Trubschachen is a municipality in the administrative district of Emmental in the canton of Bern in Switzerland.HistoryTrubschachen is first mentioned in 1667 as Trueberschachen.The municipality grew out of a cluster of six farms along the banks of the Ilfis river during the Middle Ages. The parishes of Langnau im Emmental and Trub both claimed the farm houses. In 1666 they were divided, with three going to each parish. As the settlement grew and the situation in surrounding municipalities changed, the farms were too far from either municipality. In 1727 the farms began to exercise limited self-government, passing laws regarding the poor and citizenship. In 1737 a school opened in the community, which was known as Schachen at the time. This was followed by establishing a village police force in 1773 and collecting taxes in 1775-77. An einwohnergemeinde or citizen's community was founded in 1852, though it was called Innerer Lauperswilviertel until 1867. It became an independent parish in 1874 and the parish church was built in 1890-92. The political municipality was created in 1923 from parts of Trub and Langnau.Traditionally the residents of the area raised crops on the valley floor. In the 18th century they began weaving canvas and processing milk into cheese. The first cheese factory opened in 1827 and by 1900 there were five in the municipality. Today that number has shrunk to only two. In 1875, the Bern-Lucerne railroad connected Trubschachen to the growing Swiss rail network and brought industry into the municipality. In 1910 the Kambly Biscuit factory opened and became the largest employer. Other industries settled in the area as well. Today tourism is a small, but significant part of the local economy and since 1964 painting exhibitions draw many tourists to the municipality.
