The Rhine Knee, Liestal and the Ergolz Valley are hives of activity. In marked contrast: the tranquil, charming countryside of the Jura mountains in the Basel region. The journey continues through the hills of the Jura Park, followed by a thrilling descent across the southern heights of the Jura and down to Aarau.
