike Expo in Oberried, near Bern. In the Lenkerhof alpine resort, known as an innovative and the most youthful five-star superior hotel in Switzerland, the guests can become acquainted with the Stromer with the opening of the hotel's season at the end of May: six Stromer e-bikes are available for excursions. Every Wednesday, Hotel Director Daniel Borter personally accompanies his guests on the excursions - with a rucksack full of refreshments and snacks on his back.
"We can easily manage a climb of 600 meters. Particularly guests who are not in great physical condition, can now experiencing the mountains with their wonderful views – it is something quite special," says Daniel Borter.
