The ViaJacobi forms part of the Camino de Santiago which crosses Europe and leads from Lake Constance to Geneva, passing right through Switzerland in 33 stages.
From Huttwil, the twenty-eighth stage of the ViaJacobi leads to Chaltenegg and Dürrenroth. After Häusernmoos, the route ascends to the Lueg and then to Burgdorf via Kaltacker. Various key points of national importance to Switzerland are found along the twenty-eighth stage of the ViaJacobi. These include the Leuenhohle sunken path, cut several meters deep into the sandstone at certain points. The former leprosy sanctuary together with its chapel are a unique sight.
