Naturpark Diemtigtal - 30 years ago, the municipality of Diemtigen was awarded the Henri-Louis-Wakker prize for its building culture and planning. The three house trails lead past scattered settlements and magnificent houses.

The Diemtigtal house trail is a theme trail about the traditonal architecture. The magtnificent Simmental houses - each with its own story - from the 18th and 19th century, shape the landscape of the Diemtigtal. The traditional construction technique is still used to build new houses.

The Diemtigtal house trail is divided into three parts. Each path "anterior valley", "central valley" and "rear valley" takes you about 3 hours. The paths are well-signed with brown signposts. The departure points are bus stops as well.

The whole route suits as a discovery tour with your e-bike, as the trail passes mainly side roads.
