Slower on the road
This event is ideal for teams who want to leave the hectic everyday life behind for a few hours. With the covered wagon as a means of transport, thinking slows down and inner peace can return. During the ride you will listen to the story "The converted murderer's wagon" by Jeremias Gotthelf, told by the stableman Sami, who will also show you the original locations of the story.
Stops on the tour
Sami, your coachman and storyteller, picks you up at the post bus stop in Heggidorn and then takes you in a covered wagon via Allenlüften to Gümmenen. In Allenlüften you stop at the former Schwanen inn and learn exciting facts about this place and the former Schwanen innkeeper. Depending on your booking you can also have a snack here. Then the descent follows over the notoriously steep route to Gümmenen, with a visit to the village and its historic wooden bridge. All stations are scenes of the story of the Mordiofuhrmann, which Sami bring to life on the journey. As you will see, the moral of the story is still valid today.
For hunger on the road
Stop along the way and enjoy a simple but satisfying meal on a farm, consisting of a soup, a piece of bread and a glass of wine. You can also round off your journey home with a culinary treat and on the return journey to Illiswil (Wohlen bei Bern, post bus stop) enjoy a fine fondue or a cold plate on the covered wagon, for example.
