The loveliest way to see the mystery-enshrouded Emmental is on the country lanes that weave through it.


After passing through Burgdorf and crossing the Emme River, a right turn brings you onto a minor road that leads through dense forest and up to high plains towards Hueb, past grand farmhouses with heavy-lidded hip roofs that protect them from bad weather. A highlight is the Lueg, where locals seek out sunshine when fog cloaks the valley below. Picture-book hamlets like Heiligenland, pretty gardens and wide open meadows give a snapshot of farming life in the Emmental on the drive to Affoltern i. E.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
