At the Bärrüti a small path leads you up to an alpine panorama path, where you can enjoy beautiful views onto the surrounding peaks. At the end of your walking tour you reach Luthern Bad with its pilgrimage church Maria-Heilbronn.
Today the royal stage is awaiting you. Mountain Napf is with its 1.408 m the highest peak of the Emmental region, so an amazing view is guaranteed. Nevertheless the walk up, to enjoy a bewitching panorama onto the hills of the region is demanding.
