A little paradise

Oberwil im Simmental
Das kleine Paradies in der Mitte des Simmentals

The town lies up and off the main road, floating just above the river valley below. Magnificently painted Simmental farmhouses and the church’s breathtaking facade are well worth the trip!

The landscape is natural and unchanged, inviting wanderers as well as those who simply want to slow down and stay awhile. Visit the local Schnurreloch caves for a glimpse at an earlier era of mankind, as hunter-gatherers first moved into this alpine region. The accessible caves are witness to these fantastic beginnings. Oberwil is the starting point for alpine treks over Morgeten and into the Gantrisch area.

Nearby the family ski area of Rossberg is a perfect magnet for downhill skiers who simply want to pass the day outside in a beautiful spot and for novice cross-country skiers out to enjoy the day.
