Diemtigtal House Trails

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

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.

Availability Today (Friday) open

Can be followed every day from spring to autumn.

Subject to change without prior notice


Visitors can follow the Diemtigtal House Trails free of charge.


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 – covering the anterior, central and posterior valleys respectively – are all full-day walks. They can easily be subdivided into half-day walks, however.

Oey–Feld–Hasli–Sälbeze–Bächlen–Grund–Diemtigen Dorf–Bergli–Diemtigen Dorf–Oey
Walking time: 3 hours
Distance: 6.3 km

Route 2: “Mittleres Tal” (central valley)

Walking time: 4 hours

Route 3: “Hinteres Tal” (posterior valley)

Walking time: 4 hour 20 minutes
Distance: 10.1 km

  • For the majority of the way, the trails follow existing footpaths and are marked with brown signs. In each case, the starting 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.
  • In 1986, the Swiss Heritage Society (SHS) awarded the municipality of Diemtigen the Wakker Prize for its architecture and scattered settlements.
