Herzschlaufe Gotthelf

Circular e-bike tour 699 from Langnau im Emmental

The new loop leads through Central Emmental, the land of Jeremias Gotthelf. Albert Bitzius, the village pastor in Lützelflüh, would probably have used an e-bike himself if they had existed back in his day. Now you can discover the area that inspired him so much 175 years ago. The picturesque hills, the expansive views and the unique farmhouses make this route a worthy addition to the e-bike paradise of “Hügu Himu”.

With direct public transport connections from Bern, Burgdorf and Lucerne, you can travel to Langnau im Emmental to reach the starting point of the Herzschlaufe Gotthelf (circular tour) in comfort. The Rent a Bike station is situated right next to the train station.
