Langnau i. E.

Langnau in Oberemmental is known as a centre for Emmental cheese. But the village with its stately inns has long been a modern commercial, trade and service centre located amidst the beautiful rolling and forested landscape of the Emmental.
In Langnau, small-town activity predominates amidst the beautiful hilly and wooded landscape of the Emmental. Langnau ceased to be a purely farming village very early on and became more a mixture of commerce and trade. In the Late Middle Ages, the village was granted market rights, something usually reserved for towns. In the 18th/19th centuries, the production of the legendary Emmental cheese and also linen made Langnau one of the most important and highly populated business locations in Canton Bern. The through railway line, Bern – Lucerne via Langnau has been in operation since 1875.

The history of Langnau can be experienced on a round tour of the village. The Langnau Regional Museum in the 500-year-old «Chüechlihus», presents many fascinating facts on history, farming and handwork in the region. Of particular note is the «Micheli-Schüppach-Stube», a reminder of the Wunderdoktor (miracle doctor), whose fame spread far beyond Swiss borders.

Today Langnau is a modern village, but numerous stately farmhouses and inns are reminders of the past. These include the majestic Landgasthof Hirschen on the Dorfstrasse. The «Langnou Märit» maintains the Langnau market tradition and is held six times a year: as Fastnacht (carnival), May, summer and autumn markets, the Kalter (cold) market in November and the Christmas market.

Lush green meadows, extensive forests, hidden streams, views to the peaks of the Bernese Alps and the Jura chain typify the rolling landscape around Langnau. Countryside just made for leisure and active pursuits. Farmhouses richly adorned with geraniums give character to the scattered settlements around the area. Long side valleys to the River Ilfis, e.g. the Gohlgraben and Oberfrittenbachgraben are typical features of the landscape. Above the latter, the highest silver firs in the region stand in the Dürsrütiwald forest, one of many nearby destinations for scenic strolls.

Highlights

  • Langnauer Regionalmuseum «Chüechlihus» - insight into Langnau history and traditions and the hilly landscape of the Oberemmental.
  • Wooden bridges in Emmental – numerous covered wooden bridges from the last almost 500 years can be seen around Langnau.
  • Emmental cheese – thanks to its cheese, the name Emmental is known virtually throughout the world. Langnau has traditionally played an important role in cheese making and marketing.
  • Hohwacht (south of Langnau) – one of the many vantage points with beautiful views over the Emmental hills and woodlands, perfect for bikers and hikers.
