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.

Walk on the Jakobsweg from Wattenwil via Riggisberg to Schwarzenburg

The Jakobsweg leads from Wattenwil in the Gürbetal valley through the rural landscape of the Schwarzenburgerland up to Schwarzenburg. There are fantastic views of the Stockhorn mountain range all along the way, whilst on the other side you can see over towards western Switzerland. You walk through small villages with picture-postcard churches. In Rüeggisberg there are some impressive ruins of a former monastery.

The Way of St. James: Schwarzenburg-Fribourg

This pilgrimage does not always have to lead to Santiago de Compostela - an impressive section of the Way of St. James is the ViaJacobi, a five hour walk from Schwarzenburg to Fribourg. This stretch is considered the most exciting part of the Way of St. James in Switzerland and has been used by the Jakobspilger - the St. James pilgrims - since the Middle Ages.
