Quaint villages, idyllic lakes, and historic buildings – the Oberaargau region is worth getting to know. It offers all kinds of fun adventures and pretty destinations.

Only about 35 minutes by car from Bern lies the Oberaargau, which stretches all the way from the Napfbergland to the Jura. The lush green forests and rolling hills are characteristic for the diverse region. In addition to its beautiful landscapes, it has historic towns such as Wiedlisbach or Langenthal – which has been populated since 4,000 BC – that are definitely worth a visit.

There’s a lot to do and discover in the Oberaargau, especially in the warmer months: adventure trails, cozy spots by the lake, and beautiful views will make your heart skip a beat and inspire old and young to explore and discover. If you prefer a more active experience, the best way to see the most beautiful spots in the region is on two wheels – for example by e-bike or scooter. 


A baroque country estate brimming with history and stories, a moor lake with idyllic swimming spots and an award-winning restaurant, a hike along the Mutzbach stream to a beautiful waterfall, or a journey to the land of wool in Huttwil – the region has all kinds of activities and experiences to offer.
