An e-bike tour alongside magnificent Diemtigtal house facades. Discover and admire the beauty of traditional chalet architecture.
The Diemtigtal valley beckons with an intact and charming landscape and a traditional settlement structure featuring a wealth of carefully preserved and vibrant architecture. Thanks to its scenic beauty and well-maintained building heritage, an abundance of natural assets and extensive biodiversity, the Diemtigtal valley carries the 'Regional Nature Park – Landscape of National Distinction' label. Magnificent wooden chalets from the 18th and 19th centuries characterize the Diemtigtal valley.
This traditional construction method is still used today. The municipality of Diemtigen has succeeded in preserving the settlement character of the valley in an exemplary manner. Discover the most impressive farmhouses by e-bike along the Diemtigtal House Trails (theme trails with well-preserved traditional architecture). Look forward to a unique cultural experience.
A short detour on the Grimmialp to the Blauseeli is worthwhile: the small lake with an underground tributary has a calming and soothing effect and invites you to take a short break.
Back on the valley road in the direction of Oey, after a good kilometre after the former Tiermatti inn, you turn off onto a side road that takes you to the former farms of Entschwil, Horboden and Bächlen. The last easy descent takes you back to Oey-Diemtigen railway station.
