Naturpark Diemtigtal - A small moorland region with moorland lakes, rare alpine flowers and the high iron-level springs of Grimmiwasser acts as a natural energy donor.

The Grimmiwasser place of power is a high-altitude alp (1840 m.a.s.l.) at the end of the Diemtigtal valley. Small moorland areas with moorland lakes, rare alpine flowers and the iron-rich springs of the Grimmiwasser act as natural energy dispensers. The red water from the iron springs - which was said to have healing properties - was piped to the then Grand Hotel Grimmialp at the end of the 19th century.

An impressive high plateau unfolds on Alp Grimmi (1740 m.a.s.l.). The simple mountain restaurant invites you to take a rest and offers an opportunity to admire the magnificent mountain panorama of the nearby Spillgerten and the expanse of the valley. The cheerful whistling of the marmots can be heard not infrequently. The mountain road winds in many bends through the shady mountain forest down into the valley.

Details

Discovery and capture of mineral water springs:
(The following texts are taken from the Grimmialp Health Spa Establishment "Kuretablissement Grimmialp")
"In earlier writings, you can read that the dairymen in Diemtigtal and their neighbours were already telling stories about the curative springs at the very back of Diemtigtal. They are located high up on Grimmialp, about 2000 metres above sea level, spring from the stony ground at the foot of an enormous rock face and are wonderfully clear.
About 600 and 900 m south-west of the Grimmi alpine hut and about 50 m above it, both mineral springs emerge and are characterised from afar by the light-red flowing of their watercourse.
