With the longest natural Kneipp path in Switzerland.

Unique views on the Chastebiel

Together with the hamlets of Ammern, Bodmen, Gadmen and Wiler, which are mentioned from the 14th century, Blitzingen has formed a community as a village since 1848. The old village center fell victim to a fire in 1932, except for the church and a few houses, and was rebuilt in 1933 in the local style. The surrounding hamlets, on the other hand, have remained almost untouched for centuries. Three chapels and the church bear witness to the spiritual life of the inhabitants. With the "Chastebiel" high above the village, Blitzingen was once the meeting place of the Zehnden. Today it is considered a place of power and offers an unforgettable view into the valley. The longest natural Kneipp path in Switzerland leads through one of the streams in Blitzingen.
