The best known biscuit maker in Switzerland, Kambly was founded in 1910. The first Kambly bakery is recreated as part of the Kambly Experience at Trubschachen, not far from Bern and Lucerne. At the Kambly Experience, visitors learn all about fine biscuit making and have the opportunity to try more than 100 types of biscuits, including the Bretzeli, a fine, crepe-like biscuit that is one of the most popular of Kambly’s biscuits. For children over age six, a “make your own biscuit” class is available on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
Another way to enjoy the Kambly Experience is through the Kambly e-bike tour. The 30-kilometer tour begins and ends in the town of Langnau, stopping at 14 stations along the way, including a local museum, pottery works, a mill, a dairy and the Kambly Experence. A smartphone app is available to lead the way.
The Kambly Experience is located near the town of Trubschachen in the Emmental Valley, about 35 minutes from Bern by car and 45 minutes from Lucerne. Trains run to Trubschachen from Lucerne hourly and the Kambly Experience is a short walk from the train station. Kambly also runs its own train Tuesday to Sunday, leaving Bern at 8:36 a.m., 12:36 p.m. and 4:36 p.m. and leaving Lucerne at 10:57 a.m. and 2:57 p.m. For those staying in Zurich, a stop at Kambly is often included in day tours to Bern and the surrounding area.
