Grimmialp

Grimmialp lies above the village of Schwenden at the far end of the rural Diemtigtal. It is a popular family winter sports region. Children love the «Grimmimutz» circuit theme path.
The Diemtigtal is the largest branch valley of the Simmental. This 130 square kilometres in area, 16km long valley is an idyllic branch valley offering a wide range of options for sustainable tourism, especially for families and those looking for relaxation and a quiet break. Grimmialp is accessible by post bus from the railway station at the Simmental village of Oey-Diemtigen.

The restorative properties of the Grimmibrunnen’s iron-enriched waters attracted visitors from near and far in the 18th century. Because of the spring’s high altitude, its waters weren’t made readily available until the Kurhaus opened in 1899. Various circumstances led to the decline of spa bathing.

SUMMER

The forked valley offers a wide range of activities for sustainable tourism, especially for families and those seeking relaxation and tranquillity. There are 200km of sign-posted trails for hikers. The Grimmialp with its child-friendly circuit theme path «Grimmimutz» is particularly popular with families. The trail tells the tale of a friendly mythical forest dweller who loves nothing more than peace and nature.The «Diemtigtaler Hausweg» is a trail past the valley’s historic and valuable farmhouses. One of the trail’s sections has its starting point at Schwenden near Grimmialp.

WINTER

The Grimmialp winter-sports region focuses on families. There is a modern chairlift, a smaller ski lift and a children’s lift. Snow fun of a rather different kind can be had at the 250 metre long snow-tubing run that is accessed by a lift from the valley terminus at Grimmialp. There are sledge runs, a children’s snow playground called «Schlaraffenland» (Land of Plenty), a puzzle winter hiking trail, a natural ice rink and a cross-country run from Grimmialp via Schwenden to Zwischenflüh. The ski tour to the Rauflihorn is the best-known of many tours in the area.

Highlights
