Lugano in Ticino – A highlight on the Harley Road Map 2024

The venue is in Lugano, in the beautiful holiday region of Ticino, which is one of the Harley-Davidson events that I have on my road map for 2024. The event in Switzerland has a two-year rhythm. Planning at Harley-Davidson for the 2024 event is underway and the program is in place.

According to Harleysite information, Harley-Davidson will change the concept slightly. For the first time there will be an “Andermatt Freedom Ride” starting in Andermatt. The official Harley-Davidson dealers will be offering the new models and an extensive range from the MotorClothes Collection in the EXPO AREA.

I recommend subscribing to Harleysite newsletter I've already picked out a few tips and information about Lugano for you here.

The town of Lugano in beautiful Ticino, Switzerland

Lugano is one of the most famous cities in Ticino, the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. The city offers a mix of Swiss and Italian culture and is known for its breathtaking nature, art and quality of life. The place has a very beautiful promenade and a particularly beautiful old town.

With over 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, Lugano is also one of the sunniest places in Switzerland. The super-rich also know this, because of the 64,000 inhabitants, over 5,000 are millionaires and 31 of them have over 100 million, 31 are even billionaires. George Clooney is also said to be spending time with his family near Lake Como in the summer. In Lugano it is quite possible to meet one or two film stars, racing drivers and musicians, if you recognize them.

And right in the middle of all the glitz and glamour, the Swiss Harley Days place. I've visited Lugano itself before, it's definitely worth it, especially in connection with Harley-Davidson. That's what makes it special, no matter how different the Harley-Davidson events and venues may be, it's all there.

Switzerland generally offers a lot of beautiful photo opportunities, and an extensive tour is worth it.

The Monte Brè mountain near Lugano

At around 925 meters above sea level, it is not one of the highest mountains in Switzerland, but it offers one of the most beautiful views of the surrounding region, including Lake Lugano and the Alps.

Highlights

  • Beautiful view : From the summit you have a spectacular view of Lugano, Lake Lugano and even the Alps.
  • Restaurants : There are a few mountain restaurants where you can enjoy local Ticino specialties.
  • Photography : The viewpoints are ideal for landscape photography.

Directions

  • Cable car : The easiest way to reach Monte Brè is the Lugano-Cassarate cable car.
  • On the Harley : There is also a road that leads to the summit, but it is quite narrow and winding.

Local laws

  • In Switzerland you always have to wear a helmet.
  • Pay attention to the speed limits, the penalties can be quite high.
  • There are noise cameras in Switzerland, but at the moment it's probably still the case that they only indicate that you're being too loud.
  • The following speed limits apply: in towns 50 km/h, outside towns 80 km/h, expressways (motorways) 100 km/h, motorways 120 km/h. It is recommended that you stick to it at all costs, as the penalties are very high in Switzerland.

Toll obligation

When do I need a vignette: Cars, motorcycles, caravans, vans and campers up to 3.5 tonnes require a vignette on Swiss motorways and motorway roads. It is available as an adhesive vignette and also as an e-vignette for around 40 CHF (around €42), as an annual vignette. You can order the vignette online here!
