Naturpark Diemtigtal - A signposted snow-shoe trail (circular hiking trail) at the end of the Diemtigtal Nature Park valley. There is a wildlife watching shelter with information about wildlife and a telescope to watch the ibex colonies.

The signposted circular snow-shoe trail leads from the Senggiweid car park in the «Grimmimutz» area. After the alpine cabin Nidegg the route continues along the «wildlife hike» through the Nidegg forest until the observation platform. There you'll find a telescope to watch the ibex colonies, as well as information about wildlife.

After some hundert meters it's possible to ascend up to the mountain station Stierenberg (1740 MASL; not signposted; please pay attention by crossing the slopes). The descend leads over the snowy mountain pastures of Nidegg back to the starting point. Don't forget to enjoy the fantastic views!
