Have you ever stood next to a winning muni? Do you know what a «Wyberhaagge» is? In the home of the Swiss wrestling king Kilian Wenger, you can learn exciting facts about Swiss wrestling festivals (explanations in German only).

On the way to Kilian Wenger's home country, you will learn more about the popular national sport that has managed to preserve its rustic origins. Swiss wrestling is good for you, makes you strong and resilient. Swiss wrestling is camaraderie and down-to-earthness. The people of Diemtigtal have known this for a long time, which is why it has been part of their active culture for generations. In addition, the three Swiss wrestling kings from the Diemtigtal naturally make us very proud – do you know them?

Themed panels along the path (explanations in German only) give you an insight into the world of Swiss wrestling and you learn about the different techniques and holds. Why are there Alpine and gymnastic wrestlers and what is the difference between them? You will reach the highlight of the trail at the end of your circular walk. In the pavilion of the Swiss wrestling kings you will find portraits of the «bad guys» and can admire the lifelike wooden muni «Arnold» and our Swiss wrestling king himself in life-size.
