«There exist several valley hiking trails. However, the Diemtigtaler Talwanderweg [Diemtigtal valley hiking trail] from Schwenden to Oey is unique and deserves the highest commendation.» Translated quote from Wanderführer der Berner Wanderwege (hiking guidebook of Bernese hiking trails, available in German only).
The trail follows the valley streams Fildrich and Chirel and leads you through forests and meadows. It leads alternately alongside flower-filled meadows and through cool, shady forest – most pleasant on hot summer days. Enjoy the sound of rushing torrents as you cross the rivers’ eleven bridges. Rest on one of the numerous benches and cook lunch on one of the barbecue sites along the way.
On this hike, you’re away from the road, but along the 15 km hike you will still find eleven PostBus stops. This means there’s one every 20-40 minutes. There are shortcuts, please check the time schedule of the PostBus.
