Winter walking in Diemtigtal

Walk along snow-covered paths and leave the cares of everyday life behind.

A hike through the snow-covered Diemtigtal gives you the feeling of having landed in a winter wonderland. There are over 30 kilometres of winter hiking trails to discover and a slower pace of life to enjoy.

Travel comfortably by train to Oey-Diemtigen train station. You can reach the starting points in the valley easily by train and post bus.

A slower pace is the order of the day at Diemtigtal Nature Park. From a half-hour stroll at the very bottom of the valley to a three-hour hike on the sunny terrace high above the valley floor, there is something for everyone.

BLS suggestion

The winter hiking trails high up on Springenboden are where you'll find the most beautiful views in the Diemtigtal Nature Park. With the three variants of the winter hiking trail, you can choose your hike to suit your preferences: The shortcut options via Ahorni or Neuenstift are ideal for shorter walks with little difference in altitude. The trail via Alp Ottenschwand is pretty challenging, but the ascent to 1500 metres above sea level is rewarded with an impressive view of the rear Diemtigtal valley and the Simmental valley. After walking for three hours, enjoy a cosy end to a beautiful winter's day in one of Springenboden's two restaurants.
