There are regions, where everything is just perfect: the landscape, the villages, the individual houses, the gardens. This is what you will enjoy when you go on the hiking trip from Oberwil to Erlenbach in Simmental valley. The hiking trail leads past magnificent farmhouses that are artistic masterpieces of carpentry.
Seemingly secluded from the rest of the world, this lowermost but typical side valley of the Simmental is a cosmopolitan and welcoming place. The Diemtigtal valley is a 16km-long oasis of wilderness and pristine beauty.
The Diemtigtal valley is celebrated for its magnificent rural dwellings, and you can see some of the finest along the marked Diemtigtal House Trail. The details are particularly impressive: intricate carving, delicate paintings and elaborate compositions of form and colour that adorn the wooden façades underneath the massive roofs.
