Gotthelf Center Lützelflüh

This is where Jeremias Gotthelf wrote his timeless tales.

‘Uli der Knecht’ (Uli the Farm Servant), ‘Uli der Pächter’ (Uli the Tenant Farmer), ‘Die Käserei in der Vehfreude’ (The Dairy in the Vehfreude): to those unfamiliar with these titles, they are Jeremias Gotthelf’s great novels and stories. They were born here in the Lützelflüh rectory.

Feel his spirit reigning over the rectory, experience the extent of his mighty literary work, discover new sides to Gotthelf: meet the original!

Take a coffee break in the Bistro Bitzius and spend a moment philosophizing about life, God and Gotthelf: this great Emmental author’s work is as current today as when it was written!
