    Public transport

    Starting point and end of the route are at the train stations, where there is public parking.

  • Tipp

    The hiking trail is marked on the yellow signposts by a green logo with the words “Emme Uferweg” and the respective route number – number 446 in this case. If the barrier-free trail deviates from the usual route, it is signalled with a white signpost. Nonetheless, we recommend bringing a printout of the route just to be sure.

Follow the beautiful river Emme from Burgdorf to Hasle-Rüegsau. You will see some rough landscapes with massive rocks and gurgling water along the way. The Emme is shallow in some parts, flowing lightly over rocks and pebbles, in other places it is so deep that the water sparkles emerald green in the sun. Rest areas along the way invite you to linger and enjoy your serene green surroundings. But they are not the only sight to see; you’ll also have a wonderful view of Burgdorf Castle. Once you’re out of the forest, the trail continues along pretty fields used for farming to the end of the tour in Hasle-Rüegsau.
