An ode to the Emmental: versatile, far-reaching and extremely rich.
The new e-bike circular tour Herzschlaufe with the No. 499 leads from Langnau to the Blapbach, then after a fantastic descent down to Eggiwil and immediately uphill again: first over beautiful serpentines to the Chapf, then from Linden over steep ramps to the "Güggel". Later the route passes the castles of Hünigen, Ursellen and Schlosswil before disappearing via Möschberg into little-known altitudes. Only in Signau does one come to one's senses again and enjoy the gondola ride back to Langnau.
Fresh country air fills the lungs, and cycling is once again a poem. It is not without reason that this area is called "Hügu Himu".
Langnau i.E., the starting point of the e-bike tour, is easily reached by public transport. The Rent a Bike station is situated right next to the train station.
