Oberaargau

Nestled between the Jura and the Napf, just a 35-minute drive from the city of Bern, the Ober-aargau shows its best side. The region is characterized by old buildings and fascinating places steeped in legend.

Visitors can delve into the mysteries of the region while following in the footsteps of designers, lake dwellers and even camels.

The Oberaargau region is home to countless wonders of nature. The Mutzbachfall falls, the mysterious Smaragd Gebiet, the water meadows, the Hohwacht overlook and the bluish-green Burgäschisee lake are just some of the region’s highlights. And those with an insatiable thirst for history should plan a visit to the themed markets in Huttwil.

Yet the Oberaargau not only offers spectacular natural beauty; it also leads the way in the field of design. The Langenthal Design Tour takes visitors on a fascinating journey of discovery through five well-known design companies based in Langenthal. The city hosts the design exhibition “Designers’ Saturday” every two years. A large number of renowned national and international designers converge on Langenthal to present their latest creations.
