Niesen–Diemtigtal panoramic walk
A hike with fantastic wide views and an optional overnight stay on Springenboden
Even the journey to the starting point, the summit of Mount Niesen, is spectacular. The stunning distant views will be your constant companion during the four-and-a-half-hour walk down into the Diemtigtal Nature Park. Along the way, the Hoschüpfen viewing platform offers breathtaking views over mountain peaks, Lake Thun and the distant valleys of the Simmental and Diemtigtal. If you wish to extend the hike into a two-day trip, you can reserve a night’s stay on Springenboden and see the day draw to a close high above the Diemtigtal Valley.
Incidentally, if you reserve the accommodation package at Gasthof Gsässweid from the office of the Diemtigtal Nature Park, you’ll be staying either in the dormitory or in a double room and, following breakfast the next day, will be taken back to the Oey-Diemtigen or Mülenen railway station.
