Diemtigtal House Trail

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.

Obers Heiti

From the Simmen Valley to Obere Heiti opening up to fantastic views of Lake Thun

The Simmefluh on the left-hand side and the Burgfluh on the right characterize the entrance to the Semmen Valley impressively. It is understood that both these rock massifs offer views of the highest order.
The mountain bike tour to Oberen Heiti does not entirely conquer both these mountains, but even their foothills have much to offer as regards vantage points and views. Below you will espy the deep blue Lake Thun. Mt. Niesen is so close you can almost touch it. And in the distance the unmistakable silhouette of Eiger, Mönch und Jungfrau is visible.

In 2005, the Chirel und Fildrich rivers raged with abandon. But the wounds of the flooding have healed over, and the valley now presents every facet of its natural beauty for all to admire.
