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.

In view of the length of the Diemigtal Valley, the entire route is divided into three separate trails. The “Vorderes Tal”, “Mittleres Tal” and “Hinteres Tal” circular trails take 3 to 3.5 hours each.

Route 1: “Vorderes Tal” (anterior valley)

Oey–Feld–Hasli–Sälbeze–Bächlen–Grund–Diemtigen Dorf–Bergli–Diemtigen Dorf–Oey

Route 3: “Hinteres Tal” (posterior valley)

  • For the majority of the way, the trails follow existing footpaths and are marked with brown signs. In each case, the starting and ending point is a postbus stop.
  • The individual houses are labelled with brown signs. These show the same numbers as described in the “Diemigtaler-Hausweg” (Diemigtal House Trail) flyer and in the "Diemtigtal Nature Park" app.
  • In 1986, the Swiss Heritage Society (SHS) awarded the municipality of Diemtigen the Wakker Prize for its architecture and scattered settlements.
