The Gorner Gorge is one of the most fascinating natural beauties of Zermatt. It lies around 20 walking minutes from the southern end of the village and is easily accessible.
For centuries, people needed to climb down one treacherous side to climb up the other. In 1893, a wooden bridge was built over this gorge. it is 48 meters long and 100 meters high.
A huge crevice vertically divides the ridge over St-Imier into two parts – the Combe Grède.
A narrow gorge, only penetrated by a few rays of sunshine at mid-day, a grotto where health seekers bathed, and arguably the most famous natural scientist as first spa physician - this is Bad Pfäfers. Today the Tamina Gorge (approx. 15 minutes from Bad Ragaz) is accessible in a more comfortable way than in the ancient past.
