In Habkern, let the power of unspoilt nature and calm take effect. The picturesque village has around 650 inhabitants who cultivate the traditional art of mountain farming. Stay awhile at the village well and enjoy the fresh alpine air or engage in a short conversation with the locals. Visit the Alp Heubühlen and have a taste of alpine life. In the summer, the very best Swiss cheese is made; bulls, cows and calves as well as pigs live in the pastures. Treat yourself to a delicious dairyman’s breakfast here.
The small chalet next to the picturesque church houses the village museum. Find out about the history of the village, as well as the geology and the caves in the Habkerntal valley. A visit to the Bernatone alphorn workshop run by the family Tschiemer will teach you even more about the traditions and customs of the region. Did you know that there is such a thing as Habkern granite? The Habkern-granite rock, somewhat overgrown with bushes and moss, is on the Luegiboden. You can look into the distance from here. The granite rock is said to have special powers.
