A lot of Anabaptists from the Emmental ended up in and near the Jura during their persecution.
Surely not for this trip, but some places close to Attiswil are nice.
I often visit the 3 Lakes Region, staying in Ligerz and Sugiez. Buren an der Aare has a small and attractive old town center. The Weissenstein is worth going up. Brugg, a bit further north, has a nice small museum and the remains of a major Roman legion's camp....Vindonissa, now Windisch.
The Emmental is not far, and has its own special variation of Swiss culture.
Not to rub it in, bit all of those lower altitude places are nice in May. ;-)
