Parish before the merger on January 1, 1887

Brechershäusern is a village in the municipality of Wynigen in the Emmental administrative district in the canton of Bern in Switzerland . On 1 January 1887, the former rural community became a municipality Wynigen merged .


Until the political and ecclesiastical incorporation in Wynigen in 1887, Brechershäusern belonged with the neighboring farms Rain, Buchgasse and Heuweg to the distant parish of Koppigen and, as an enclave in the parish of Wynigen , formed a political parish with 118 inhabitants (1880). In the late Middle Ages, the Brechershäusern (Brecholshúsern) court, mentioned in 1312, was outside the Kyburg district of Gutisberg, unlike Wynigen. Its owners, resident on the farm or Burgdorf burgers , awarded goods to the Fraubrunnen monastery in 1312 . From the late 15th century, the Jost farmers were in crushing houses. The Gotthelf films (Glunggehof) made Brechershäuser famous throughout Switzerland.
