This is a unique round walk through the moorland scenery of the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch. You'll love the barren raised bogs, flora-rich flat moors and primal moorland landscapes! Moors as far as the eye can see!
Discover the varied moorland scenery of the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch. The long-distance footpath with its five legs comprises 80 kilometres of springy moorland terrain, stony mountain paths, ancient pass routes and unmade alp and forestry roads through barren high moors and flora-rich flat moors. All the legs are waymarked "Moorlandschaftspfad" (moorland path) to keep you on the right track! Moreover, all the start and end points can be reached by public transport, so the legs can be planned as individual single-day outings.
The moors are particularly striking in terms of colour between late September and late October.
