The journey from Willisau to Langnau over the foothills of the Napf is a delight. The route approaches the cascades of hills and always finds a clever way around them. Only after the Luthertal does the route lift and lead to a magnificent vantage point from which one can look far out into the Mittelland. Free of traffic, one revels in the lovely hillside scenery that one sweepingly circles. Soon you reach the cantonal border and can enjoy the regions of Oberaargau and Emmental. In Sumiswald, the Emmental becomes a defining experience, with its increasingly hilly passages. The FLYER masters the ramps with assurasnce and we enjoy the origin of this rich region, which rises to over 1100 meters as far as Lüderenalp. Here you can feel it, this Napf power, as it seeps out of the landscape and enchants our senses. An epic descent takes us to Langnau, the center and paradise of the Emmental.

Author’s recommendation

Make a short stop in Trachselwald and enter the public courtyard of the beautiful "Schloss Trachselwald".
