Advice needed on cycle route from Freiburg to Zürich

I'm going to be cycling from Freiburg in Germany to Zürich and I would appreciate some advice on what route to take. I was thinking of basically following the Rhine from Freiburg all the way to Waldshut and then following the route of the Limmat from there into Zürich. It's longer than a more direct way but I thought it'd be better to sacrifice the extra distance for the sake of a flat ride. Has anyone ridden along the Rhine/Limmat? Are there cycle paths or quietish roads next to the rivers? Any other potentail problems to bare in mind? Thanks in advance!

Re: Advice needed on cycle route from Freiburg to Zürich

I know the Rhine from Basel to Koblenz, Aare from Koblenz to Turgi and then Limmat from Turgi into Zürich quite well. On the Swiss side there are well-signposted mostly traffic free cycle paths. I wouldn't anticipate any problems. There are plenty of water fountains, shops and restaurants and a few nice sights to see.

I can't comment on the section from Freiburg to Basel. Hope you ahve fun and the weather is good.

Cheers
