There are various possibilities for spectators to combine Bern Boat Race with a hike. The start- and finish-line are at the Wohlen bridge (Wohleibrücke). From there, the path along the shore path leads to a nice picnic area, and the race can be followed from numerous points along the trail. The turn-around point, at Otto's Place, is also visible from the shore.
