slowUp – car-free adventure days throughout Switzerland

In an attractive region, roads are closed to motorised traffic for a day. And along the stretch, a diverse fringe program invites you to be there and actively enjoy. slowUp stretches are as flat as possible, speed and distances are selected individually and there's no charge for taking part. Meanwhile, a total of 20 slowUp events take place throughout Switzerland annually - inviting you to make a positive move.
