Marbach

Marbach – part of the UNESCO Entlebuch Biosphere Reserve – lies in southern Entlebuch in the Ilfis Valley, 5 km south of Wiggen on the Schallenbergstrasse in the direction of Thun. The Marbachegg is popular as a small, family-friendly ski area.
The Schärlig and Marbachegg regions also belong to the municipal district. Marbach is the most south-westerly municipality in Canton Lucerne; the western and southern boundaries also form the cantonal boundary to Bern. Extensive hilly and mountainous areas of the municipality are covered in forest. The highest summits are the Schiengütsch (2037 m) and Hengst (2092 m) in the Schrattenfluh. The River Ilfis rises beneath the Hengst.

In addition to its beautiful 18th century baroque church, the village, altitude 871m, also has a Way of the Cross leading to a replica of the Virgin Mary Holy Grotto at Lourdes. A photovoltaic system installed in 1992 serves as a pilot project for the production of renewable energy.

Marbach is known as a small family-friendly winter-sport station. An aerial gondola and numerous skilifts provide access to the skiing area on the sunny terrace of Marbachegg. The mostly easy to medium-difficulty runs find an enthusiastic following amongst a wide range of skiers. Cross-country skiers and ski tourers find suitable runs and routes at Talboden and Schärliger. In summer, as well as the classic sports (hiking, biking, e.g. towards Kemmeri-boden, Bumbach, Sörenberg, Flühli or Hilfernthal), trendy options such as a Trottinerbe (downhill trail over grass carpeting and a wooden track) are also on offer.

Marbach is part of the first UNESCO biosphere reserve in Switzerland: the Entlebuch Biosphere Reserve encompasses a valuable moorland landscape with rare fauna and flora of international importance. The Marbach municipal district extends to the Schrattenfluh, an impressive karst area in the pre-Alps. Guided tours and theme trails open up the variety of landscapes and natural beauty to the public.
