Lützelflüh

Lützelflüh, the lovely village between Langnau and Burgdorf in the lower Emmental, is mainly known as the Gotthelf Village: pastor and poet Albert Bitzius, better known as Jeremias Gotthelf worked here from 1832 until his death in 1854.
Pastor and author Albert Bitzius alias Jeremias Gotthelf (1797 – 1854) is buried in Lützelflüh cemetery. A Gotthelf fountain with a figure of his famous character «Ueli der Knecht» has stood in the grounds of Lützelflüh primary school since 1942. A Gotthelf memorial is found above the church and parish hall. The Gotthelf-Stube, the tiny Gotthelf Museum in the vicarage storehouse, exhibits personal mementos of the poet, portraits, sculptures, translations of his work, older and more recent editions and text extracts etc. (open April to October).

Gotthelf’s grave lies to the left of the imposing Lützelflüh Church dating from 1505 (renovated in 1962). Two more authors are also buried here, namely Simon Gfeller and Emanuel Friedli.

A sightseeing attraction in the village with its attractive farmhouses is the Kulturmühle, one of the loveliest mills in the Emmental. Built in 1821, the mill was used until 1970 and now serves as a cultural venue for exhibitions, concerts, minor arts and private events etc.

Another cultural monument did not manage to survive: the medieval Brandis Fortress between the villages of Lützelflüh and Rüegsau, once the seat of the Bernese bailiff, fell victim to a disastrous fire in 1798. A nature educational trail from Lützelflüh to Rüegsauschachen leads up to the Brandis ruins, where a lovely barbecue spot has been built.

Another educational trail with information panels on dairy farming, field and crop cultivation, forest and timber, leads from Ramsei near Lützelflüh over Ramisberg and Bänzeberg (lovely views of the Bernese Alps) to Zollbrück.

The saline baths at the Aemme Fit fitness centre are an unusual attraction for such a small place as Lützelflüh. The village also has outdoor and indoor swimming pools. The Haflinger Centre at Trachselwald between Lützelflüh and Sumiswald has a wide range of offers around horses: carriage rides, riding lessons etc.
