Diemtigtal Valley Hiking Trail
A walk along the Fildrich and Chirel rivers
On the Valley Hiking Trail, you’ll cross eleven bridges over the Fildrich and Chirel valley streams. Especially on hot summer days, it remains pleasantly cool in the shade of the trees here on the river bank. Along the way, five campfire spots are ideal locations for a communal barbecue.On the approximately 15 km-long walking route, you stay away from the road, but can reach eleven different Postbus stops that are about 20 to 40 minutes apart. This means that there are countless opportunities to cut the route short or complete alternative walks (taking account of the Postbus timetable).

Equipment and food & drink
Although the path provides good walking conditions and in some sections can even be used by walkers with pushchairs, we would recommend that you wear good footwear in view of the length of the route. You should also carry a rucksack with sufficient food and drink for your walk.
