HEKU Velo Museum

Passion on two wheels

Behind the unassuming door of a supposedly ordinary air raid shelter hides the small, but fine Velo (Bike) Museum. The bikes exhibited transport visitors into the days of yesteryear and give insight into the world of two-wheelers.

Heku stands for Heinz Kunz – the bike legend from Boltigen. Until recently, this Oberlander would greet his guests and personally take them on a tour through the history of the bicycle. His dream, however, lives on and there is no way his collection would ever not be shared with the public. Here, you can see, among other things, a dandy horse, a penny-farthing, old military, postal and baker bikes, children's bikes, over 200 brand labels and numerous bicycle bells.

It does not matter if you are with your family, in a group or even have a passion for bikes – this unique museum is definitely worth a visit. There is no good reason to not combine it with a bike tour through Simmental!


With the train through Bern and Thun to Boltigen, then take the bus to Reidenbach BE. The museum lies across from the bus stop.
