Walking the Pilgrim Trail to Würzbrunnen

Signau–Chuderhüsi–Würzbrunnen–Röthenbach i. E. (16.8 km, 4 hours 50 minutes)

This spectacular, panoramic walk was already being undertaken in the early Middle Ages. Following in the footsteps of the pilgrims, the trail passes by the castle ruins of Alt Signau and the Chapf vantage point to the 42-metre-high Chuderhüsi observation tower. The walk can also be concluded here (please observe the timetable information for the return journey). The historic walking trail ends at the 1,000-year-old Würzbrunnen pilgrimage church and small former monastery in Röthenbach i. E.

      Experience report Travelita

      Anita Brechbühl, better known as Travelita, wrote a review of her hike from Signau to Chuderhüsi in July 2020:

      «Zuerst Sonnig, gegen den Mittag ziehen Gewitterwolken auf», diese Wetterprognosen verleiteten uns dazu, einmal mehr zeitig in den Wandertag zu starten. Ausgangspunkt unserer heutigen Tour ist Signau im Emmental, das wir mit einmal Umsteigen in Bern unkompliziert und überraschend schnell mit dem Zug weiter lesen.
