The Diemtigtal includes the largest alpine cheese-making area in Switzerland. The tasty mountain cheese is very much in demand. Many farms give visitors the chance to observe the cheese-making, for example the organic alpine dairy on the Schwarzenberg Alp in the Wiriehorn area. Here you can watch the cheese being made while you enjoy a "typical Swiss" brunch.
High above the Diemtigtal, at the end of a little side valley and on the way over to the Simmental, is the picturesque Seeberg Lake (1831 m). This nature conservation area attracts both walkers and bikers. A typical mountain lake with cold, clear water, a very popular place for a day out. There are mysterious underground streams flowing in and out of the lake. The nearby mountain hut is manned in summer.
