Belle Epoque: A winter week like in days bygone

Kandersteg brings to life the Golden Age of Tourism by celebrating a "Belle Epoque" week: Tourism as it was one hundred years ago. During the nostalgic winter adventure week, there will be bobsledding on the original bobsled run, Eisstock-Schiessen ("Bavarian curling") and curling on the natural ice rink as well as telemark courses. The Grand Café Schweizerhof welcomes visitors at "Tea Time", and the legendary Hotel Victoria Ritter hosts an opulent Belle Epoque Ball.

Guarda – The Schellenursli-Village

Guarda in the Lower Engadine is so beautiful a village that it was awarded the Wakker Prize. It also received the distinction "Of national importance". One of its stately houses inspired Alois Carigiet when he drew the home of Schellenursli.

Salt Mines – History of White Gold

Salt belongs on the table, whether in its natural form or with added herbs. A visit to these mines, which stretch over 50 km through tunnels, shafts and gigantic caves, starts off on a train and then continues on foot. An experience not to be missed!

For centuries the ownership of salt mines meant wealth and power. The salt deposits at Bex, discovered in the 15th century, are still mined today. The salt mines are accessible to visitors, a museum depicts the mining of salt from 1684 to the present.
