Wim­mis Tourism

Wel­come to Wimmis! 

Our vil­lage is the ideal star­ting point for an expe­ri­ence holi­day in the ent­ire Ber­nese Ober­land – far from the hustle and bustle of the city but still cen­trally loca­ted. On the fol­lowing pages we take you on a tour of our char­ming and unspoilt vil­lage, and show you the wide range of pos­si­ble excur­si­ons at dif­fe­rent times of the year.

Tou­rist infor­ma­tion in the com­mu­nity centre 

You will find our tou­rist office in the Wim­mis com­mu­nity centre at Bahn­hofstrasse 7.

Vil­lage Life

Life in Wim­mis – appe­aling and close to nature 

Around 2500 resi­dents, restau­rants, busi­nes­ses, shop­ping faci­li­ties and an active range of clubs repre­sent the heart­beat of our vil­lage. Wim­mis has excel­lent trans­port links, which means that work­pla­ces in Thun, Bern or throughout the region can easily be reached with public trans­port or by car. Wim­mis its­elf is an ideal place in which to live and work. The iden­tity of our vil­lage has been shaped by its agri­cul­tu­ral past. Today a large num­ber of agri­cul­tu­ral and com­mer­cial enter­pri­ses are the main employers.

Sights and history 

Of Roman sett­le­ments and queens 

The castle and church are pro­mi­n­ently loca­ted in the middle of the vil­lage, at the foot of the Burg­fluh and visi­ble from afar. Built in the early Middle Ages, in the 12th cen­tury the fort­ress was con­ver­ted into a castle by the barons of Strätt­li­gen. For many cen­tu­ries the fort­ress and later the castle ser­ved as a check­point at the important and some­ti­mes fier­cely con­tes­ted mouth of the Sim­men­tal val­ley. Until the 5th cen­tury Wim­mis even had a town char­ter. The foun­da­ti­ons of the castle church date back to the time of Queen Berta, Queen of Bur­gundy (907–966) and of Lombardy.

In the Wim­mis His­to­ric Museum the history of the vil­lage through the mill­en­nia is told: from the cave dwel­lers of the Sim­men­fluh, the Roman sett­le­ment at the Pin­tel as well as life and death during the pla­gue. It also tells the story of early moun­tain tou­rism in Wim­mis, as our vil­lage was a popu­lar star­ting point for clim­bing the Niesen.

The ope­ning hours of the museum, addi­tio­nal infor­ma­tion about the exhi­bi­ti­ons and con­tact infor­ma­tion for indi­vi­dual gui­ded tours are avail­able hier.

Castle and church tours 2021 are can­ce­led because of COVID19 

From May to Octo­ber there are mon­thly gui­ded tours of one and a half hours’ dura­tion. Par­ti­ci­pants meet in the courty­ard of the castle, regis­tra­tion is not necessary. Howe­ver, the tours are not sui­ta­ble for people with phy­si­cal disa­bi­li­ties. The next gui­ded tours will take place on:

Gui­ded tours for groups are actually NOT avail­able on request. The basic fee is CHF 50 per guide and CHF 3 per per­son. Regis­tra­ti­ons are accep­ted by the castle guide:

Chirschmu­e­set (cherry puree) – a living tradition 

Since the 16th cen­tury cher­ries have been pureed in Wim­mis so that they can be stored. This tra­di­tion is pre­ser­ved and care­fully kept alive. The cher­ries are pain­sta­kin­gly che­cked, mas­hed in bar­rels and spread through linen sacks with spe­cial sticks. This sepa­ra­tes the juice, pulp and stones. The juice obtai­ned in this way is thi­c­ke­ned by boi­ling for hours in a cheese kettle and stir­ring con­stantly to a spread­a­ble mass, the ‘chirschmues’ (cherry puree). ‘Wim­mi­ser Chirschmues’ is a natu­ral pro­duct, which means that the yield varies from year to year and the sup­ply can be cor­re­spon­din­gly scarce. This spe­cia­lity is sold in various shops in the vil­lage.

Hud­lete & Pöög­lete – Next Generation 

At the begin­ning of every Janu­ary the evil spi­rits are dri­ven out in Wim­mis. This Wim­mis tra­di­tion, which has exis­ted for cen­tu­ries, has been suc­cess­fully car­ried out in various forms over the last 20 years.

Now it’s time to brea­the new life into the old tra­di­tion. In future the child­ren and young people will meet in the rol­ler hockey hall on 2 Janu­ary to have fun, dis­co­ver new things or ask cri­ti­cal ques­ti­ons of the community’s poli­ti­cal lea­ders. In the after­noon the child­ren head in pro­ces­sion to the old people’s home to delight the resi­dents with their sin­ging and music. Finally the pro­ces­sion reaches the castle. Will the ghost escape the kids this year…?

Leisure acti­vi­ties

The ideal star­ting point for holi­days and recreation 

The out­door play­ground for child­ren and adults is loca­ted in Wim­mis right on the door­step: locals and guests alike enjoy the pro­xi­mity to nature and the nume­rous pos­si­bi­li­ties for recrea­tion, sports, cul­ture and excur­si­ons. For more details please see Akti­vi­ties.

Forest hut and Her­ren­mät­teli bar­be­cue area 

The Her­ren­mät­teli, a clea­ring with cove­red bar­be­cue area, is loca­ted in the middle of the forest and only a few minu­tes’ walk from the train sta­tion. The forest hut, fur­nis­hed with tables and ben­ches, can accom­mo­date up to 20 people and is avail­able for rent. The costs depend on the ren­tal period.

All visi­tors are reques­ted to take good care of the forest hut and the bar­be­cue area. Please treat the Her­ren­mät­teli with respect — it belongs to our vil­lage and thus to all of us.

Fur­ther Information 

Wim­mis Tou­rism Association 

On behalf of guests and local residents

The aim of the Wim­mis Tou­rism Asso­cia­tion is to pro­mote tou­rism in the muni­ci­pa­lity by means of com­mu­ni­ca­tion, to imple­ment mea­su­res to enhance and pre­serve the vil­lage (e. g. by pro­vi­ding ben­ches or the orga­ni­sa­tion of flower deco­ra­tion com­pe­ti­ti­ons), to orga­nise the’ Chirschmu­e­set’ and to ensure the main­ten­ance of the forest hut and the ‘Her­ren­mät­teli’ bar­be­cue area. The castle and church tours, which are also orga­nised by the Wim­mis Tou­rism Asso­cia­tion, are very popu­lar. The asso­cia­tion con­tri­bu­tes to the cost of ligh­t­ing the castle and the church. The Wim­mis Tou­rism Asso­cia­tion is made up of local citi­zens who have dedi­ca­ted them­sel­ves to achie­ving these goals. The various acti­vi­ties and offers are finan­ced by the income from the visi­tor tax and mem­bers­hip fees.
