Church in Wahlern

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.
