UNESCO Biosphere Tour

Karst walk on the Schrattenfluh with cave expedition

Join the adventure! Discover the Teufelsspuren (literally the “Devil’s Marks”, deep grooves in the limestone) and climb down a long ladder into the cave known as the Silwängenhöhle. Once you’ve arrived in the mysterious underground world, you’ll be able to find unique dripstone formations and colourful walls of rock. The UNESCO Biosphere also offers courses, excursions and adventures on a variety of topics related to the UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere Reserve at Entlebuch. From cooking with wild herbs to the Alpine horn and from wood sculpting to baking rye bread, there’s something to satisfy every taste.
