They say this is the fairest region of all in Emmental. The alpine hike from Lüderenalp on the Napf runs close to the ridge on a narrow path and past rustic inns. A beautiful view over the Alps, the Mittelland and the Jura is your constant companion.
Secluded paths along the riverbanks contrast with centuries old small towns. The river landscape presents its romantic side and then again its natural side, and in the thermal spa its more zesty side. Towering above all this are mighty castles and palaces.
The ViaRhenana, one of Switzerland's longest hiking trails, runs for ten days along the historic waterway between Untersee and Hochrhein. The fourth stage takes four hours from Schaffhausen to Rheinau with its baroque monastery church.
