Not far from Ernen, the hamlet of Mühlebach boasts the oldest village centre in Switzerland where the buildings are all made of wood. Nine houses date from the late Middle Ages (14/15th century), eight from the 16th and six from the 17/18th centuries. You can go on a tour and see the dates of construction of the houses and barns on little plaques. Information about the architectural walk is available at the Welcome Centre in Ernen.
