Hiking: Trans Swiss Trail

From the Three Lakes Region to Emmental

Starting from Neuchâtel, you hike on the Trans Swiss Trail past the Fanel nature reserve. A huge reed belt provides a safe home for over 300 bird species. Now it is only a stone's throw away and Murten with its pretty old town has been reached.

But also the next destination, the small town Laupen, presents itself nicely and worth seeing. The hiker then finds the hustle and bustle in Bern almost hectic before continuing on quiet paths along the rivers Aare and Emme. Untouched villages and warm hosts await you in the end in the Emmental region.  

Itinerary

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.

approx. 16 km

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.

approx. 3.5 h
approx. 14 km

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.

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.

approx. 4 h
approx. 16 km

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.

approx. 6.5 h

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.
