Diemtigtal House Trails

The three Diemtigtal House Trails are thematic paths focusing on traditional architecture.

Over 30 years ago, the municipality of Diemtigen was awarded the Louis Wakker Prize for its approach, in terms of planning and culture, to its traditional buildings. The three House Trails take visitors past scattered settlements and impressive houses.
