best season

Marked, sunny snowshoe tour high up in the Diemtigtal. The circular hike takes you through snow-covered alpine areas and mountain forests and offers impressive views.

The starting point for the five-kilometre snowshoe tour is the Gsässweid car park (Springenboden) high up in the Diemtigtal Nature Park. The trail is marked - but you make your own tracks with your snowshoes. The ascent to Ottenschwand and Neuenstift is rewarded with an impressive panorama of the rear Diemtigtal and Simmental valleys. From the highest point, the descent takes you across snow-covered alpine meadows past lonely alpine huts and striking sycamores. Will you also discover a giant snow sculpture?
