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.

Pile Dwellings around the Alps

The series of “Prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps“ comprises a selection of 111 of the almost 1,000 known archaeological pile dwelling stations in the six countries surrounding the Alps. (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Slovenia). Of these, 56 are discovered in Switzerland.

Ruined monastery – former Cluniac priory

In the Middle Ages, one of the most important monastery buildings in Switzerland and an important stopping place on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. After the Reformation, the monastery, already partly in ruins, was finally closed. It was used only as a source of stone, and sometimes as a barn. Today, the magnificent ruins are used for cultural events, and walkers on the way to Santiago like to visit it as a source of strength and an impressive sight.
