Alpine Panorama Trail

A perfect panoramic route through the typical rolling landscape of old-world Emmental! Continually up and down along a mostly wide range of hills from the Napf, past small farmsteads, alps and woodlands to Lüderenalp,
The high route between Napf and Lüderenalp with the amazing views is one of the most beautiful and popular hikes in the Emmental Valley. Walking in peace, away from the noise of traffic and civilization, you feel the soothing effects of the lovely rolling landscape. Hiking across the trails, ridges and meadows of the Napf area is like traveling back in time. The trail passes solitary traditional farms and mountain inns where the farmers still serve you personally.

The highest part of this stage and the entire Napf region is the starting point: the peak of Napf Mountain with the hotel at 1406 m. The elevation of this area was formed millions of years ago by boulder deposits of the powerful original Aare into the former Molasse Sea of the Mittelland region. Even during the ice age, the area was not covered by ice. The characteristic topography of the Napf environment changed in conjunction with the ongoing effects of erosion. From Hotel Napf the pleasant high route leads down to Niederänzi and Hochänzi.

The trail steadily continues up and down. When the weather is clear, you always have a fantastic view of the Alps and the Mittelland region, all the way to the Jura Mountains. The well-known Oberlus Hut is located about half way through today’s hike. It is a great place to take a break and enjoy the view of the snow-capped Wetterhörner. You continue via Geissgratflue to Lüderenalp, a popular destination with beautiful panoramic views of the Bernese Alps and the Jura Mountains. This is where you find the world’s longest bench (38.03 m) made of one single tree trunk. Another highlight known far and wide is the “Lüderen Fest” which takes place every year in early August.
