We are surrounded by birds almost everywhere, but often only notice their cheerful chirping. Did you know that some birds travel 800 km a day in search of food?

The beautiful and varied cultural landscape of the Diemtigtal provides a home for many birds. The bird trail leads you through numerous habitats of native bird species. Observe the nursery of a pair of swifts live with a nest camera or test your knowledge of bird calls. Along the way, you can expect to learn many astonishing things about the bird world (explanations in German only).

The populations of many bird species are in sharp decline. The reason for this is often the lack of habitat, which we humans alter for our own purposes. A long-term goal in the Diemtigtal is therefore to provide rare species with a better basis for life again. With the help of the local population, landowners and the Sempach ornithological station, various projects are underway to promote our birdlife.
