Naturpark Diemtigtal - The Three Parks Hike, Stage 2 from Grimmialp to Oey

On the second day, the trail takes you through the Diemigtal Nature Park, along streams, through flowering meadows and sheltered forests. Along the way you can admire the beautifully decorated Simmental houses: they bear witness to a bygone era and have many stories to tell. Read the «Zeitzeugen uralter Tradition» (in German) or the « Témoins d'une tradition séculaire » (in French) for more information.
