Naturpark Diemtigtal - The history and culture trail shows sections of the way of life in the Diemtigtal, back to the Middle Stone Age. At eight posts (in German) you will learn interesting facts about the region.

At eight posts you will learn (in German) interesting facts about alpine farming, cattle, horse and goat breeding, trade and industry, art and culture, timber construction, tourism, important buildings and ways of life. The time period goes back to the Middle Stone Age.

The trail shows how, around 10,000 years ago, prehistoric people in search of food advanced into the still glaciated Diemtigtal and found shelter under the Eyeriedschopf in Zwischenflüh. Various excavations, such as stone and bone implements, provide evidence of human presence in the Diemtigtal in the Middle Stone Age.

The one-kilometre trail leads from the Brätlistelle Anger (post bus stop) to the Eyeriedschopf, 80 metres higher up. The hike can be extended: either up to the Seebergsee lake (variant I) or as a circular route along the Narenbach stream and valley hiking trail back to the starting point at Anger (variant II).
