The village and its many hamlets was founded in 1290, but was first documented in 1305. Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp. The name Randa probably comes from the word "Rand" meaning border. The extended Baroque church, built in 1717, is a real gem.
Brunnen is situated on the shores of Lake Lucerne with views of the Urnersee to the east, and across to the Bürgenstock and Gotthard Massif.
At the northern rim of the Alps, in the midst of the Bernese Oberland, Lake Thun is surrounded by a fabulous mountain scenery, a myriad of cozy villages, and the charming cities of Thun and Interlaken. Water sports, walking and hiking along Lake Thun and on the panoramic mountains and sun terraces on both sides of the lake, as well as popular skiing areas in winter, make this holiday region a sought-after vacation and excursion destination.
