Diemtigtaler Forest Crib | 2. - 28.12.2023

Discovering the Christmas Story in Winter

Short facts

  • Oey

The Diemtigtaler forest crib lets you experience the Christmas story with large wooden figures near the «Katzenloch» fireplace. A sensual experience for young and old.

In the hectic pre-Christmas period, the forest cot offers you a place to find peace and quiet and lets you become aware of the significance of the Advent season. The walk from Oey market square to the forest crèche takes about 15 minutes.

The forest cot is at its most beautiful when it gets dark. Our tip, so that you can reach it easily: take a headlamp, torch or lantern with you. The path to the forest cot is not illuminated; there is no winter service on the path.

Project idea
The Diemtigtaler Waldkrippe is a project of the Friends of the Diemtigtal Regional Nature Park Association and was created with the cooperation of the association members and the Diemtigtal School, Oey site.

Path conditions
Due to the change of warm and cold temperatures, the path along the valley hiking trail is slippery in some places. Remember to wear good shoes.
As an alternative, the crib can also be reached in five minutes on foot from the Katzenloch Bridge.

The lighting of the Forest Crib will be switched on on Saturday, 2 Devember. All interested parties are welcome to attend the opening. We will meet at 4.30 pm directly at the forest crib.
