best season

The hike connects the Diemtigtal Nature Park with the municipality of St. Stephan and offers you beautiful panoramic views over the Diemtigtal and the upper Simmental on the Grimmifurggi.

Your pass hike starts at the very back of the Diemtigal Nature Park and with it the ascent to "Grimmifurggi", where the two municipalities of Diemtigen and St. Stephan meet. This ascent is cause for celebration, because in the "Grimmi" area something not quite ordinary awaits you: the ferruginous source of the Grimmi water stands out amidst alpine meadows and fascinates with its red colour.

On the «Grimmifurggi» you have a panoramic view of the rear Diemtigtal and the upper Simmental and feel surrounded by a multitude of impressive mountain peaks. Directly below you stretches the lonely «Färmeltal» with its wild barrenness - perhaps a suitable destination for your next hike?

Do you want to cover even more metres in altitude? From Grimmifurggi, the Rauflihore/Bluttlighore (2323 m a.s.l.) can be reached via a grassy ridge in 1 hour 15 minutes (there and back), before you tackle the descent across countless alpine meadows to the Matten railway station (St. Stephan).
