The grain chamber offers a splendid transition from the wonderful views of Schüpfen, to the wide plains and the small historical town of Büren.
This hike begins at the station in the rural village of Schüpfen. Passing by wide fields, you reach the beautiful village of Grossaffoltern and the fine buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. The ever changing view of the blue shape of the Jura is simply fascinating, and looking in the other direction, the eye is caught by the beautiful panoramic vista of the Alps.
Good to know
- This hike is regarded as easy, but it is important to wear good walking shoes.
- Büren an der Aare is one of the most delightful country towns in the canton, situated at the traffic bottleneck between Städtiberg and the Aare river. The town was once a resting place for trading caravans and pilgrims, but
- also a reloading point for shipping on the Aare.
- The main sights in the town center include the castle of the former Bernese landvogt, the town hall with its gothic windows, the town church, and the mighty wooden bridge.
