Good to Know Aktive Erholung erleben - natürlich im Obergoms Entdecken Sie eine intakte Natur- und Kulturlandschaft am Fusse der Alpenpässe Grimsel, Furka und Nufenen. Schon Johann Wolfgang von Goethe war verzaubert von diesem einmaligen schönen Hochtal. Gastfreundschaft wird hier seit jeher Gross geschrieben, nicht nur weil der "König der Hoteliers und Hotelier der Könige" Cäsar Ritz aus einem der malerischen Obergommer Dörfer stammte.
