Diemtigtaler Forest Crib | 26.11.-28.12.2022

Discovering the Christmas Story in Winter

Short facts

  • Oey

The Diemtigtaler forest crib lets you experience the Christmas story anew with large wooden figures at the «Katzenloch» fireplace. A sensual experience for young and old. The nativity scene with all the figures will now be set up at the fireplace; there will no longer be any stations along the valley hiking trail (Talwanderweg).

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 to the forest cot takes about 15 minutes - for the whole walk from the market place in Oey with a stop at the cot, you should reckon with a good half hour.

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.


26 November to 28 December 2022


The Diemtigtaler Waldkrippe is an idea of the board 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 condition

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.
