Typical Swiss Landscapes

The Swiss miniaturesheet shows a view from the Lueg (Heiligenlandhubel) in the municipality of Affoltern im Emmental.

The Lueg is a 887 metres high hill along the road between the villages Wynigen and Affoltern. The hill offers a magnificent view towards the Bernese Alps. On its top there is the Lueg monument, which was erected (1921) in memory of the 54 Bernese cavalrymen who were victims of the flu epidemy of 1918. A full panoramic view from the Lueg you can see here.
