The history and culture trail shows you selected excerpts from the life forms and eras of the Diemtigtal, back to the Middle Stone Age (information panels in German only).

At eight posts you can read interesting facts about the following topics (descriptions in German only):

  • Alpine farming
  • Cattle, horse and goat breeding
  • Trade and industry
  • Art and culture
  • Timber construction
  • Tourism
  • Important buildings
  • Life forms

You will learn how, around 10,000 years ago, prehistoric people in search of food penetrated the still glaciated Diemtigtal and found shelter under the Eyeriedschopf in Zwischenflüh. Excavations of stone and bone implements attest to the human presence in the Diemtigtal in the Middle Stone Age – an important hook for the Diemtigtal History and Culture Trail.

There is a large covered barbecue area at the starting point. Reserve it as a group at the Diemtigtal Nature Park office.


Best season

depending on the weather


Follow the history and culture trail from the Anger cattle showground along the edge of the forest up towards Eyeried. Up to here the trail leads along an asphalt road. Turn left to Eyeriedschopf and continue along the narrow hiking trail. The descent follows the same route. The path is marked with white direction markers and a green route field.


Sturdy shoes

At the starting point you will find a great covered barbecue area. Don't forget your Cervelat sausage, knife and drinks!
