Riffling, retting, breaking, scutching, heckling, spinning, spooling, weaving – the annual flax breaking festival, just like the old days.
Emmental Swiss Wrestling Festival
This traditional festival is held in the Emmental Region once a year (spring/summer). The Swiss national sport combines athleticism with folklore and tradition.
The Napf Marathon is held every fall in the heart of the Emmental. The 42.195 kilometer route leads you through the typical landscape of the Emmental Region.
Every fall, 38 km of cantonal roads near Huttwil/Sumiswald belong to sports enthusiasts who are driven along by their own muscle power.
