The Lac de Neuchâtel is crossed by boat. Imposing Mont Vully is visible from afar. Short but steep climb. Wonderful panorama. Through the fertile shoreline forest of Le Chablais to the medieval town of Murten.
Murten – Laupen
Leisurely over the rolling hills of the Fribourg Mittelland. Shady forest sections interchange with open asphalted village sections. The confluence of the Saane and Sense rivers is a near-to-nature experience.
Laupen – Bern
The route follows the River Sense, then winds up to the heights with views of the Alpine peaks. Proud farmsteads in Mengestorf stand in contrast to the residential outskirts of Bern, where the old town is a UNESCO World Heritage.
Bern – Worb
Delightful hike along the River Aare, first through urban areas, then through one of Switzerland’s loveliest river landscapes. The renaturation of the river banks has brought great benefit. Worb Castle is seen from afar but is not open to the public.
Worb – Ranflüh
Above Worb, the typical Emmental terrain begins with the long "Eggen" (hills) and the steep "Chrächen" (ditches). Fantastic views of the Alps and Jura. In the older part of the village of Lützelflüh you will find the Gotthelf Stube.
A varied hike along the river Emme, past shale banks and small falls, over old wooden bridges and through riverside woodland. The Heimatmuseum (folk museum) in the «Chüechlihus» (16th-century timber building) in Langnau, Emmental’s main town, is worth a visit.
Simple, not excessively strenuous stages. Some steep ascents and descents are the only challenges on this hike.
