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.
Two-hour walk through the habitat of the magnificent, blue Rosalia alpina beetle.
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.
