Regional Museum «Chüechlihus» Langnau i. E.

The Emmental in one house

The Chüechlihus Regional Museum is one of the largest and most diverse regional museums with a cultural history collection in Switzerland. It got its name from the coffee house that operated until 1956 and was famous for its "Chüechli" - fat-baked biscuits.

Today, the regional museum provides lively insights into the cultural heritage of the Upper Emmental, from the alpine cheese dairy to the SCL Tigers, for young and old. Immerse yourself in the history and present of the Upper Emmental in one of the oldest buildings in the region that has largely been preserved in its original state: discover the everyday life, trades and crafts of the Emmental and meet important personalities of the region. The museum includes a permanent exhibition with 26 exhibition rooms, a temporary exhibition on current topics, a museum shop and an Honesty Bar.

You can easily reach Langnau by train. The regional museum is only a 5-minute walk from the station.
