Cows graze in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Entlebuch, Switzerland
Are you looking to experience natural Switzerland? These are my favorite tips and locations for first-time visitors to Entlebuch, Switzerland.
The first place I take a visitor to Entlebuch is to the UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Here you may get on a mountain bike or go hiking and head out into nature.
For more natural beauty, Schrattenfluh is a picturesque mountain near Sorenberg.
When you travel to Entlebuch, take your picture at Heiligkreuz. Photo opportunities in Entlebuch are anywhere along the Entlebuch UNESCO biosphere trail. I took my picture in the hills with the wild flowers blooming and felt like I was having a Julie Andrews “the hills are alive with the sound of music” moment, but in Switzerland.
Swiss food in Entlebuch
If you want to bring home a little bit of Entlebuch, pick up a jar of the local honey and a tin of tea. You’ll find a lot of regional products at Wirz Getranke.
The locals will tell you that the best item on the menu at Restaurant Bahnhofi is the Cordon Bleu. The Hotel Port in Entlebuch is the spot for late night dining.
For an affordable “value” meal, Restaurant Bahnhof in Schupfheim is a good bet. Here you get big plates of food for less money.
For a huge splurge, I go to the sorcerer of Entlebuch. Stefan Wiesner and his crew in the Gasthaus Rossli in Escholzmatt are famous for their very special dishes.
