Lueg Monument - Affoltern

Emmental Cheese Route - Lueg Monument
Point of interest

With a height of 890 meters, the "Lueg" hill offers you a magnificent view of the Bernese Alps.

Cheese was originally produced on the mountainside pastures and was not produced in the valley until the late 18th century. The success of exported Emmental cheese brought prosperity to dairy farmers, as you can tell even today from their impressively large houses.

The Lueg Monument at the top of the hill was erected in memory of the 54 Bern cavalrymen who fell victim to the flu epidemic of 1918.

And the orientation table depicting the Alps was produced in the 1920s by Henzi, a clergyman from Hasle.
