  • How to get there

    Public transport

    We recommend taking public transport. Starting point and end of the route can be reached directly by train, get off at Langenthal or Brünig-Hasliberg station.


    Public parking is available at Langenthal and Brünig-Hasliberg stations. The number of spaces is limited, which is why we recommend travelling by public transport.

  • Fact

    The hiking trail is marked on the yellow signposts by a green logo with the words “Grenzpfad Napfbergland” and the respective route number – number 65 in this case. Nonetheless, we recommend bringing a printout of the route just to be sure.

On this mountain hike, breathtaking views, historic and cultural landmarks, and informative panels on the regions’ history await. The route takes hikers through the rolling hills of the Emmental valley and over the high mountain peaks of Napf, Wachthubel and Brienzer Rothorn. This hike is not suitable for beginners, as the route has six stages and takes five to six days to complete. There are also many activities along the way that can extend the hike as desired. Gold diggers can try their luck at the Napf, for example, and animal fans have the opportunity to go on a llama trek.
