The most beautiful homesteads are located at the entrance to the valley, around Diemtigen, and bear witness to an age when livestock farming brought great wealth. The houses are often widely scattered, a tradition that continues to this day – and which won the municipality of Diemtigen the Wakker Prize for architectural conservation in 1986. Visit in summer, when residents adorn their homes with window boxes, and their famously ornate gardens reveal all their flower-filled glory.
Besides the way through the anterior valley (Oey-Diemtigen-Oey) two additional theme paths lead through the central (Horboden - Rothbad - Horboden) and posterior (Zwischenflüh - Schwenden - Tiermatti) valley.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
