At the beginning of the trail, follow the cross-country ski trail to Tiermatti. It is worth taking a little time here to admire the artistically carved and colourfully painted façade of the former inn. From here the winter hiking trail continues via Seeboden to Geissboden. The next highlight is the idyllic Blauseeli on the Senggiweid. Deeply covered in snow, it is surrounded by fir trees. Even in winter it is a beautiful photo subject.
Take one last look at the striking peaks of the Spillgerten before the trail leads you back down the valley to the post bus stop «Grimmialp».
The winter hiking trail can be walked in both directions and is signposted. There are shortcuts at Tiermatti (post bus stop «Tiermatti») and at Geissboden (post bus stop «Fildrichbrücke»).
The winter hiking trail starts at the Anger in Zwischenflüh and leads along the cross-country ski trail via Weid to Tiermatti. The trail continues via Seeboden to Geissboden. Here you meet the trail of the Grimmialp circular hiking trail and follow the path up to the right via Buechi, over Seehorenweid to Blauseeli and further over Senggiweid to the post bus stop «Grimmialp».
Alternatively, in Geissboden you can also follow the path via Schwenden Chapel, Hotel Kurhaus Grimmialp via Egg to the post bus stop «Grimmialp» (a large part of this section runs along the road).
The winter hiking trail leads you partly along the cross-country skiing track. For a good coexistence, please do not enter the cross-country track and walk along the edge of the skating area.
Be prepared for possible dangerous spots along the winter hiking trail.
If you wish, you can make a short detour from Geissboden to the Schwenden Chapel and the Hotel Kurhaus Grimmialp. You can also get to the post bus stop "Grimmialp, Hotel Spillgerten" via our "Grimmialp circular hiking trail". Note, however, that you walk along the road at the end.
Motorway A6 Bern direction Zweisimmen, 1 km after the Simmenfluhtunnel turn left direction Diemtigtal. Follow the Diemtigtal road into the valley for 14 km in the direction of Schwenden until Viehschauplatz Anger.
Free parking is available directly at the starting point.
By train to Oey-Diemtigen. Then take the post bus to the "Zwischenflüh, Anger" stop. Hike in the direction of the stream (Fildrich) and the roundwood hut, shortly before the path starts on the left-hand side.
