best season

With a bit of luck, you will observe a colony of ibex through a telescope on this tour. There is reason to be happy: your ascent is rewarded with a great view of the Diemtigtal.

The marked snowshoe tour at the end of the valley of the Diemtigtal Nature Park leads you through the home of the "Waldmandli Grimmimutz" to the wildlife observation station. Here you will learn exciting facts about our wild animals and, with a bit of luck, discover the ibex colony with the telescope. It is almost obligatory to stop and enjoy the view down into the valley at Nidegg - do you know the surrounding peaks of the Diemtigtal?

If you want, you can tackle the ascent from Nidegg to the top station of the Grimmialp chairlift (1 km). Here, however, the trail is not marked and caution is advised when crossing pistes.
