Whether you're on a day trip or a few days' holiday, you certainly won't be bored in the Emmental region. Hiking, snow shoe walking, Nordic walks, panning for gold, golf, cycling, riding, pottery - something to satisfy virtually every desire.
You'll find everything here from the legendary Emmental cheese to ham, to a Gault&Millau menu, an almost unparalleled range on offer and often made from regional products (Ämmitaler Ruschtig). Staying overnight is also a pleasure: Keen on a **** hotel, including wellness facilities? Or how about a room with a view above the mist line? Or experience "how they used to live in the days of Gotthelf", without any running water or electricity? Something to suit each and every individual.
National museums like the Franz Gertsch Museum, the Zither Museum or the Museum of Folk Culture in the Grain House have their place here in the Emmental region just as much as regional exhibitions in the Chüechlihus or Culture Mill. Castles, wooden bridges, the cheese dairy which is open to the general public, themed paths, Alpine horn makers, idyllic farms are an embodiment of the region as of course is Jeremias Gotthelf, the great philosopher and poet.
