Wynental-Route

Wynental-Route

From the tourism and farming country of Central Switzerland through «Stumpenland» (cigar country) in the industrial patchwork of the Swiss Mittelland, watched by a silent radio transmitter, guarded by baroque angels, accompanied by tiny railways and thatched roofs, plastic steam and the fragrant aroma of baking bread.
The route leaves the tourist city of Lucerne alongside the turquoise River Reuss, crosses the industrial and multi-culti town of Emmenbrücke and the picturesque small town of Rothenburg. It slowly escapes the agglomeration and climbs gently through a rolling landscape with scattered farmsteads and small hamlets. In Römerswil, 90 farmers still work the lush green land on the flat rise of the Erlosen, the source of the small streams that feed the Wyna.

After crossing the rise (794 m) the 215 metre-high transmitter of Radio Beromünster appears to the west. This fell silent in 2008 after 77 years of medium-wave broadcasts. Because of the name of the transmitter, in 1934, Münster was renamed Beromünster, where the ornately decorated collegiate church encircled by canons’ houses is enthroned above the historic market town. The railway ran to «Möischter» until 1992: today the tracks run in leisurely fashion down to the agglomeration of Menziken/Reinach, where the first flexible aluminium foil was pressed in 1905 and where aluminium is still processed.

In the region, also known as «Stumpenland» (cigar country), only the major cigar names of Burger and Villiger have survived: the famous Rössli cigars have been smoked since 1933. In the Menziken Tobacco Museum, cigar boxes with the aroma of tobacco recall the heyday of cigars. Often unspoilt and bordered by bushes, the Wyna winds through the wide glaciated valley, under the eye of thatched granaries dating from 1540 at Oberkulm and the tiny castles of Trostburg and Liebegg above Teufenthal. On the way to Suhr, the plastic industry and large JOWA bakery supply a rich contrast of aromas. The route then runs alongside the Stadtbach, through suburbs to Aarau.
