Lama trekking

Lama trekking – Vroni and Martin Mäder belong to the not quite conventional farming families in the Schwarzenburg region. Put differently, how many farmers are there that keep eight lamas? The tour to the impressive Grasburg ruin is just one example of an experience-packed excursion with the undemanding lamas. A party of at least four people is required for a full or half-day tour, or for a short introductory trek.

Gnome garden

Sehenswürdigkeiten / Aktivitäten – This "family" of a very special kind grows from year to year: Jürg U. Ernst conjures up gnomes from concrete. He recounts the stories of these large-eyed beings on tours. Visitors will be able to step into Pluto's head and enjoy a commanding view over the bizarre oasis from his crown. And all to the accompaniment of the waste disposal unit, which devours the drinking cups of visitors to the gnome garden... Open on set days in the summer, and by arrangement.

Church in Wahlern

Abbeys & churches – On an idyllic hill north of Schwarzenburg. Known for its panorama of the Schwarzenburg region and the Alps, their foothills and as far as the Jura. This makes the church a popular place for weddings. The large organ is unusual: Wahlern was the first country church around Bern to receive an organ built by the organ-builder Viktor Bosshard in 1758. It has been restored several times since.
