Tour de Berne - Voralpen

Bern–Konolfingen–Heimberg–Bern

Enlarged map

Photo gallery
This tour is characterized by two completely different segments. The outbound segment from Bern to Heimberg passes through undulating terrain. A good part of the return segment runs along the Aare and is flat and comfortable.
Starting at the main station in Bern, the tour passes straight through Bern's «museum mile». The Historical, Alpine and Natural History Museums are all worth a visit. The tour continues along side streets toward Heimberg. The Prealps panorama before Konolfingen is breathtaking. Stop for a moment, take a deep breath and enjoy the scenery. A magnificent 17th century castle can be seen further along the route, in Oberdiessbach. It's considered one of Switzerland's most beautiful castles dating from that period.

From Heimberg, a good part of the route follows along the Aare. Near Münsingen, the route passes the grounds of a psychiatric clinic built on the castle estate in 1895. Though it's not an attraction in the conventional sense, the clinic grounds paint a rather idyllic picture. Part of the return segment to Bern – the part shortly before Gümligen – covers the same route as the outbound segment.
