Visperterminen

The unspoilt countryside of Visperterminen, the Heida wine village at the entrance to the Visper valley, which lies 1,378m above sea level, is a paradise for walkers and offers a fantastic view of the gleaming white 4,000m peaks of the Valais and Bernese Alps.

The people of the village still celebrate their traditions and customs, with the annual Corpus Christi procession, for example, always attracting many visitors. Sports events in the village are also very popular. At the end of the season the traditional alpine "Alex Berchtold memorial slalom" takes place, a race in which many a world cup winner has gained victory.

Heida wine village: Europe's highest vineyard
Valais is wine-growing country - and as home to the highest vineyard in Europe at a height of 1,150 metres above sea level, Visperterminen has acquired worldwide fame. In short terraces with high dry stone walls, the vineyard prevails over the narrowest spaces covering an altitude difference of 500 metres. The "Heida" wine, also known as the "pearl of alpine wines" is the trademark of Visperterminen. Those with a real interest in wine making can visit a wine cellar to discover the fine vintages or take a walk along the informative vineyard trail. The annual "Wii-Grill-Fäscht" offers a particularly impressive wine experience, a culinary tour through the vineyard on the first Saturday in September.
