Emmental walking tours

From Lucerne to Berne

Coined through meadows and grazing land, the lovely landscape of Emmental is located in front of high peaks between the well known cities Lucerne and Bern, which are start- and end point of this walking tour. Our walking week leads along many small hills away from Lucerne´s city life towards mountain Napf, the highest peak of the Emmental region. You pass idyllic villages, discover typical farmhouses and walk along rivers through silent valleys. And finally Bern is awaiting you at the end of your journey, the Swiss capital city with its Bärengraben and well-known cathedral.

Landschaftlich sehr schön
Es war eine sehr schöne Wanderung. Vor allem hat mir die Landschaft gefallen. Wiesen (Weiden) und Wälder wechseln sich ab. Immer wieder gab es herrliche Blicke auf die Berner Alpen. Die Landschaft mit den schönen Bauernhöfen erinnert mich an den Südschwarzwald.
