The Grimmimutz Adventure Trail on the Grimmialp, at the very back of the Diemtigtal, is a true highlight for families.

Lower Simmental: themed trail

A circular walking trail with many playing posts has arisen from the children's story by Peter Zahnd about the adventures of Grimmimutz, the forest dweller, and the wicked pepper witch. Artistic wooden signposts bearing the inscription "Grimmimutz" mark the entire circular route on which boredom never becomes an issue: children read the story of Grimmimutz and discover the beauty of nature in entertaining and fun ways. Walking almost happens by itself when curiosity has been aroused: maybe you'll be able to recognise the wisps of Grimmimutz's grey hair behind the next mass of twisted and gnarled exposed roots? And if hunger strikes the walking party, barbecue places en route invite you to grill a cervelat sausage or two at your leisure. The walking time from the starting point at Senggiweid, without stopping at playing posts, is about 1.5 hours. Depending on how much time you want to assign to playing, you can even spend the entire day on the trail. If your little adventurers become tired, you can break off the walk at any point and return to the starting point by going back along the Senggibach.

Please note: The information panels along the themed trail are in German. However, the adventure posts can still be used if you are not proficient in German.
