Our valley, your park.

The municipalities of Diemtigen (130 km2) and Zweisimmen (5.4 km2 with the natural wonder of the Seeberg lake) form the perimeter of the Diemtigtal Nature Park. Its natural gate at the entrance of the valley, together with the distinctive end of the valley and the characteristic pre-alpine landscape between 650 and 2'652m, make Diemtigtal the epitome of what the visitor would expect from a nature park.

Alpine and Mountain Agriculture

Diemtigtal is the most significant alpine farming community in Switzerland. Around 140 alpine farms put about 10,000 cows, cattle, sheep and goats out onto the summer pastures. Alpine cheese is produced in more than 60 alpine farms, and is mostly AOC certified. Alpine farming is a lively and traditional cultural and economic way of life and in Diemtigtal it is held in high esteem. Many years of extensive and sustainable agriculture have resulted in a wide biodiversity and a broad and continuous cultural landscape..

Tradition and living culture

With its intact and charming landscape, its traditional structure of scattered settlements, together with the pretty houses and groups of buildings Diemtigtal offers a wealth of carefully preserved and living architecture. In recognition of its responsible construction planning and vibrant building culture, the Swiss Cultural Heritage Protection awarded the municipality of Diemtigtal the Henri-Louis-Wakker prize. Even today, traditions are actively kept alive and experienced.
