It is not merely by accident that Schwarzbubenland is known as the jewel in the crown of north-west Switzerland. A great way to explore the rolling hills, gorges and valleys is by foot or by mountain bike. 

The landscape is also packed with countless ancient castles and monasteries. Gilgenberg Castle in Zullwil, Thierstein Castle in Büsserach or the ruins of Landskron Castle im Leimental are just three of the thirty castles in the region.
