best season

The winter hiking trail leads you through forests and pastures covered deep in snow, high above the valley floor of the Diemtigtal Nature Park and offers you impressive views.

With the three variants of the winter hiking trail on Springenboden, you can shape your hike as you wish: The shortcut options via Ahorni or Neuenstift are ideal for shorter walks with little difference in altitude. The path via Alp Ottenschwand is rather demanding, but the ascent to 1500 m above sea level is rewarded with an impressive view of the rear Diemtigtal and the Simmental. Do you fancy something warm or would you like to enjoy the last rays of sunshine on a terrace? Back at the starting point, the restaurants are ideal for this.

Shortcut A "Ahorni": 3 km, 1 hour.
Shortcut B "Neuenstift": 5 km, 1.5 hrs.
